Magic Made in México by Joanna van der Gracht de Rosado

As a naïve tour guide from Canada, Joanna van der Gracht met—and married—native Yucateco Jorge Rosado 35 years-ago, and together they built a successful business and made a life in México. An “insider” with an outsider’s perspective she gives a wonderful portrait of both the traditional and historical background of México and the interplay between the new “international” culture and the traditional [Mexican] way. As Barbara Bode wrote, “…in an odd way, this is a ‘How-to’ book…. If ever there were a battle cry, a leadership cheer for expats, this is it . . .Adapt!”

Anyone needing to adapt, or even adjust, to life in México – which definitely includes those planning only a limited stay -- will find their experience greatly enhanced from a reading of Magic Made in Mexico.

"… a wise and candid guide for those of us who are following our own dream of a place of our own in México… With sweetness but not sugar-coating, van der Gracht de Rosado describes the challenges along with the rewards of this beautiful, complicated place."
