|“LINDO MAR” BEACH|
A fisherman paddles in on a yellow kayak with his fresh catch daily. Three or four pelicans and at least one frigate bird always accompany him to the beach.
The smiling, tanned man in the wonderful weather-beaten straw hat guts fish, shucks oysters and throws unwanted scraps to pelicans in the water and on the beach. The black frigates, hovering in the air above the fisherman, catch the innards tossed up to them. They are called “tijeras” here (“scissors”) because of their split tail feathers.
December 12 was the last day of the Virgin of Guadalupe processions. They began
at 5:30 in the morning with banging drums and the singing of la Guadalupana. The processions, music and dancing lasted until late evening.
Many of us will miss the collection of great street food stands and the very ebullient atmosphere of “Old México.”
|“LINDA” RESCATADA Y NECESITA HOGAR|
Cielo and Valeria, two young girls living in my neighborhood, brought the dog to me on Friday afternoon. They were calling her “Linda,” because the dog is so pretty. After being tested negative for all diseases, she is now being boarded at LADRA. If you can donate for Linda´s tests and vaccines, please take funds to Dr. Peña. Melchor Ocampo 109-9. Tel: 224-0319
