It is official now. I'm a Residente Permanente in Mexico. I don't have to pay a fee or go through the procedures to renew a visa every year, or prove that I have enough money to live here, or prove that I haven't been out of Mexico more than a certain number of days in the last five years. My home has been in Mexico for several years and it is very satisfying to know that I have been given the right by this country to come and go as I want and I guess as long as I don't cause any problem I can remain a Residente Permanente.
There is one problem. The terrible photo on the card. The photo I had taken, while it wasn't wonderful, it wasn't this bad. I don't know what they did to it but I think I'm stuck with it for a long time. Well, like Permanente.
