A great memoir spanning approximately 15 years- 1985-1999 about a couple who move from LA to Mexico. Why they did it, the town they move to, the simple pleasures they grow to enjoy and taking back their life.
It also covers how the amount of foreigners who moved to where they did have gentrified and transformed the place, for good and bad.
Definitely one of those books that make you want to sell everything and move somewhere else.

He is a talented writer with wonderful descriptions of some of the things he experienced. It would be nice to see him embrace the culture a bit more. Other reviewer have spoke badly of the author but I felt they were being a bit too judgmental.
