Over 1 Million Americans in Mexico

As Mexicans cross the border in search of a better life, Americans are doing the same – except they are going in the opposite direction. State Department figures have confirmed that the number of Americans living in Mexico has topped 1 million, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Of course the SF Chronicle draws much different conclusions from this milestone than I do but it is nevertheless an important milestone. Ten years ago there were only 200,000 American ex-patriates living in Mexico. I beleive that in Guadalajara there are now at least two fully English speaking wards. There may be others popping up around the country as English speaking populations increase.
