Young teen-age boys enthusiastically throw rocks up into the mango trees on the isla Cuale and are occasionally successful in knocking down some fruit. Fathers with their families use long bamboo poles to bring it down. Squirrels nibble on the ripe fruit, which then falls on the ground and provides bees with something sweet. At the Biblioteca los Mangos, where there is not much of a squirrel population, the fragrant fruit falls down onto the grass when ripe and is quickly collected. It is time of the mangos here in Mexico. We see it being used for chutney, soup, pickles, pies, yoghurt, ice cream, salads, juices, smoothies, aguas frescas, tucked into cheese quesadillas and best of all – alone in mango magnificence.
|ARBOL DE MANGO EN LA ISLA CUALE|
The first recordings of mangos date back to 4,000 B.C. in the writings of monks in India and Southeast Asia. The fragrant fruit arrived in Mexico via the Philippines in the 17th century. Providing the required tropical or semi-tropical environment, Mexico is now the number one exporter of mangos in the world.
|ARBOL DE MANGO EN CENTRO|
India is the number one producer of mangos and in part because its 1.3 billion population consumes almost all of its mangos, this fruit has the top spot for the most eaten fruit in the world.
Palmar de Aramara is a quiet, clean colonia just a few blocks southeast of Walmart and Sam´s club. It has a large, green park a couple of blocks away from the home of Candace Shaw, who generously donated her home as a location for this clinic. It was in the pretty park that her beautiful Weimar, “Sterling,” was poisoned several months ago.
|PALMAR DE ARAMARA|
On Wednesday, which is usually our slowest day, 31 animals were spayed and neutered at the Palmar de Aramara. When I arrived at the clinic a little after nine on Thursday morning, 38 cats and dogs had already been registered.

A young man came with his two Xolos, a 7-year old female and a 4-year old male. After a few years of breeding them, he can no longer keep his pets. Please contact Candace Shaw via FB if interested. Almendra brought in some kittens from Puro Gato for sterilization, and immediately adopted the young Russian Blue male cat that Shannon Beston had brought in from the isla Cuale. Mateo Jorge arrived with pretty little “Pickles,”

“Solo Vino” (which can mean either “only wine” or “came alone”) came alone to Robbin Richardson´s doorstep in centro. The little black male Terrier or Schnauzer mix flew home with Robbin to North Carolina on May 13th, two days before the heat embargo was put in place by the airlines. No more pets flying in cargo until November.
