The Accidental Tapatia
Bits of my advice from my experience as a young female expat living in Guadalajara, Mexico.

From refried bean making to urban gardening to trips to the dentist and the immigration office, learning to live here one step at a time.

I'm originally from Greensboro, North Carolina and now live in Guadalajara, Mexico. I work out of my home as a manager for a Chicago-based translation company, and my life revolves around the domestic upkeep of a small bungalow-style home near Plaza Mexico, a resilient 2007 Dell laptop on which I do all my work, and (somewhat limited) conversations with a greet parrot named Sabina. I live with my tapatio boyfriend, who among other very important things, has taught me to like soccer. Other info: Translations Manager at Workforce Language Services, LLC. Student of Spanish to English translation (NYU), and part-time translator. Fan of Chivas (adoring worshiper of el Chicharo), fan of delicious food, fan of language and exploration of it.
