LOS ARCOS VISTOS DE MISMALOYA

With the car windows rolled up and the AC on, if the days are cloudy and grey, it looks like winter outside.  Temperatures drop to the low 80´s on these kinds of days and rise to the low 90´s when the sun is out.

Humidity is in the 70´s and the water in the bay at 82 degrees is perfect for long swims.  The medusas, which are the third and last stage of the life cycle of jellyfish, have been visiting for the past few weeks.


HERMOSAS MEDUSAS


I´ve bumped up against several of the opaque, gelatinous creatures in the bay,  but wasn´t stung.  As a friend of mine and I swam quickly away from a cluster of medusas, we wondered if a horror movie had been made about them.

On my way to the clinic on Thursday, I drove up Allende street,  which climbs up from centro and then down to the libramiento.  This back road in and out of town is called it the “tunnel road”  because it goes through two tunnels. 

Half-way down  the hill on Allende appeared the wonderful and unexpected sight of large group of pigs and piglets on the side of the cobbled road.  They were oinking and squealing and wiggling their tails as they rooted through the grass and brush and some trash.  There were no humans in sight.

COLONIA LOPEZ MATEOS:

That same day, a dog trying to cross the busy libramiento was hit and killed under the PEACEAnimals banner that gave notice of a free clinic three blocks away.  The dog´s body was still there Friday morning.  A sign had been posted next to it in Spanish saying “This is what can happen when you don´t sterilize your dog.”

ADOPTIONS:  As I walked our three rescue dogs on the isla Cuale, I passed a boy who looked about eight-years old squatting on the grass with one of the island´s gardeners.  On my way back to that same location near the swinging wooden bridge the was holding a black plastic vegetable crate with a top.  Inside the crate was a long-haired black and white female kitten.  It was one of several that Soraya nd her sister Almendra of Puro Gato had caught on the island, taken to a clinic for sterilization and returned where they were found.  The boy was adorable and said his parents had told him he could adopt a kitten and where to go to find one.  With all of its mango and papelillo trees, the island is the coolest place I´ve found for dog walking.
