An Insider's Guide to Travel in Mexico

Written by veteran traveller Nathan Segal, An Insider's Guide to Mexico is the result of travelling to Mexico for nine years and having lived in Mexico for three of those years. Here are some of the highlights of the guide:

• How to find affordable travel insurance. My top recommendations are on page 11.

• Need a Mobile Phone? A handy guide on pages 17-19 shows you how to use your existing phone or find one for less than $50 in Mexico.

• Are you planning to drive to Mexico? On pages 7-9 you’ll find out why you need Mexican insurance and why you need to buy it before you go to Mexico. You’ll also learn about the rules of the road and how to drive safely (complete with illustrations).

• Do you want to stay in Mexico for a few weeks or longer? Find out how to get a great apartment or house with the guide on pages 16-17.

• Is a good Internet connection important to you? Make sure the place you’re staying at offers WIFI or a hard-wired connection. If you want to get your own connection, pages 32-33 gives you all the details on the different Internet services available, including different types of aircards to use.

• Want a great digital camera? You’ll learn what to look for on page 20. If you already have a camera, pages 21-23 will show you how to take better photographs.

Hi Everyone, I'm writing this message because I need help. Those you who know me know that the last few years have been very difficult. I've faced some difficult challenges including bullying, financial collapse, couch surfing and homelessness. I obtained social assistance and I thought I was getting better but yesterday I learned I'm now facing a potentially life threatening challenge.

I found out I'm bleeding internally and I need a colonoscopy asap. 

Unfortunately the waiting period in British Columbia is around 4 months. It might be too long.

I'm reaching out for help to shorten this process.

In practical terms a normal Hemoglobin level is between 133-160. I'm at 111. According to my doctor, if it drops as low as 70 I won't have the strength to cross a room and I'll need a blood transfusion.

He told me to eat a lot of iron rich foods but it may not be enough. To make matters worse I live in a vegetarian household and I'm not allowed to cook some of the foods I need to eat. i.e. eggs meat, fish. Since eating out will cost a fortune, I'll need to move.

Some time ago, a man in his twenties was told he might have a rare type of cancer and needed a colonoscopy. Faced with a similar waiting period, he sued the government and was seen within a week. 

If necessary, I'm prepared to do the same thing, but I'm reaching out to all of you in social media to see if any of you know another way.

Thanks for your support.

Having been bullied on and off over the years I've decided to take a stand and speak out against those who have bullied me in the past. In some cases I have named them. The reason for that is simple. If I let bullies get away with their antics and do not expose them, I'm contributing to the problem.
