  1. Hi all! Do any of you woodworkers know of a place where I can regularly purchase wood for my work? I've been hopping around different madererias and it's been difficult to find what I'm looking for. I'm looking for birch or basswood, or something similar, but I can't use plywood. Right now, I specifically need a piece that's a 60cm square. ANY suggestions would be much appreciated, I am willing to travel. I'm a pyrography artist, need high-quality, cured wood.
  2. Long story short, I have my Canadian grandmother here in Ajijic (she's been here for 45 yrs) and my dad is a Mexican from GDL. His family is quite large (he's 1 of 9), so I have a huge family here that I wasn't raised around. I returned this summer on vacation, fell in love with it and decided to stay to reconnect with my roots/culture. Don't get me wrong, I love the Ajijic/Chapala area and I'm grateful to be here, it's an entirely different world from my hometown of Sedona, AZ. But, I've been here about 7 months and it has been very difficult to meet people in Ajijic around my age and there a
  3. I feel the need to respond to this post considering all the negative responses. For context: I lived in Ajijic until I was 6, then moved to the US. I recently moved back (I'm now 26) and reconnected with many friends I had here in Ajijic; They are now engineers, lawyers, on the way to become doctors, etc. Although it will be difficult for your daughter to adjust, there are PLENTY of amazing opportunities for her here and the private education is often better than in the US. GDL is known as the "Mexican Silicon Valley," in fact. Most of the kids her age will be bilingual by this point. I
  4. Hi all! I'm a pyrography (wood burning) artist and I"m looking to sell my artwork locally. Any ideas of where to start? In the past, I've displayed my work for sale in restaurants/coffee shops but I'm not sure of where to begin to inquire about selling/displaying my work here in the Chapala area. I attached a photo of my work below as an example. I mostly create wall art, but I'm beginning to dabble in furniture as well so any and all suggestions are much appreciated!
  5. Thank you for your suggestions! I requested to join the FB group but I'm having a hard time finding the correct Chris or Ana. Do you know if they're in the group?
  6. Hello all, I recently moved to Ajijic and I'm looking to meet a group of "younger" people, anywhere around 20's-40's. I'm in my mid/late 20's and haven't had any issues meeting retirees, but it would be nice to connect with people closer to my age! I'm hoping to establish some friends here rather than having to go to Gdl for my entire social life. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
