    The last InterNations event was just great: I had some very nice chats with fellow expats (even Canadians like me) in Mexico City.

Living in Aguascalientes

To arrive in Aguascalientes is to arrive in the very heart of Mexico, both geographically and culturally. This is no tourist-ridden beach resort, or overpopulated metropolis. Indeed, Aguascalientes is known as one of the cleanest and safest cities in Mexico, offering all the charm of its colonial architecture and surrounding mountains, with the convenience of its central location and modern amenities. An average day for an expat in Aguascalientes may begin with a typical Mexican breakfast of tortillas with beans or eggs, perhaps alongside a freshly-picked guava from the garden. Driving through the city center, you will pass some of the most unique architecture in Mexico, including the extraordinary Baroque façade of Guadalupe Church, which was built during colonial times. Lunchtime may be spent wandering through the city's art museum, which can be found in a Classical-style building designed by architect Refugio Reyes. In the evening, a brisk walk through one of the city’s many parks will help you work off all those fried tacos, before watching the sun set behind the eerily beautiful Cerro del Muerto, a mountain which lies in the shape of a sleeping man.

Moving to Aguascalientes

Aguascalientes is a city of many reputations. Literally translated as “hot waters” after the abundance of natural hot springs around the countryside; it has an obvious connection with luxury and relaxation. Indeed, its state motto is “Bona Terra, Bona Gens, Agua Clara, Clarum Coelum”, meaning “Good Earth, Good People, Clear Water, Clear Sky.” The slightly less straightforward nickname “The Perforated City” refers to the pre-Hispanic labyrinth of tunnels which run underneath it, a constant reminder of the long and rich history of this area. But this does not mean that the local community is a closed book. Residents of Aguascalientes are well used to visitors from other Mexican states and foreign countries, due to the enduring popularity of the San Marcos Fair. Held in and around Aguascalientes for almost 200 years, the fair is thought to attract around seven million visitors, who come to buy and sell livestock and other goods, attend concerts and theatres and to take part in traditional activities such as bull fighting and cock fighting.

Working in Aguascalientes

Aguascalientes has always been an important point of trade for North and South Americans, and it continues to capitalize on its location and natural resources to expand the local industries.

    With InterNations, we had the chance to find a good bi-lingual school for our children in Mexico. They are gonna grow up as true 'third-culture kids'!
