Lake Patzcuaro Activities
Friends without Borders
Friends without Borders (FWB) is an informal group of expats who meet monthly for fellowship, conversation, and to exchange information. While we are primarily foreigners, some members are Mexican--often spouses or partners of expats in the group. The bulk of our group is from North America--either the USA or Canada--however other nationalities are represented as well. The common denominator is that our meetings are almost completely in English, though often with a sprinkling of Spanish. Anyone is welcome to visit (even if you are only in town briefly) or to start attending on a regular basis.
Our regular meeting is held at the restaurant/bar at Club Campestre, a golf club in Morelia. We meet the second Wednesday of each month. The meetings begin at 3:00 pm and usually go until 5:00 pm. Weather permitting (almost always), we sit at tables on the outdoor terrace facing the beautiful golf course. FWB members and guests are each responsible for their own bills. Soft drinks, coffee, cocktails and food are all available at reasonable prices. Casual dress is appropriate—this is not a fancy or stuffy country club setting. There is no agenda—attendees just chat about what is of interest to them at the moment. From time to time, some of us have bocce ball tournaments before or during the meeting, and sometimes we organize luncheons or other events for the members. Members also utilize the group to meet people with common interests—and people from FWB are involved in bridge groups, book clubs, and other social activities.
Club de Golf Campestre Morelia is located at Avenida del Campestre No.1540. This is just a few blocks from the large shopping center at Las Americas, which you may know as the home to large Liverpool and Sears stores. The street that runs by the Las Americas center becomes Avenida del Campestre once it crosses Camelinas. The restaurant/club house is about 8 or 9 blocks down that street. It does not have any identifying sign on the street , however it is easy to find (skip the large fancy driveway with the big Club Campestre sign which is not where you want to go). There is a long (several blocks) stucco wall on the right side of the street, and when you come to an opening in that wall, turn into the parking area and you are there. At the guard house at the gate into the club, just sign in and indicate that you are going to the restaurant (which is always open to the public). Visit the Club Campestre web site to see an excellent map showing the location: http://www.campestremorelia.com -- go to the tab for El Club.
The Morelia/Patzcuaro Reading Group
The Morelia/Patzcuaro Reading Group will meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Meetings will be at a member's home and occasionally at a restaurant or meeting room. It's not necessary to come to every meeting, and even if you don't finish a book, considering coming and sharing in the conversation.
All of the books are available from Amazon, Kindle,
Audible.com or dowloaded free at a
USA Public Library.

Bring a friend and make new ones. Happy reading!
