Margarita Wednesdays: Making a New Life by the Mexican Sea

Irreverent, blatantly honest and at times touching, MARGARITA WEDNESDAYS: Making a New Life by the Mexican Sea is the story of Deborah Rodriguez’s intimate and often hilarious journey of self-discovery and renewal after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. She first lands in California where she feels like a misfit and teeters on the edge of a nervous breakdown while suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

From being told to commune with glowworms to fishing with a weed-smoking Indian on a reservation and working out with strippers, at the age of fifty Rodriguez decides to focus for the first time on who she really is and who, and where, she’s meant to be. She packs her life into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico. There she learns Spanish, finds new friends, new love and new family. She opens Tippy Toes, an overnight salon sensation, and in the magic of Mexico, she builds the life she never knew was possible --- a life on her own terms.
