  You had been thinking of investment opportunities. You visited Mexico; fell in love with the country, its food, its beaches. You looked at condos, did the numbers, they worked and you realized not only could you have your little piece of heaven there but you could also rent it when you were not using it. And now you are actually going to Mexico to take ownership of your Mexican home. Very exciting! How about the furniture? Well, you have too much furniture in your home in the States or Canada anyway, and wouldn’t it be nice to just brin...

Yes, the kitchen is the heart of your Mexican home. Do you remember the beautiful onion slicing scene in the movie “Like Water for Chocolate?” I do. It seems to me that any memories that involve food and kitchens are always more vivid. It makes perfect sense: they are accompanied by flavor, color, textures, aromas all of which makes them more evocative and powerful. Building a great Mexican kitchen When considering your furniture choices in Mexico, do pay close and special attention to your kitchen. Not only is it the heart of your Mexican...

I just recently returned from a trip to Mexico. I know there’s ample coverage in the media regarding safety and difficulties for travelers in Mexico. I am happy to report I experienced nothing of the sort. The people in Mexico are friendly as ever, the food is as delicious as ever and the warmth of the country moved my heart just like every other time if not more. Having said that, I am not going to make a blanket statement regarding safety because things can and do happen. The key is in being aware, not taking chances, and exercising common s...
