why we live in mexico and not in the united states


Welcome back all you loyal tangerineys! And if you are new to our channel, My name is Maddie, and I’m Jordan, and we are Tangerine Travels. So in our last video, we asked you guys what video you
wanted to see next. And overwhelmingly. You picked number three, which is “why
we’re so glad we moved to Mexico.” At this point, it has been almost a year,
January 31st, right? Yes. A year ago January 31st we packed up our tangerine
colored car, that’s why we’re called to Tangerine travels, not because of the
fruit. [Laughter] Not the fruit. And came to Mexico. It didn’t take us long to realize this was a really
great decision that we made! Perhaps the best in our life? Over time, Why it’s the best decision we’ve made
has kind of changed, and we’ve come to Learn a little bit more about ourselves,
and about our lives, and about the world. And While this video is going to be
primarily all the positive things that have come from our decision to move to
Mexico, we won’t lie to you, it has not always been rainbows and sunshine. It has
not always been good things, there have been plenty of times where, I myself,
thought: Why did we do this? This was a mistake. What were we thinking? [Laughter] I felt like that mostly the first, like three days. Yeah big time, oh my gosh. Really long days of driving after
months and months of stressful packing, and selling stuff. Since then, a lot of times it has surrounded the rental situation – Have been a little bit stressful and all that but, But as a sweeping whole, it has been Amazing! We think back like: Why didn’t we
do this sooner? What was holding us back? So we’re gonna share what exactly
it is. Probably things that you’re not expecting as to why we’re so glad we
moved to Mexico. Alright, let’s get to it! And if you didn’t see our last video, we
are in the very beautiful, Quaint, charming fishing village of Puerto
Morelos in the Yucatan Peninsula. One of the first things that we realized when we
started traveling through Mexico is how much more freedom we have here in Mexico
than we did in the US. Of course, the u.s. is touted to be the land of the
free, and the home of the brave, and all that. But like, without getting too
political You’re really not that free to do
whatever you want. It’s like they tell you that repeatedly so that they hope you believe it. If you’re at a Restaurant, you have to have a beer
within the confines of what the liquor license covers, and if you move four
feet over with your beer, you can get arrested. Uh-huh. And you have the freedom of speech in the US, but only to a Certain extent. But here in Mexico, you have the freedom to do what you want. And people also respect
that. And you respect other people. You Might not always like that people are
shooting rockets off in the street or playing the music that they want at
certain hours of the day and night, but you do have the freedom to do that, and
people generally are very welcoming and accepting of that. This was one of
the first realizations we had when coming to Mexico, and it’s kind of like
the US has become such a culture of: “We should have a law against that. That
should be illegal.” And then pretty soon you can’t do anything. And you’re scared
to think outside the box and do other things for fear of being reprimanded in
some way, shape, or form. As I remember you saying a while back, it’s kind of
creating a society full of idiots. Oh yeah, uh-huh. That and social media. The next one on our list is something I
personally find so so refreshing after living in the US, and that is, I believe there is less focus on body image and looking a certain way in Mexico. I’ve
felt, people in general are more free to own their body type and look how they
look as opposed to in the u.s. where There’s so much focus on… Especially for
women, having a small waist, having zero body fat, but huge boobs, and a huge butt,
and all these like boxes that you have to check off in order to be “pretty.”
And here, I think there’s just less focus on that and more focus on things that
actually matter, like family, friends. There’s stuff happening in the u.s. to
sort of correct that a little bit, or People attempting to change the negative
body image That many men and women have. Like a company called Aerie by American Eagle who doesn’t retouch their photos in Photoshop or anything.
And so they allow people to embrace the Flaws that they have and love their body
anyway. But I think, as a rule, that’s not The way it is in the U.S. It’s about
changing yourself to be perfect, “perfect.” [Laughter] And here, not so much. But I guess, to just
wrap this one up, something that I’m glad for being in Mexico is that people
aren’t constantly judging what your appearance looks like. So I feel like I
can let my guard down, and that’s just not such a heavy focus in culture, which
is very nice, and I think the way it should be. We both came to Mexico
thinking that the landscapes were basically either desert or beaches, which
was kind of stupid to think that. It’s Just such a gigantic country. But, through
our travels, we’ve seen every kind of landscape there is, and so much nature
from jungles, to mountains, to spas on the side of cliffs, seriously everything,
including gorgeous beaches like this! Both of us tend to feel better when
we’re around a lot of nature, just in general, how we feel in everyday life, And, there is no shortage of diversity of things like that here. The next reason we
are so glad we moved to Mexico is because people are actually present, in
Mexico. It is amazing the type of Conversations and the things that you
can accomplish when people aren’t glued to their phones 24/7. Checking likes on
Instagram, and focused on how much people Online give a crap about them in order
to validate their worth. How many views their YouTube videos get. [Laughter] We might be guilty of that one! But honestly, it’s nice to be around
people who care more about having a conversation, or spending quality time
and making memories, versus scrolling endlessly through social media. Getting
totally lost in Netflix binge watching. Tangerine binge watching, that’s okay, but
Netflix no. [Laughter] I’m just kidding. We still do that too and We’re still guilty of these things too.
But the culture in Mexico, I think is Much more – much more focused on the
people, And the what’s happening, versus a little digital robot thing and whatever
could be happening in that universe. It was almost entertaining in the U.S.
Being in a restaurant, looking around, Seeing almost every single person at the
restaurant on their phone. It was like so absurd! Why? Why? You coordinated to hang out with all these people just so that everyone could simultaneously do other
crap on their phone? Before we go into the next one, we wanted to give you guys
a quick update on our rental. On our rental situation. In our last video
we said we think we were going to sign a four month lease. Well, we just didn’t
feel right about that and we ended up Backing out, and thank goodness because
the landlord kind of went a bit off the wall. [Laughter] We politely declined because we
just went with that gut feeling of like Something about this just isn’t sitting
well with us, and we couldn’t figure out what it was. But it was like, you know
what, four months is a long time for us in our travels, and to be stuck in a
lease that… Or a relationship with a landlord that wasn’t right, would not be
good. But now we’re looking at other Options and there’s so many great
options here for us! And thankfully many that are pet friendly or owners who are
willing to allow Laska with a deposit, so that’s very nice. We don’t quite know
where yet or how long, but it could actually end up being longer like, a year.
Instead of four months, six, Or instead of six months, a year? Yeah, so
pretty exciting! It’s exciting. It’s exciting. Are you excited? [Laughter] You better! [Laughter] Or get out! [Laughter] I’m just kidding. No, come back! So we just finished a lunch at La Sirena, a very good but expensive place. [Laughter] And, The next thing we’re
going to be talking about, since we just Ate lunch, is the food. At this meal I had
eggs, and dairy, and meat. Three things, among many others, that I was not able to
eat when in the United States still. At the time of leaving, I was basically limited
to eating about five foods including: cauliflower, purple cabbage, rice, olive
oil, and a few spices. Guys, that is no exaggeration! She was miserable! Food in the US was killing her. Everything was giving you a reaction. And I do have to
say a big thank you to you because I honestly don’t know at the last – At the
time when we were leaving, and the year and a half, almost two years before that.
Really, what I would have done if you weren’t there trying to make my life
easier in every way, shape, or form. Down to like the littlest things like going
to Sprouts and sending me pictures of products that I might be able to have
and whether I would want them. But, right before coming to Mexico, I was only able
to eat a few foods, and it was completely miserable! It was like, I’m in my early
20s and my health is like this. What’s even the point? I mean, you expect to have these health Problems when you’re like in your 80s.
And to be dealing with stuff like this. So then I came to Mexico, no not me, we. [Laughter] We
came to Mexico, And all of a sudden I was just
attempting, like okay, what would happen if I ate egg? Because in the U.S. if I
ate an egg, I would have a migraine that would last one to two days. Nothing,
nothing could fix. This was like a month in. A month after coming to Mexico.
Yeah, finally had the courage to do that, And nothing happened. It was like, what the
heck?!? I know this would cause a migraine in the US! So that I’m like okay how about
cheese? How about this vegetable? How about this
fruit? How about whatever, I just started introducing so many more things and nothing. Nothing happened. It was kind of strange.
All this to say though, since coming to Mexico, I’ve basically been able to open
up my diet to all the normal foods that Normal humans should be able to eat like
fruits and vegetables of all kinds, nuts, Seeds, legumes. I don’t really know what
exactly has caused all these things. I’m no scientist, I have not done studies. Is it genetic modification becoming more prevalent? Is it pesticides? Like new
types of pesticides? More of them being used? Things like that. And what portion
of it is that versus you detoxing mercury Because that could be something that’s causing you to get better as well. Yeah. As I have mentioned so many times but I’m going to bring it up once more to put this in
perspective, right before coming to Mexico I found out that I had heavy
metal poisoning, specifically mercury toxicity, like crazy bad! On the scale of
.2-.8 mine was a 5.1. It is a little bit hard to say if it was
caused, if my intolerances to food were Caused by pesticides, or genetic
modification, or some other like nefarious thing going on, or if it’s due
to heavy metal poisoning. But either way, Coming to Mexico, I’m able to eat food
again, and it is a miracle! The food is Much more natural here. There’s something
messed up about the food in the US! There’s so many people who are getting
allergies, and these allergies were unheard of 10, 20 years ago. And now it’s
just wide spread throughout society. And Epidemic. So There’s something going on, and the food there is totally F#@!$% F#@!$%. I was fortunate enough not to have all those problems, But, I saw what you went through. I mean, but coming up to the end, you were
also developing an avocado thing. Oh yeah That’s true too. Which had never been…
Mm-hmm, avocado and some nuts. Maybe you Guys have some insight on this? When we
mentioned this briefly in another video A few months ago, someone had said “Hey, I work at the border, actually, and we receive the food from Mexico that was grown in Mexico.” Oh yeah, this was crazy! This blew my mind! “We receive this
food, we have to wear full-body hazmat suits with like breathing apparatus
[Maddie struggling to come up with the plural of “Apparatus”] [Laughter] Because we have to spray stuff all over all the produce
that comes into the U.S. And if that’s not freaking terrifying, I don’t know what
is! They can’t breathe it in but then we the population of the U.S. eat it after
that? And somehow it’s okay. I don’t know. I don’t know! Small amounts of poison is okay. In small amounts, as long as you don’t eat what’s required for a normal human being to
survive. Yeah, okay. So this is a big one! The cost of living. We can live a much
better life here on the same amount of money than we could in the US where we
were at. Yeah, so our rent with utilities, internet, all
that put together, it was about fifteen hundred US dollars. For that price we can
live a “lavish budget lifestyle.” Like We’re not going out to any restaurant
that we want to, although we can eat out at a restaurant for every meal, and we do
choose to do that most of the time. We can do things like get full-service
laundry as opposed to doing our laundry, Which often we can’t anyway because there isn’t a washer and dryer. And have a house cleaner come every week or two. And That’s really something that pretty much
only millionaires can afford in the U.S. We’ve said this before, but here it’s
typically about… This is a huge generalization because Mexico’s huge, the
US is huge, Totally varies based on where you’re at.
But typically, things cost about a third of what they cost for us in the US. In Phoenix, specifically. Yes. Phoenix is a much lower cost of living city anyway. And then, of course, this is not comparing Phoenix to a place like Playa del Carmen,
the most expensive place in Mexico we’ve experienced. But, like you said, as a
general rule, probably about a third. Mm-hmm. Except for some things like electronics. And just to put this whole budget lavish lifestyle thing in a nutshell, what can
we Really get for about the price that we are
paying for rent and utilities back in the US? Rent and utilities, eating out
for every meal, not expensive restaurants, But at cheaper restaurants we can do
that. We can get our clothes washed at Lavanderias. Gas, house cleaner, house
cleaner, Maybe tolls. Tolls can be expensive. So gas we could definitely
throw in that budget. But basically what we consider living a very very good life. Yeah, we can do it on just what our rent and utilities cost in Phoenix. Yeah. I’d pretty much say we want for nothing. And This is exactly the type of life I would
want. To be perfectly honest, I’m not – I’ve never strived to be a millionaire,
or have a ton of money, or drive a really fancy car. Although I think my car’s kind of
fancy. [Laughter] it’s not an expensive car though But this is a nice life and putting
that alongside things like: people value relationships and spending time together
it’s a very fulfilling life. Like all in all, it’s just a super fulfilling life! So totally unrelated to this video, we’re gonna be walking in this convenience
store. Back when we were living in Guadalajara, we asked how the heck do you
pronounce this because it’s nothing – We Imagined it was nothing like the way you
would say an English word. And people were like: Oh, it’s as if you were saying
oak as in the type of tree, so, the connective word. And then we taught ourselves, after so long, to say it oak-so And then we heard a commercial, by the
company itself, where in fact they were not pronouncing it oak-so, they were
pronouncing it ox-so, exactly like we Did in the first place. [Laughter] Now I have to untrain that and it’s already taking forever! [Laughter] And we just noticed something so Mexican in there. There’s like a fresh produce rack and it’s stocked very well! Very well. [Laughter] It’s
stocked very Mexican. It has onions, tomatoes, and limes. So if you ever need to make some emergency salsa. [Laughter] So our budget and expenses sort of lead
us into the next one on our list and that is in Mexico, it is far less
materialistic. Which we view as a good thing. I’m sure most people would view that as a good thing. Whether it’s because They don’t have the money or not, people
are just not buying stuff all the time. Unnecessary stuff. And that really
helps with our budget because we don’t really buy things. Yeah. We’re not buying
clothes all the time. We’re not buying 2-day crap off of Amazon. Like, that honestly, I don’t
really think I was buying that much stuff off of Amazon. But breaking the
habit of like “Oh, I’ll just get it on Amazon.” Took a while. And there is Amazon in Mexico but like a 2-day quick shipping thing, that’s not really a thing. [Laughter] And a much smaller selection. And a much smaller selection, yes. So we like
that it allows us to focus on things that actually matter, like making
memories here in Mexico versus buying things that seem like they would make us
happy or fulfill us in some way, but at the end of the day, do not. And speaking
of making memories in Mexico, during this year, moving to Mexico. This has been the
most memories that we’ve made, the most things that we’ve done, and experienced,
and tasted, and people that we’ve met. Than probably the whole rest of our
lives, Combined. Yeah, it’s been incredibly
fulfilling, and amazing, and I can’t believe The number of things we’ve done here.
Yeah, still blows my mind to think that it’s only been a year, but it’s also been
a year! It’s long, it’s felt long, and short at the same time. Long in the sense, I can’t
believe we’ve done so much! And short in the sense, I can’t believe it’s already
been a year! I don’t know about you, but I’m very thankful for this year because
I know if we hadn’t done this, we would be living our very routine lives, working
everyday, taking the occasional weekend Trip, and maybe a trip to Europe for a
conference every year. Working every week of the year except for a few fun weeks.
And living the whole life, boring, blah. I’m glad we did this for that reason
alone. So, when we say we can eat out for every meal, it’s not always a fancy place.
In fact, it’s usually not. It’s usually a place more like the one we’re at right
now. In which, I ordered eggs with bacon And then we get coffee, and then an agua
fresca, and all of that, in total, is 60 pesos. So it becomes a lot easier to eat
out when you can get a huge meal for three dollars! Okay Laska, you take it from here. [Laughter] [Laska talking] This might be my favorite
one on the list! And that is travel, and living in a new culture, and learning a
new language, really opens up your mind, And it makes you see the world in a
whole new way that you never did before. Pretty soon after we had first started
dating, we went on our first big trip together. And my first ever international trip. We Went to Amsterdam, and it was for a
conference called SteemFest. I had this Realization, just how little I actually
knew about people, about the world, about language. So many people at this
conference we’re saying “Oh yeah, I only know four languages.” What? [Laughter] Oh, well, just know my piddly old one. That I can’t even Speak sometimes very well. [Laughter] And the next year we went to another conference and that was, well that took us to Madrid and
Lisbon. Once again, we were like “We need to travel more!” By that time at least,
we had started doing Spanish lessons and maintained doing them, 30-minute audible
lessons every single day, so that we could be a
little bit less of idiots than we were before. But I don’t think there’s really
any way we could describe travel good Enough to really hone in on the point of
what it does for you, like what it does to expand your mind, to make you more
empathetic of people, to just like broaden your horizons. And that’s like a
huge reason why we did this in the first place. Come what may, good or bad, we
know that it’s going to be a fulfilling experience. Yeah. It’s really hard to put
into words what learning a new language, And living in another culture does for
you. Oh yeah, throwing language into the mix! Yeah, how it opens up your eyes. But, one example I have of this, is that, living in the U.S. When someone would say “I don’t have none,” I thought that was a sign that they just weren’t smart. But, after learning Spanish,
you realize no, that doesn’t mean they’re dumb. Spanish is their first language because that’s how you say it in Spanish. Mmm-hmm. But I think at the very core of this is just That there’s really nothing that
compares to actually traveling, going out and doing things yourself. Like
experiencing… Bug on me. Experiencing all this stuff in person. But hopefully we did a good
job of explaining that, but like I said, It’s impossible to really hone in on
exactly the power of travel without actually doing it, or perhaps watching
Tangerine Travels videos. So if you Haven’t already, please subscribe! [Laughter] There is a glamorous side of it, of course. There’s the fun, the memories that
you can make. But then there’s also the side, like every day we are experiencing
situations that we have absolutely no idea how to handle, in English, let alone in
another language! [Laughter] And then trying to Think of what we need to say or ask like
how do you even do something. Sometimes we can’t even figure out the heck how to
say that in Spanish! So it’s it’s a very Humbling exercise daily. And I think it
keeps us grounded. If you want to travel to a Spanish-speaking country and learn
the language, we highly recommend Rocket Languages. It’s been a lifesaver for us
to develop our Spanish skills as we’ve been in Mexico. And if you purchase it
through our link that we’re going to put down in the description below this video,
we will get a nice chunk of change from that, which helps us continue our travels
and keep making more videos like this one. Back when we were in Ajijic, we met
this really nice guy named Marc, and he ended up tagging us in a Facebook post
that said “My wife asked me to go to the Tienda for jalapeño peppers. I went down
to the plaza and asked “Necesito ayuda. Me gustaría chile jalapeno.” The nice young
lady pointed them out to me and I said gracias. Paid for them with Cinco pesos.
Not a word of English was spoken. This is Not the first time this has happened but
the most complex and complete Spanish Conversation so far. I took this course
based on the recommendation of Tangerine Travels. And we were so so delighted to
hear this because not only is it a big triumph and a win when we can have full
conversations. But we remember back to the days where it was like “Oh my gosh! I
just had this whole conversation in Spanish and it didn’t blow up in my face!”
So it’s really cool when we get to hear That other people are having those same
breakthroughs because of a really All-inclusive awesome program like
Rocket Spanish. So people mention this One all the time when talking about
Mexico, and that is the more laid-back lifestyle and you’re on Mexican time. I have
to say though, there is an exception while driving. They are not laid back
while on the road. [Laughter] However, just in general, they know how to relax, and know
how to just unwind, and it’s not “go go go, work, work work” all the time. Yeah, so it’s okay to
take a leisurely walk sometimes or have Sobre mesa, where you just talk to the
people you’re with after you’re done eating. Sobre mesa? Is that what that’s
called? I think so! Oh. [Laughter] I’m sure we could come up with Many many more, but these are just a few
of the reasons why we’re happy with the decision that we moved to and started
traveling through Mexico. And are now living here. Thanks for watching this
video guys! If you liked it, please give it a thumbs up! And if you think someone
might appreciate this perspective and our experiences, share it with a friend!
Or, if you’re trying to convince someone to travel to or move to Mexico, share
this video with them! Please subscribe to our channel if you haven’t already and
one more thing. GONG THAT BELL so you Get notified the next time we put out a
new video and we’ll see you in the next one!

100 thoughts on “why we live in mexico and not in the united states

  1. There are some things we didn't talk about in this video which we absolutely LOVE about Mexico: The people and its history, to name a couple. What are YOUR favorite things about Mexico?

  2. One important fact: This realization or epiphany of the strong differences between the US and Mexico are ONLY possible when you put your foot literally on the other side of the border. The reason is because the truth is hidden in many ways. The only four things good about the US are (and we should be grateful and feel highly privileged though) : the passport, the language, the money and the easy access to education.

  3. A word on food intolerance… Had a similar experience with allergic reactions to foods in the states, then went to Korea and was able to eat those foods. Had allergy problems on the east coast US, then moved to Greece, and no problems.
    Sometimes your immune system can be overwhelmed by many little things that you're sensitive to… but not allergic… then more irritants will tip the balance, and symptoms will present themselves. Stress taxes the immune system as well.

  4. I can relate! I also have food allergies. I just got back from Colombia and I was able to eat everything, I return the the US eat ice cream and my face starts flaring up. Makes you wonder what’s in our food.

  5. They feel more free in Mexico until there's an incident and then they will be calling the US embassy to get their asses out of there or calling their families to find them an American attorney with clout in Mexico. As a Latino who emigrated to the US, I can tell they really don't understand the philosophical differences between the cultures, governments and legal systems and are misleading others with their superficially naive opinions.

  6. I think any countries are not like US because I grew up in Asia. If my country wasnt corrupt I wouldnt be here. It's always about work here no life. I don't want to be in a rat race forever, I want to retire early not waiting for 65 and for sure I'm not going to retire here I will keep my options open.

  7. What a refreshing place and looks serene .☺️Freedom at its best I am hating the US recently and it's becoming more and more a prison everyday here and I live in San Antonio,Texas and can't wait to love this state and place has ruined our family and our lives .I really can't wait to travel and move .🙂🤗People seem so beautiful and down to earth there and familia is top priority.😍😍😍😍

  8. Guys, you're pretty much damaged or sick. You're sitting in a place where people is very ignorant, lazy, and very agressive or hostile. Every place is full of garbage . Have you ever seen a beheaded person? A hung under a bridge? Do you love communism? Well, Mexico is a communist "country" as from 2019. Aren't you afraid about women in Mexico are killed ALL days?

  9. I totally agree with everything you're saying I moved ten years ago to Ecuador with my two young daughters they finish school now and are going to college. And I myself and planning on going to Mexico. Regarding the food that is 100% right and it's not just elderly people now getting sick and getting cancer its younger peoplemany Americans are just brainwashed about how great America is in people I talk to don't even own passports or have you even left their state in 40 years it's crazy and people think that I'm nuts for leaving.why do you think Michelle Obama wouldn't even eat food from grocery stores or even whole foods she was growing their own at the White House.

  10. Good for you guys. The USA ain't shit anymore. We're fed this bs propaganda that we're the "greatest country on earth" while homelessness continues to pile up in cities all over the country, mass shootings become a regular occurrence, and everything has become so divisive and polarized that everybody blames each other for the cause of everything while nobody offers solutions. We're a joke of a nation. Pretty soon, automation will decimate thousands more jobs putting the poverty rate in our country on steroids.

  11. Hmmm If Mexico is that terrific I wonder why the illegals are so very insistent on crossing the border to come here to the USA and not simply content to stay in Mexico🤔

  12. ….and is increíble that many people that live in other countries thing that the USA is the paradise and do whatever to come. I agree the life out of the States is much better.

  13. Because of cost of living and quality of life I'm considering retiring in Mexico. Happy to get your endorsement. Perhaps I should start taking Spanish classes again. 😀 Edit: Oh! Perhaps I will sign up with Rocket Languages.

  14. You are so right about the food here in the states. My husband is British and was living in Ireland when we met and so I had my own adventure. I packed up what I could in 2 huge suitcases and moved to Ireland to be with him. It was almost immediately that I noticed the same food I ate in U.S. that I was eating in Ireland didn't make me sick. Omg after doing some investigation I found that a huge amount of preservatives, hormones, pesticides and the like in the U.S. in our food we consume are more or less banned in European countries. Our government allows these poisonous chemicals etc into our food. Well due to me finding out I have Multiple sclerosis, we decided to come back to the states. Almost immediately my husband and myself became very sick after eating the food . That is when we decided if we do not grow it or know who grows it and how they grow the food, then we will not be eating it. That was the best decision we made. Now we make sure we know exactly where our food comes from and who is growing it and how they grow it. Pesticide free, hormone free and in general it is actually just food nothing added. We should not be afraid of our own food in the states but it is a sad fact we have to be. I think it is amazing the both of you moved to Mexico and it was the best thing you could do for your health. Love the videos thanks for sharing.

  15. I live a wonderful, healthy, allergy free life in the USA.
    I would love to visit Mexico, again, but never would want to live there.
    I guess you are young and discovering the world.
    You are creating your life!
    KUDOS! Enjoy!!!

  16. Food issues here in the US is mostly caused by the glyphosate that's sprayed on them and everything else…its horrifing! Also yes GMOs, your body doesnt know how to process fake food. Our body needs real food to be healthy…. I'm a certified nutritionist. If you have any issues feel free to ask, I'll do my best to help.

  17. I have a question for you both. Making the "assumption" that you two will decide to have children someday, will you raise them in Mexico? And, if so, what is the educational system like?

  18. Yes, there is also illegal targeting going on in this country and targets are called targeted individuals. They are stalked watched experimented on harassed destroyed etc. Because they are not needed or not liked, etc. Just like blacks and American indians were persecuted here for centuries.

  19. I’m glad you found Mexico so great to live in, now that you are trying to live in a country where everyone speaks a different language than you, perhaps you can appreciate what the Mexican people that travel to the United States have to go through, just imagine what your life would be like if you had the government harassing you, people discriminating against you and ridiculing you because you speak differently or with an accent. You should do a video comparing the way that you are living compared of how the United States treats immigrants. Specially since you come from Arizona, one of the most unfriendly states for immigrants.

    J
    It’s nothing against you, but just as you got your eyes opened up you should let your followers from the States know and maybe they should treat people like people and not some type of inferior creature.

    Great video, I seem a few of your videos and it seems like you have found happiness, with yourselves, with each other and with the place you chose to live in. Congratulations not many people can say that they have achieved that in their lifetime!

  20. i live in Australia and after spending 6 weeks in El Salvador i can relate to a lot of this, i want to live in Mexico or central America really bad….. i believe its my destiny to do so!

  21. You guys should try and visit
    Antigua Guatemala you will definitely love it it is a gem 💎 in my country and i will say in the entire world

  22. What did the doctors suspect as the cause of the mercury ingestion? Fish? I read something today about cold cream (Pond's?) causing some people to become ill with mercury poisoning.

  23. Awesome video !!! Thank you for sharing your experience of moving to this wonderful country where the people are kind and life clearly is great !!!

  24. You work where? You do know American Corp. Are number 1 growers in Mexico. Reason, cheap labor and no pesticide regulations….use what they want…yes pesticides used in Mexico. Lots of chemicals used freely in drugs and pesticides direct from China.

    How's the car exhaust ?

  25. Wow, somehow I ran into your account and I truly admire your decision to moving out to another country. I've taken the last year and a half to travel and live abroad and have to say "woke" myself up. I've been off the routine and so happy that I did. Continue to "live" and travel.

  26. I'm happy that you are able to eat again. My guess is that the food wasn't the problem, but all the pesticides and chemicals in food in the US. When you read an ingredient list in the US, it sounds like the supply list for a laboratory.

  27. GMO in the US is horrendous! I live in Playa del Carmen now and mist travel to the US every 3 months for 14 days and suffer horribly

  28. you guys are so cute!! Glad you live in Mexico.
    My husband and I are from Mexico and Ukraine and we also decided to settle down in Mexico ❤
    We make videos too if somebody would like to see them, i'd appreciate it so much!

  29. Thanks, there is so much truth in what you say, autoimmune reactions, idiots, Direct hit I can see it floating on top of the water, in some areas. Something is up regarding this.

  30. Tf mexico is better ? Then why are their people risking everything coming over here. I dont think so. Nothings better than the USA. The cartel runs mexico

  31. I like the blue sky, no chemtrails… Sorry I'm into that stuff. Love your videos and God bless you for all the great advice you give to people.

  32. I just started watching your channel. Basically because I am going through Mexico withdrawal. I haven't been there in….hum…6 months now. So everything you say in your video is why I came back home to TX from my first time down there and told my husband, we should retire or move to Mexico in a few years. Like no joke. Having laundry service when we were there (game changer!), Chedraui shopping 🙂 and they don't care at all about body image and I LOVE IT. Went to the beach…everybody of every size wore bikinis or one piece nobody looks…nobody cares…they just are having a good time. And the people are so friendly…let me just stop. I need to watch one more of your videos before bed. haha

  33. I do like you guys and your channel, however, you do realize that the overuse of social media and "little digital robot things" are the only reason you have this job. It made me laugh when you said this.

  34. I want to move over there specifically to Monterrey but I dont know how to start. Can anyone who has give some suggestions on how to start were to live or how to find a place?

  35. Tengo 26 años living in chicago im so ready to move back to huatulco mexico my home town .. im tired of this life here in the us paresemos máquinas aqui

  36. I did the same thing but went to the Philippines I absolutely love it there. Only issue I had there was 3 weeks after arriving I had a ruptured brain aneurysm which required open brain surgery so after all that I’m back in the states but going back soon. It’s taken a lot of rehab but I’m working hard to go back. Plus at 51 it sucks staying with your parents. The Filipino people are very warm and inviting the food is great because your on islands not much beef or milk. You can but beef it’s just little more expensive and milk you can’t get it jugs there it all powdered milk. The biggest thing I wanted you to see compared to Mexico is $1 USD = 53 Philippine peso. Yes it’s called peso there too but not the same as Mexico. Glad your having a great time I had a condo in Porta Vallarta Mexico and I really liked it there but I personally like the Philippines better. Getting around is very easy too. There are tricycles (motorcycle with sidecar) very inexpensive to use, jeepney’s, Taxis are abundant and Grab (nice taxi). Enjoy your time I won’t take anymore of it. Lol

  37. When I saw my colorful colonial era hometown get half destroyed and had American style shopping centers, restaurants, businesses etc I was glad the mighty symbol of American superiority reached my country. You may like that culture you see in Mexico, fact of the matter is a lot of us natives who are viewed subhuman by regular Mexicans want to turn our country and model it in the image of the United States a bastion of capitalism where money talks and all else is set aside. That is preferable to that messed up racist culture in Mexico. I hope to see my country which I will probably never see in person again become a fast paced 1st world nation with an American/European culture and work ethic. Monterrey is a fine example of what Americanism can do to a country that’s poor. And that’s what we want.

  38. You two put on a great channel, thanks. I have lived in Mexico 17 years now and traveled N,S, E and West on moto and car. My biggest complaint, which is small, is that the price of gas. In 2016, I believe, the gas subsidizing by the Gov't ended The price use to be 14p a liter. One other thing dog food is almost double the price. We go through 2, 55lb bags a month! Bottom line don't have a big truck (14 Dodge 2500) and big dogs!

  39. Mexico is nice place to live if you have money or have a good job. You can get a visa to work in the US in a seasonal job. And make a good living in mexico.

  40. As a child, my mom fed me every fruit there was, and especially apples. I grew to love eating apples. All of a sudden, as a teenager, I had an awful allergy after eating an apple. Then kiwi. Then plum. I literally had to stay away from various fruits for over a decade. Then I took a trip to Israel, and went to their fruit market in Jerusalem. I tried fruit there…AND NOTHING!

    I have a picture of me standing with our tour group, and eating a bunch of fruits from a bag, and my whole face and shirt is dirty from all the natural fruit juices!

    America sprays pesticides and insecticides. Why!!!!!!!!!!!!?

    I can relate to you.

  41. I call the US the matrix. This place is a surveillance police state. I felt so free in Panama, Philippines , and Costa Rica

  42. Your Vid is right-on on all points!!!! New Sub! My dogs have allergies. Vet put them on Benadryl. Thats redic! I have 2 filters on our water. I cook for my dogs now (what I eat, Organics) and Kefir. Our allergies are GONE!

    Its more lax than most countries. Most, if you are retired, you have to buy $500,000-$1mil in real estate to live there. BTW, the USA gives immediate citizenship + 10 jobs to anyone who invests $1 million in an American Corporation. Its been this way for many decades. Appears Our Government/Corp discriminates against the poor.

  43. Mexico is one of the most, if not the most biodiverse country in the world, so yeah, you'll not see just beach and desert.

  44. I only disagree about the freedom of speech. America you can say whatever you want freely, there are no laws that restrict you from it. I dare you to talk bad about the cartels, i dare you to talk bad about the problems in the “gov” in mexico lol.

  45. There is a very large very loaded TANGERINE tree only two and a half blocks away where I pass on walks right here in California. They taste even better with refrigeration. I love tangerines.

  46. I live in the in Los Angeles and my whole neighborhood is just Mexicans we live by the * you mind your business I mind mine * rule but we are also all cool with each other same thing with my family neighborhoods in Mexico

  47. I moved to Mexico too, I'm a US citizen but of Mexican ancestry so Mexico isn't as foreign as it could be to other Americans. Lovely place.

  48. You are soooooooooo UN-patriotic! If you don't like America, than GET OUT!!! . . . . Oh, you already have. Happy expat life ~

  49. She said that Americans are really obsessed about one's physical appearance, especially body-shape, especially for women, having to be slim with Big Ones. I could have sworn that has gone out of fashion. Nowadays it seems that being really BIG, big stomach, big hips, big thighs is in.

  50. Yes you can have a better life in Mexico for the same amount of money the problem is that you don't earn the same amount of money working in Mexico

  51. There's definitely something new in gallon milk, my brother in law can't have it without a reaction (docs couldn't figure it out) but organic is fine.

  52. California past over 800 laws this year. It passed over 1000 in Governor Brown’s last year in office.

    It’s ridiculous.

  53. My need to be happier in north america would be to have what you mentioned at 5:35 "People are more present and not glued to their phones, having conversations with people, spending quality time & creating good memories etc." I found your video because I lived in Peru for 6 month and meet many people from mexico in Vancouver and thought maybe I should try to go back for 6 month with the thought of staying, maybe mexico is better for me as a person, or let’s say for the way I like to connect with people. Having over 1000 facebook friends and think that you’re not making any real connections anymore, makes me uncomfortable in a country where a lot of my latino friends rather stay. I guess it’s true that the grass is always greener somewhere else. You’re really inspiring me with your videos, thank you for saying what you said. It gives me hope that I can change my situation!!!

    I can’t even pay the dentist in Canada, could you do a video on that?! I might go south Peru or Mexico next year and get my teeth fixed in Guadalahaja. I have a friends aunt there who is a dentist so I am not scared of getting scammed!

  54. Mexico is nice if you have $$ the salary they pay in mexico is garbage. Thats why people go to the UNITED STATES just for the $$ . SO if you have dlls xoming from retiredment or pension from THE US you will be ok. But i dought if this couple would work 6 days a week 48 hours a week for 80 to 100 dlls. A week.
