Who is this güera?

– Scroll down for the English version of this page! –

Me llamo Lynn, pero la mayoría de los mexicanos me dice Güera porque tengo piel güera, cabello güero, y ojos de color (azul-verde).  Me interesan bastantes cosas de la vida, pero soy experta en muy pocas.  Soy estudiante de por vida a quien le gustan las clases de Zumba®, el fút, y la jardinería.

Viví casi 4 años en barrios no afluentes de México (nunca he ido a Cancún, Los Cabos, Acapulco, etc.), y parte de ese tiempo fue dedicado al proceso de los papeles de mi esposo para que pudiera ser residente permanente legal de EUA (en donde ya estamos viviendo).  Algún día de estos, queremos regresar para establecer un pequeño rancho allá en México.  Estoy empezando a publicar más en español, pero mientras tanto si quiere leer más en inglés sobre cómo comenzó mi amor por México, haga clic aquí y aquí.    Aguanto mucho criticismo de otras personas, pero no dejo que me moleste demasiado.  Estoy muy contenta con lo que me ha presentado  la vida (porque muchas veces el viaje es más interesante que el destino), y espero con muchas ganas cada momento que sucederá.

Este blog me servirá como manera de expresar mi creatividad mientras encuentro el tiempo y el valor para escribir un libro.  Echéle un vistazo a mi lista continua de libros infantiles favoritos, comente en cualquier cosa, y disfrute su día.  Diviértase leyendo mi blog, y sígame en el Twitter: @lynnbalde

Note: “La Güera Pecosa” is pronounced a bit like “la GWAY-rah pay-CO-sah.”  My name is Lynn, but most people from Mexico call me Güera because I am light-skinned with reddish blonde hair and blue-green eyes (ojos de color).  I’m a jack of many trades… and master of very few.  I’m a lifelong learner who’s into Zumba® classes, soccer, gardening, architecture, and fashion.

I lived in poor parts of Mexico for nearly four years (never been to Cancún, Cabo, Acapulco, etc.), part of that time devoted to processing my husband’s paperwork to become a legal permanent resident of the U.S. (where we are now living).  We plan to go back and establish a nice little ranch in Mexico someday soon.  Click here and here to read more about how my love of Mexico began.  I take a lot of criticism, and I’m okay with that.  I am very happy with the roads down which life has led me (because the journey is often more interesting than the destination), and I am thrilled for each moment that awaits me.

This blog will serve as a creative outlet for me while I scrounge up the time and nerve to write a book.  Browse my ongoing list of favorite children’s books, comment on anything, and enjoy your day.  Have fun reading my blog, and follow me on Twitter: @lynnbalde

  1. I was in Acapulco quite a few years ago. I saw them dive as I was in the restaurant across the way. It was there I para sailed over the bay next to the beach. My blog has it and how I thought guro meant brave. Give it a read I think you find it interesting. I took my wife and children to Mexico City when they were young. Great experience. Good luck with your husbands papers. I wish you well. Barry

  2. Thanks for the follow over on my blog. I love your stories here. My husband and I will be going to the Cancun area at the end of November, and I can’t wait to be back in Mexico.

    • I had thought I’d already followed yours previously when you first commented, lol, but somehow I missed it. Glad to have your input, and will look forward to Mexico updates from you in a few months ;)
