Les débuts du blog en anglais

Quand j'ai débuté le blog j'écrivais mes articles en anglais. J'ai pris conscience avec le temps que mon audience est principalement française et qu'il était donc plus pertinent que j'abandonne la langue de Shakespeare au profit de celle de Victor Hugo. Néanmoins, je n'ai pas eu le cœur d'effacer les débuts du blog: les voici donc ici.

Today, I decided to talk to you about RUNNING and I am going to try to figure out how Monterrey, N.L. turned me into a runner...

I am definitely not the type of person on who we would have bet that I am going to become a regular runner. Do you remember your training cla...

Two weeks ago, I shared with you a post about the “politically correct” between France and Mexico. Few days later, one of my cousin told me: “That would be interesting to also have Andrés’ point of view.” Andrés is my husband, and more precisely, the reason why I am li...

In Mexico, we don’t say NO

So, what do we say (if it’s no!)??? Nothing, or we say yes, even if it’s no. I know, it can sound weird. But saying no in Mexico can easily be perceived as an offense, a lack of respect. It’s rude. In France, it is the opposite. If someone doe...

It makes now one year that I went back to Mexico after having previously studied there for one semester. Many of you have wondered: “why deciding to live in Mexico?” and until now, I never gave that much details on the blog. I was just starting to write articles and I...

For discretion purposes, I won’t mention any companies’ name in this article.

After almost a year living in Mexico, I experimented that there’s a gap between job interviews in France and in Mexico, and still today it is something very difficult for me. I share here some...

Life is made of thousands of paths and of thousands of choices. Everytime that you take a new direction, that you chose, a new network of paths is created. Sometimes you look back and you ask to yourself: “What if I had chosen another direction? What would have happene...

This article is based on my own experience and cannot be generalized.

Human Resources policies are different across the globe and variate a lot according to cultures. By leaving France to live in Mexico with my better half, I experienced it and unfortunately not for the...

Lately, I wrote an article about how it is so different to be a woman in France compare to be a woman in Mexico. I talked a bit of style, stating that the fashion conception is distinctive between both countries and this is what naturally gave me the idea of an article...

After 17 months in Mexico, I have had to experience that being a woman in France is considerably different than being a woman in Mexico. Changing of country always confronters you to cultural differences, but I was not measuring how much gender differences could be so...

April 24, 2017

As many of you must know, yesterday was the first turn of the French Presidential elections. As a French citizen and to be able to vote despite the fact that I am living in Mexico, I followed the procedure to register me before the end of 2016 on the electoral lists of...

A propos

Tout a commencé par un semestre d’étude…cela s’est terminé en déménagement. Moi c’est Hélène, et je me suis installée au Mexique en Juillet 2016, époque à laquelle j’ai débuté le blog. A French in Mexico, c’est l’histoire d’une française (moi) qui vit au Mexique et qui écrit plein de choses sur le voyage et la vie à l’étranger. Je partage ma découverte du pays et de sa culture, mais aussi mon expérience sur la vie d’expatriée, sa richesse, ses challenges et ses difficultés.

Plus d’informations sur mon parcours, ainsi que mes coordonnées de contact, sont disponibles dans la rubrique « A propos ». Bonne lecture à tous!
