It has been a very frustrating month in Mexico, but, after changing my airline reservations twice to extend my stay, I have at long last accomplished everything I needed to do before returning to Ohio. As I said in the previous post, yesterday we signed the papers, and Alejandro and I are now the owners of the condo which I have been renting since 2017. My home-away-from-home will be my permanent residence. After a lot of time spent standing in line on repeated visits to the Mexican immigration office, I am now a legal resident of Mexico. In two years I will be able to renew my visa to a permanent residency status. I called Mailboxes Etc. with a few questions that I still had, and I can register for private mail delivery online.
Tomorrow, I fly back to Ohio. Then I will have a whole new set of tasks to accomplish. The most important on my list to sell my house. I have never sold property before. I hope that it is an easier, less bureaucratic process than in Mexico. I hope that the house sells fairly quickly since I don't want to be stuck in Ohio for months on end. Perhaps I am being overly optimistic, but I would hope that by October I will be purchasing a ONE WAY ticket to Mexico!
