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 Replies to “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. when i lived in the US i would frequent emergency rooms for chest pain, in the philippines gone, stress flew out of the window, lost weight and feel much younger plus feel really free.

  3. food problems are likely pesticides a lot of mexican farms will not use pesticides as they are too expensive and there is no need as bugs happen-those foods get put back in the soil- the US does not do old farming anymore so they will use the soil and not turn it- instead will buy fertilizer- which is problematic

  4. The reason they spray the food's is to keep bugs and other animals from getting into the u.s. as well as diseases that are only attributed to Mexico and Americans getting the disease because they're not from the actual area the fruit comes from. widespread very widespread epidemic have come from different foods and fruits especially crossing our border not from Mexico but from many countries. In order for these companies not to get sued, they have to spray the foods.for some reason I thought everybody knew that but I must have learned it somewhere along in life. But since you live in Mexico you get accustomed to the things in Mexico very. Or at least thats the government's excuse.. I want to move to Mexico. I can barely got out of Massachusetts

  5. My apologies if this is in another post or video but how do you guys provide income while living in Mex? It’s easy for me to say work hard in the US and retire to Mex but maybe we don’t want to wait until retirement age. Thank you for your honest videos!

  6. I agree the food here in the US is poison…all for the love of money…most other countries the food is yummy cause its all natural..their not greedy

  7. I want to do that too. But I gotta wait a bit longer, I'm sure my babies would be more successful in Mexico then here in the land of the slaves.

  8. Hey Jordan Love your Channel. One observation of something you stated…..you wouldn't be arrested for drinking away from a bar, you would be cited…here in Florida its around $90.00. The biggest factor for this is to Fight underage drinking, and MADD spearheaded this decades ago. FYI…..Keep going love the Videos!

  9. Me and my fiancee are seriously considering moving to Mexico. We were wondering, personally why do you choose that place out of all of the places. Besides environment, what makes you stay there?(:

  10. Hi guys. That was a great subject regarding food and alligies. In the USA the food is very toxic and the amount of chemicals they spray the food is generally way too much. Currently the US is trying to sell to the UK "" chlorinated chicken"". So far it's been resisted by the government but for how long? Since we moved to Bali Indonesia our health has dramatically improved and the more we travel the world the more we feel that first world country pump Money into modifing foods for profits. Just my thoughts. Keep up the great videos. Thanks.

  11. Do you think it’s possible that stress was affecting your health more than actual food? Were you able to eat a normal diet when you visited Las Vegas?

  12. How about you get to be born in that country? Moving there with a pre-secured finance is not telling the whole story.

  13. Bienvenidos a Mexico, I hope you get to travel trought the entire country at least to expirience the various landscapes and kinds of people around this beautifull (yet be carefull because drug cartels are a real thing).

  14. Thanks for another great video. I watched your Vegas stuff and noticed your Mexico video. I must say I am impressed with both of you. Your approach to life is great. You are both sharp, open minded, sweet and down to earth. You work well together and are respectful You make a great couple.

  15. I lived in Mexico four months, left, went on holidays last month and now back in Australia and missing it like crazy…. how do you do with your visa guys… do you leave and return every now and then

  16. murcury and aluminum in food and from vaccines will cause all kinds of autoimmune and neurological issues. good for you. and pesticides are in everything.

  17. Do you guys know if living there is only good for a select type of people? Just curious as to why so many Mexican nationals are leaving there to come to the states if it’s as good as a lot of people are claiming it is.

  18. The us sucks because of the government I will do what ever I want to nobody gonna tell me what I'm going to do I have a plan it's either gonna work or I'm telling my wife I'm leaving

  19. Saving money to get the hell out of the states i don’t feel safe here no more sad to leave your birth country but it is what it is thinking about movie to Monterrey or Mexico City 😇🙏

  20. I am mexican and LOVE México. Now, my home is in the USA and I love it here. Question: from where do you get your money?

  21. I listened to your complete video……very rare for me…….you kept me interested the whole time……thanks……your a cute couple……

  22. What a wonderful video! If you don't mind me asking, what do you all do for income? Are you able to work in MX or do you still have a US job that you work remotely?

  23. Sign me up!!I’m over the US with there fake news and more laws every year.the rich getting richer and the poor getting 💩 look at SF great example too many homeless and drug addiction

  24. About the food, I think it is because they spray the grains with Round-up several days before harvest. Poisons us all.

  25. The Vegas videos brought me to your channel and I’m staying! It’s refreshing to watch and listen to the reasons why you’re in Mexico. You guys are such a great young couple! Keep up the great work on your channel!

  26. Yo no tuve la inteligencia para irme a Mexico cuando me case con un americano ahora pagamos mucho para mi legalidad pero en unos años si lo haremos!!!

  27. Jaja es curiosa la manera en que se crean una imagen del país, lo cual ese tipo de vida sólo se vive en playas totalmente concurridas por estadounidenses.

  28. I just hope there's a direct flight from the Philippines to Mexico and there shouldn't be any visa as we had historical ties. As a filipino, I always wanted to experiencing living in Mexico. It looks and feels like Philippines but more Hispanic

  29. I've been watching many videos about Mexico lately, and I've discovered that it's is a very vibrant, and beautiful country.

  30. That’s very interesting hearing about your food sensitivities in the states. I’m in Canada and we used to be snowbirds and go the Az in the winter. I found I was also sensitive to many foods when in Az but not in Canada. Eggs were a big one, plus many others. Makes me wonder, what are they doing to their food??!?

  31. Que risa me da viendo este video… Una pareja gringa que trabajaron en los Estados Unidos convirtieron su dinero a pesos mexicanos (a lo alto que está el peso), se movieron a Mexico, y andan en la gloria porque se ven ricos en un país donde los precios de vivir son más baratos porque es proporcional al promedio de ingresos en esa área. Y que desgracia y malagradecidos que son ellos por desvalorar las libertades y derechos que ellos tenían como siendo estadounidenses. Espero que llegue el día en que esta pareja tenga problemas económicamente para que TENGAN que conseguir trabajo en Mexico y allí van a ver la corrupción que existe en Mexico en la economía… Yo te lo puedo prometer que les van a pasar problemas que ellos no van a estar preparados para enfrentar, se van ha estresar, y van a realizar porque muchos mexicanos se quieren venir a los EEUU… Que vergüenza y desgracia que esta pareja hable tan mal del mejor país en todo el mundo…

  32. i suspect my nephew has heavy metal toxicity- for the last month he has been drinking a detox smoothie. im hoping to get him healed up. he's got babies
    thank you for posting this video and be safe down there

  33. Thank you for your kind words about Mexico, your empathy and appreciation for the culture! I really enjoy your videos and wish to travel Mexico more often!

  34. Why do people from Mexico risk their lives to come to the USA? If you arrive in Mexico, you need to have an income. To be expat, what paperwork do you need.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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.😍😍😍😍

  41. I'm envious of you two! My wife has too many entanglements with her family, so we are attached to the United States. It is difficult for me to think of anything that isn't better about life in Mexico. You talk about freedom, and you're right . . . people are much freer in Mexico. The quality of food is much better (and highly processed stuff is probably a large part of your issue with U.S. food). The culture is richer. The U.S. is too homogenized. You go to ANY town in the United States, and you'll find a Wal-Mart and a Home Depot and a Denny's and lots of Starbucks. There's virtually no diversity at all. Mexico is completely different. The people are as a rule more friendly in Mexico, probably because they're not so up tight. A really old building in the U.S. was built in the 1800s; a really old building in Mexico was built in the 1500s, or even earlier. The artwork, the architecture, the sculpture are all so much richer and freer as well. Open markets are EVERYWHERE. I have not had much need to use medical services while in Mexico, but I hear that the medical care is excellent . . . and that it, and drug prices, are SO much cheaper. Rent is cheaper. Food is cheaper. In the big cities, public transportation is much more useful. Cities are walkable. Geez, the list goes on and on.

  42. 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?

  43. 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.

  44. 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.

  45. 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🤔

  46. ….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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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!!!

  50. 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.
