I am an American who has lived in Mexico for 20 years. I live with a German colleague and my Mexican partner. We form a cozy ecclectic family. I bought our house some years ago and have fixed it up quite a bit. It mostly just needs some light maintenance. My partner has another property downtown that he rents out that also needs some maintenance.
