OK, I'll bite. I just happened to check the board today and noticed these words of Don's. I forget the circumstances under which I interrupted my posting, but it's not really important. It wasn't related to the 2016 US election, because it was before that. I go in cycles with message boards and social media even at the best of times. I can be moody and I know it.
Anyway, I'm in Querétaro, Mexico, teaching business and conversational English privately to adults. It is 100% my own enterprise and is thriving, although it will never make me rich. I have Residente Permanente status in Mexico and am happy to be living outside the US, where the situation seems a little bizarre to put it mildly. I have only spent four hours in the US since mid-2010, and that was for a layover at LAX when I was moving from South Korea to Mexico.
My first three years in Mexico were spent teaching at the Tecnologico de Monterrey campus in Culiacán. That city is the home base of famed drug lord Chapo Guzmán, and I taught a lot of narco kids at that school. It was bizarre and interesting. You could say that I've gone full Graham Greene at this stage in my life. But Querétaro is pretty much the polar opposite of Culiacán, safe and successful - although crime seems to be on the rise lately (there was a triple assassination in a mall food court a couple of weeks ago).
I seem to be reading more than watching films lately, but I haven't lost my interest in noir.
