I used to be quite a regular on these board way back in the aughts when I first come to Mexico. Met people with whom I am still friends Smile

I thought I come back and see how active this particular board is so Ill add a topic.

How many of you are long timers who have moved away from (either fully or partially) from teaching English here in Mexico? If so, what do you do?

My husband (Mexican) and I are working on projects and I curious to hear any stories out there.

I am still teaching online, but have cut back my hours. We are doing dessert tables for parties and other special order things. It has been growing, so am hoping in another year or two to cut back to teaching 10 hours a week and just do this all the time. I love baking and making all different kinds of treat, so it is not even like work! I have also been making durable dog toys and selling them on Etsy, but it is up and down, so not likely to be something to depend on.
