I'm sure your German will quickly come back to you. I moved to Mexico by myself in the middle of a pandemic at the age of 71. As I've written in some of my articles, everyone thinks I'm crazy. The only time I got panicky about it was when I thought I would have to rehome my cat, but I solved that problem. I'm having fun learning Spanish. I'm surprised at how many of the locals speak English. It's interesting when I get an Uber driver that doesn't. I've been wondering if some of my fear brain cells have died. I own even less than you. It's very liberating.
