One of the most frequent questions I get asked here is if I like Perote, our hometown. I have never been sure how to answer. Like any place it has its pros and cons. If you want to, you can see more of the pros, or vice-versa. If I had just come here as a tourist, I don’t believe it would have made onto my list of “Places to Live.”
Whenever I first came here to live fulltime, I kept thinking, “I’m just so glad to finally be here!” After almost a year of a long-distance relationship with Rafa, it was so nice to wake up next to him each day. I didn’t care where we were.
But people continue to ask and seemed surprised that we are creating a life here….not just waiting for the first opportunity to hop on a U.S. bound plane. And that I not only live with that fact, I genuinely enjoy being here and am proud of the life we have.
What I usually say when people ask now a days: “My husband was born here and now my son as well. How can I not love a town that has given me the two people I love most in the world?”
Home is where the heart is and those two are it!
