No joke. And Spencer is too. I took two days off work to extend our move down here into a four day weekend, and was back online the day after we arrived. As much as it feels like an incredible privilege to travel around Mexico for the next year, this is not a vacation. I'm working the same hours as I did when we lived in Colorado (maybe a few more, actually) and am strangely much busier now than I was a few weeks ago. Since Spencer is also (mostly) working from a remote spot too, we're trying to get creative with our office space and are always looking for new places around town where the wifi is quick enough to get our work done. Here's my home office!
We've also found that the Cafe Santa Ana at the library is a great place (when the guitar/flute duet take a day off). To start the day we like to go to Cafe Oso Azul. The owner is this Danish expat who partnered up with a friend to start a coffee distribution company in Mexico a few years ago. Now he runs this cafe in San Miguel and it's really quiet, with good food, and fast internet - three important factors for working remotely.
We've really settled into the fact that we both probably knew before making the trip to Mexico - because we are working, we are 100% dependent on internet speeds. We have had to rule out a few destinations because we learned that the internet speeds weren't fast enough to run meetings, share screens and video, all the stuff that is necessary. But currently, the internet in San Miguel is generally faster than the internet at our old house in Boulder. So that's encouraging.
