June 27, 2005 — I first became aware of Rolly Brook from his many helpful posts on the Mexconnect forum. (I’ve mentioned Mexconnect before — it’s a membership forum, recently turned free,  that has provided me with a tremendous amount of information.)

Rolly lives in Lerdo, Durango. His website, www.rollybrook.com, is a mixture of personal and informational, rather like mine. But he’s far more of an expert than I am on many of the practicalities of Mexican life, and he has more patience than I do in explaining them!

Good reading and reference for anyone who’s thinking of living in Mexico or retiring in Mexico, as he has done. Unlike most of us, he lives in the midst of a large Mexican extended family.
