A Terrific Ride,
This review is from: Gringos in Paradise: An American Couple Builds Their Retirement Dream House in a Seaside Village in Mexico (Hardcover)
This is a smart, funny and ultimately even touching book. In recounting his and his wife's adventures -- and misadventures -- as they set about building their dream house in Mexico, Golson is a surrogate for an entire generation; those of us who, having come of age in the Sixties and accustomed to living life on our own terms, now find ourselves wondering what the next chapter will bring. In addition to being a compelling personal story, this book tells any reader considering retiring south of the border anything he needs to know.
