Oh My God I Live With Dos Tortas

Olga – “Remember the time you did that juice fast and you wanted me to do it with you?? Hahaha!”

Living with Olga has been a blessing. When we suddenly lost our previous living arrangement, she stepped in to offer us a place to stay. We didn’t know each other well, but with the connection of a mutual friend, we gave it a go.

Olga is an accomplished businesswoman in Bacalar. She owns a thriving laundromat along the Costera. Her campground/hostel Jardin de Venus (Venus’s Garden) is always teaming with backpackers from around the world.

Lisa is definitely the glue. She is way more fun and entertaining than I am. A huge perk for us has been speaking Spanish at home. Our speaking and ability to hear has definitely improved.

Lisa and Olga.

Lisa – Olga’s been a great source of information and connection for us, from living in Bacalar to building our house. Small town Mexico is so much about who you know, and with knowing Olga, we’re in!

Olga – You both are very respectful of privacy and considerate of my space. We will always be friends and it’s nice to have people I trust.

Thank you Olga. We rented a room and made a friend. DOS TORTAS

    You are getting there…learning all the wonderful lessons along the way, making friends and enjoying the moments as you go. It seems we all want the moments to go faster, and then I think, “oh, well, maybe not!”

        Wonderful! I hope to stay at Jardin de Venus the next time I am in your area. Sounds lovely, and what a treasure to have Olga as a friend.
