From the Editor: December 19, 2023

It's nearly Christmas, then we have year-end festivities and a new slate to begin 2024. I am so excited about how far Vallarta Mirror has come in just a few weeks. Thanks to everyone who has written with positive and not-so-positive comments; it's all good! We will continue to...

Bells for Guadalupe and our Posada

Saturday There are only three more days to celebrate Guadalupe, the Patron Saint of Mexico. More than 300 processions are participating during this year's 12 days of festivities. For me, the best night in the Main Square is December 11, around 11 pm, when everybody sings 'Las Mañanitas' to the Virgin....

Fiscal Balance

Saturday I spent hours at SAT yesterday, getting my RFC updated. I had an assistant do all the preparatory work, and I showed up to do the waiting, which is an art form in Mexico. It was only a couple of hours, but sitting quietly with dozens of others was...

The Bells! The Bells!

Good Morning From Here Recapped: November 25 to December 1, 2023 Saturday I imagine our tourists who landed last week in our soggy, hotter-than-blazes weather are scrambling through their suitcases, trying to find their socks and fluffy sweaters to ward off the sudden cold snap.

Look for "Couple of Clowns" and enjoy. La Catrina Cantina was hopping last night with birthday parties, regulars dancing,...

Vibrant Vices: My Week, November 12-16

With three (!) show dates for The Pleasant Uprising during this writing period, it's been a whirlwind week for me here in this sunny city by the sea.  I could way overshoot my word count if I even attempted to recount every stop along the road to this week's edition...

From Here: November 14-17

Welcome to the first episode of From Here in our new format. It will be written every day, then the accumulation of a week's-worth of ramblings will be collected, encapsulated, and released in one long column every Friday. In my first week of editor-ship, Vallarta Mirror lost a couple of advertisers and...

From Here: November 7-10

It has been an extraordinary week with my birthday celebrations running into overtime and formally becoming editor of this paper, which from here on in will be called Vallarta Mirror. I have been busy becoming older and adjusting yet another hat for my head. I am so happy! Very...
