An elderly man in Mexico spends 10 years living in his car

When we live our life with an appreciation of blessings and their meanings, we connect with the underlying field of unlimited opportunities.
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need. Just thank God for that cosy room you sleeps in everyday.
For 83-year-old Oscar Almaguer, life isn't so much the open road as a parking space.  Almaguer lives in his car - and has done so since he and his wife divorced 10 years ago.
His 1967 Volkswagen Beetle spends most of its time in Apodaca on the borders of Monterrey in Mexico
Almaguer keeps his belongings in the trunk (booth), including a bucket of water for washing, some petrol and a pair of shoes. Cutlery and a plastic cup are stored in the ceiling, while a salt-shaker, a bottle of hot sauce and a container of coffee is kept in the door.
But despite all this, the car still works - more or less. The wheels and seats are from another Volkswagen model.  Instead of a gear-stick Almaguer uses a plastic bathroom pipe.
And the engine, which comes from a modern VW Sedan, is just about in decent condition - although Almaguer has to start it by short-circuiting two wires under the bonnet.
Be grateful!
