Today I moved house, something that we always think is stressful, time consuming and awful. Somehow Mexico makes things like that easy. A week ago I popped to the local market and bought a load of cardboard boxes that the sellers no longer needed. I wandered to the stationary store and got some bubble wrap and a wonderful friend gave me some newspaper. So with everything I needed bought for about £3/$5USD, I packed up my stuff. Today at 10am the removal guys arrived and worked their magic. They managed to fit all my possessions collected over the last 2 years into their van, fitting it all together like a jigsaw puzzle. An hour and £30/$50 later everything was settled in my new place; simple, stress-free and quick. I love Mexico!
