We are collecting and documenting the largest body of oral histories ever gathered from foreigners living in Mexico. Expats speak out about love, survival, immigration, culture, community and the challenges and joys of cross-border life. We still have thousands of stories we need to record. Contact us if you want to join our volunteer story team to help out.
