Re: working remotely in Mexico
I'm an accidental immigrant who has worked remotely from Mexico for 21 years. "Gringoization" requires consent. When I lived in San Miguel, it was foreigners who opposed a Starbucks opening on the historic town square; Mexican teenagers and young adults wanted to hang out there in order to be "cool," so the franchise was granted. When the US invaded Iraq, Americans boycotted American products but Mexicans couldn't give up their Coke. Ad infinitum. This is a simplification of the other side of the story. If only La Manz were still a charming little fishing village instead of a year-round tourist destination, but those days are over.
