Gringos in Paradise

Barry Golson has written a wonderful book about he and his wife's retirement to Mexico.

Golson worked for major magazines for years, but as he got older he found that editors got younger and younger and the jobs got scarcer and scarcer. Unlike many of the books where people go overseas to live the Golsons moved to Mexico to be able to live on the money they had left.

The Golsons really try to fit into their community and I enjoyed their story of settling in. He writes of the other expats and the locals with genuine affection.
