Going to the doctor in Mexico. Not something that a person would normally write about, much less photograph. But when you are an expat, a person who has moved to a country that isn’t their birthplace, everything tends to be a little different from home. For the most part, it’s all good. You accept it for what it is and move on. But for those that remain in their homeland, I thought it would be fun to share my point of view as an expat in Mexico. Something as simple as going to the doctor is a change from the norm for me :-)
UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that the photo of my blood being drawn was offensive to some. For this reason, I updated the post so that this picture appears less prominently. It will not be removed as having blood drawn was the main reason for this doctor’s visit.

Buy me a cup of coffee
A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going ;-) Gracias!

I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!

Interesting to read about somewhere out of my experience. I have never been to Mexico.
It is such a beautiful country. I had a lot of misconceptions about Mexico until I moved here. It’s probably that way anywhere in the world. You don’t really know it till you have lived there!
i love riding the bus in mexico
I kinda like it too. And my little boys love it ;-)
