Adios Neighbor

In the year we’ve been in our little house we’ve become friendly with our next door neighbors. Turns out they have the same ambition as us. They are becoming ex-pats in Mexico. The difference is they sold they’re house in less than a week, then were scrambling to sell, store, or donate their lifelong belongings within a month. Also, their dog, Ralph, did not outlive their “plan” and that’s why we’re in a cold van and they’re in a warm cabana down in San Miguel Allende.


They couldn’t store these bikes and were ready to donate them. I said, “Donate them to me. I’ll sell them for you.”  These bikes were low milage Bianchis. Highly desirable come spring in bike-friendly Portland. “I’ll sell them in a week.” I sold them in a day and his money was in his Paypal account the next day.

Mi amigo Miguel asked, “What’s your normal Craigslist commission? In response, “For you my friend, a couple rounds in the local cantina when we visit.

They were back in Portland for a week to retrieve their car before a road trip across the border. As promised, they bought us a couple beers and tacos from the “taco lab” up on Alberta. Not quite Mexico… so we’re holding out for that local cantina in San Miguel.

RIDE ON amigos!!
