New Retirement book~

"Embarking on the Mariposa Trail" by Mari Pintowski

I just picked it up this weekend and finished to this AM. All about this couple from Vail, CO who picked up and moved to Tulum in Yucatan of Mexico after ER. Very well written and a must read if you are considering becoming an ex-pat to any country as it details all of the problems that can be encountered is doing business (these folks just wanted to open up a beachside B&B) in a 3rd world country. Many problems with funky laws, bribes to local officials, being patient, taking in the local color, learning about the Mayan culture etc.
