If a #road trip through #Mexico for years didn’t work out, what was the worst that could happen? We could always return. And if we did, we’d be more interesting, well-rounded, well-adjusted, and happier.

Why Go On a Road Trip In Mexico, Even If Only a #Medical Tourist: Feasible
* Lower Cost Of Living
Could we achieve “twice the lifestyle at half the cost”? Or was this cooked up by unscrupulous marketers? If money-saving, our lives would radically change for the better. Who’d not want to know the answer?

* Get Out Of the Bubble
In a Mexican fishing village, people earn 1/10th the income as us. In their culture, many Mexicans have had different experiences than us. They came to different conclusions and values. Testing mine against theirs, I broadened my understanding, became a better person.
