Yuclife is a helping hand in a foreign country. 
We have people.
Good people, good neighbors who are willing to help.

Yuclife is a community.
Yuclife started when I ran into Roger at the hardware store.
He was laughing at my Spanish.

Yuclife is a 4th of July barbeque with friends.

Yuclife knows people who can help you.
The problems are all the same here.
Sometimes the problems are Greedy Ex-pats who see you as their next paycheck.
There is a predatory class of Ex-pat here who just wants your money.
We aren't that type of ex-pat.

Ask around. 
The Yuclife seal of approval is not for sale.
Yuclife will hook you up with people who charge a fair price for their services. 
If there is a problem with someone we referred you to that's what the comments section is for.
Or give me a call  at 999-100-75-98.
Day or night.
Yuclife does not sleep when there is work to do.
Join our tribe.

mexican hotties

the mall up the street is filled with perfect women 
searching for the perfect plastic assesory
i frequently use the air-conditioning there
after an hour of walking in the sun
i see hottie whiplash all the time
they glance at me like you do at a traffic accident
frequently giggling, if a group
but then they over-correct
snapping their necks looking as far away from me as possible if i smile
i get it
but i guess that's a hidden cost of hottie-dom
i'm just smiling
hottie, don't hurt yourself
the neck brace place wants to hire me

A wonderful friend is renting me a walled compound. It's like I am a Kennedy or something, 
Three buildings, Five=seven years of growing landscape. 
I promised her a beautiful  garden, but first I need to identify the plants and trees so I don't kill anything cool.One of the three buildings will be a special school for the things that they do not teach you in "regular" schools. Filling the gaps. Motivating the listless. One  educator I spoke to referred to her afternoon class as a "DEN OF DIS-INTEREST." To be fair these kids come from a full day of intense schooling in their career fields and English is just something that makes you a more valuable commodity to future employers. Their parents are INSISITING that they take English. If this is the case, why can't we do HIGH INTEREST Engliish classes. is that the name? High Interest English, incorporated?
I spent the first few nights with no electricity .
more later

   This young fellow, Brian is the Grandson of a friend of MAYAN with a birthday who thought chess at a Cenote sounded like a fun day. He was right. He's joining the Navy in a few months. He is a tricky opponent with a very unorthodox game. There is a racoon behind him eating potato chips from some people hands. Another person at the next table said they seemed to enjoy Gummy bears too. Soon we might need to raise money for these victims of Diabetes, The Mangrove Cenote Racoon's with Diabete's Foundation Chess tournament and fundraiser.
