  • Five questions about Ukraine – Quick Quiz
    It's the largest country by land area that lies entirely within Europe. And the first line of its national anthem says, reassuringly, that it's not dead yet. But what else do you know about Ukraine?


Wonderful country?

Wonderful country?

Hi Brian

You said in your "welcome" message that Mexico is a wonderful country. I've never been there but can empathise, as where I live (Thailand) is also a wonderful place. Great climate (a bit too hot occasionally but we manage), very cheap cost of living, friendly people, laid back lifestyle, and we can get just about everything we want (British-style bacon, supermarkets, great restaurants, etc.)

I'm curious, why do you consider Mexico to be a great place to live?

1. Climate. You can find pretty much any climate you want.
2. People. Friendly.
3. Food. It's great.
4. Beer. We have some of the world's best beers here.
5. Alegria. (fun of living). Someone's always having a fiesta.
6. Tony Blair. He isn't here.
7. Health service - better than the UK.
8. House prices - reasonable.
9. Low violence, not like in the UK.

I've been living in Monterrey for 10 years, it is a dynamic city, very up-to-date, many of the major rock bands play here, plenty to do, plenty of places to visit. This city is much bigger than most in the US (over 4 million) and offers everything a major world-class city should offer.

Hello Barquentine,

Nice to hear you like it in Monterrey. I have a quick question. I've been offered a job in Tampico. I've been there before (years ago mind you) and I have spent a fair bit of time in Mexico (I used to work at sea). I currently live in Antigua.

Im currently looking for a good real estate company with a decent website so I can get an idea of my housing options in Tampico but I have yet to find anything comprehensive. I dont suppose you know of any do you?
