Enjoying Xalapa, “The City of Flowers”

Jalapa- Xalapa a confused Exploration I pulled aside the curb and let the traffic speed past wondering if I’d ever been on a darker street. Every few minutes, a new pack of traffic hurried past, then nothing for several minutes. I didn’t have a city map and wouldn’t get directions along this unknown, deserted street. The raindrops bubblin...

The Evolution of Retirement Communities

What is a Retirement Community?
