I do not make reservations, rent homes, support brujos or do homework.
I am not Mexican nor "Estadounidiense" although my last passport says the latter.
Neither am I a "Don" nor a gringo, although locally I've been nicknamed "Don

Born in Belgium and raised in Germany, I emigrated to the US in 1959. I first
arrived in Mexico from Florida in 1962 to attend Mexico City College, which is
now the Universidad de las Americas.
In 1966 I emigrated to Australia and later lived for at least 6 months in 20 cities, 8
countries and 4 continents.
In 1988 I received US citizenship and continued to spend time in Venezuela, Baja
California, Southern California, Nevada and Miami. In 2002 I decided to move to
Los Tuxtlas, primarily because there are mountains on the coast, it is near to
Florida and I liked the look of the Catemaco lake.
I would have left in 2003, but a Popoluca bewitched me.

I like comments, additions, suggestions, and especially corrections.
