Being able to communicate with the locals. Our Spanish is growing, but impatience is something we experience, and occassionally we get dismissed.
Also having my own wheels to get around, and run errands. Seeking boat parts, food, and just waiting on buses is trying at times. The exhaust smog here is horrendous.
I miss nothing from the house. I actually enjoy the fact I am no longer tied to it. I owned a muffler shop before we left. I miss having access to all the tools. I did turn my trailer into a wood working shop at the marina though & I do have a 5ft. X 10ft. workshop on the boat. It could be worse
