This book is divided into two parts; One is a detailed description of life in the foreign colony of Ajijic on Lake Chapala in Central Mexico, the other a more general book about expatriate living in foreign colonies. The description of the village of Ajijic is detailed as are the characterizations of the expatriates living there in the late 60's and 70's at a time of wealth in America and a very strong dollar. The foreign colony consisted then of mainly younger people with a large percentage of artists and writers who were living off of very modest incomes or their own wits. This book comes with sketches and a small map of Ajijic. Although a book set in the past it remains a good primer for anyone interested in living abroad.
