Expat Dealing with Being Referred to as “La Gringa”

9 Aug

From the Matador Network, is a story of an expat in Mexico and her encounters with being called  “La Gringa” by the neighbors.  When you move to a new country, it’s possible to feel as if you’ll never be fully integrated into the culture.

Have any expats been called this that they’ve encountered? And have any expats felt that they have become 100% integrated into their neighborhood, or will there always be that 10% (or more)?
