Seems the fairer sex always does this when they are younger and as time goes on they will do it less. Take the money, have fun, by yourself things, and most importantly get an education. So when said chica tires of modeling or no one wants her anymore for modeling she can fall back on something.
There is vanity all over the world. Just watch American TV, read American magazines. There is just a higher percentage of hot women in Colombia. And saying if a woman is hot and only hot you will tire of her quickly…well yeah. What if you met a girl and you two had the same favorite band, had all the albums new everything there was to know about said band. But other than that…really had nothing in common.

Merida, and surrounding areas have an extensive Mayan heritage and colonial architecture dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Father Diego de Landa—the founder of the convent, burned all of the Indian writings and then later tried to rewrite them from memory.

If time permits, travel on to Valladolid to continue experiencing indigenous style town life. Leaving early in the morning travel east to the ruins of Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza was established in A. View the Ball Court with its perfect acoustics. Visit the Observatory and the Nunnery in old Chichen. Enjoy refreshments next to the Cenote or sacred well and see if you can throw a stone across it.

Heading back east to Merida visit the rather unknown archaeological site of Ek Balam.
Expatriate Scene or Local Community Scene? There are two broad choices in terms of choosing where to locate for retirement in Mexico: The choice is a personal one, and may depend on how well you know Mexico and what your priorities are in terms of lifestyle and activities you intend to take part in.

She was in town for a job interview and had a lot of questions about how to find an apartment in Mexico City and where she should live. I realized that a lot of expats probably have the same questions and since I’ve lived everywhere in this crazy city, I thought I’d share my collected wisdom. But first, where I’ve lived in Mexico City over the past two years: A sad collection of rooms with a shared bathroom and no kitchen in Zona Rosa the worst.

May, Interesting post. In a culture that is sexually permissive to the point of 14 yr old age of consent, legal prostitution, lots of cocaine present, and poverty in general, it stands to reason that there would be a good deal more sexual activity. I think that men have often cheated in Latin Culture because it is almost expected and women accept it as a reality. Many times the woman is in NO place to eject her man from the home, so she has to accept it. This widespread thinking, though, would necessarily lead women to the idea that fucking whoever they want is just as acceptable, especially in the age of condoms and abortion clinics and penecillin.
Not sure how abortion works down there?? I do recall a monger on a forum talking about how these chicks will even talk to their boyfriends on the phone or email them DURING sex, or right before or after. I think the combination of choosing a woman of some character and principle…. It does require some adaptations from traditional thinking, which can be good, but also can become a disappointing compromise. May, I actually read a similar story to this last year.
While Mexican men have a reputation for being super macho, this is not always the case. Canadian men are more politically correct on the outside perhaps, but not on the inside.

That said, here’s my advice for non-Mexican women about what to expect.
