The Widds are a typical American couple who retired well on a small pension and social security by moving from California, USA to Rosarito, Mexico. They've started a non-profit organization feeding the orphans of Rosarito. To donate a $14 box of chicken to a needy orphanage go to www.heartsofbaja.com.
In this interview we will check out the Widd's million dollar home, which they purchased for 10% of that value, learn about the community safety in Rosarito, their social life and crossing the border.
