Are there any expats now living in Mexico who also lived in the Philippines, at one time? Or vice versa.

Great! If I'm in this area long enough, Queretero is number one on my list of places to see. I'm looking for insights and experiences to compare the PI and Mexico.
I've survived my first move out of my native land and now it's not so scary, anymore. Looking for more adventure and considering the PI.
Cebu is one of the two places I am researching. Cost of living, quality of life, temperatures, basically, any comparisons to Mexico would be helpful.
thanks

It looks like Olongapo is a real city now .... not like the 'dirty little Mexican town' it used to be in the early '60's. I was there for 3-4 months with Vietnam operations. All I remember was the ocean was beautiful and it was hot as hell.

The work day was 7-1pm (normally 8-4pm) ... you couldn't be out in the sun.

Hi Monty, if you are ever in Querétaro just drop me a line, I would be happy to speak with you. Actually my wife and I are hoping to move to the Philippines - Cebu - in a few years so that she can learn a little more about that part of my culture (my other half is American).

I spent a fair amount of time around Manila in the late '90's on business but there had been a person posting this site"Cebucat" that had lived for about 15 years in Cebu. Not sure that I've seen him post recently.

Thanks Q and will do. I'm going to San Diego next week, looking for a place in or around Rosarito. An interim move before making the leap to the PI.
The area around Cebu and the area around Manila are #1 and #2 on my list of places to check out.

Thanks. I have read all the posts in all the expat forums, I've probably come across him. I've gotten about as much information from those who are there, that I can squeeze out of them.
Just fishing for some perspectives from people who have lived in both places.
