La Manzanilla Memo - January 21, 2012

Security Demands

Carlos Ramirez, President of our municipality of La Huerta, made a special appearance in La Manzanilla to respond to residents´concerns about crime in the village. An estimated 300 to 400 locals and expats, about a 50/50 mix, filled the plaza for the January 12 evening meeting.

Happy Holidays, etc.

Whatever you celebrate – Yule/Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or Bah Humbug! – I hope your obligations don’t exceed your stamina and you are coping well with the ubiquitous merriment.

Galeria season kicks off

La Manzanilla’s favorite out-of-town artist, Efren Gonzalez opened the Galeria’s Meet the Artist series with a packed house on December 2. His work, as always, was as delightful to view as he and his beautiful wife Reina were to chat with, and he does excel at the art of meet-and-greet.

Full speed ahead!

Despite the number of roads that are still trashed a month and a half after the Jova-ian deluge, La Manzanillans from all ends of town have managed to make their way to main street to party.  And there’s plenty going on.

It’s Show Time!

The Galeria has posted this year’s artist line-up.  Dates for annual fundraisers have been set. There’s talk of turkey dinner and the holiday tree fiesta.  The bookstore is open seven days a week, and it’s rodeo season.  Not that you’d know it from our feels-like-August temperatures, but The Season seems to be upon us, ready or not.

La Manzanillo Memo - October 28, 2011

Back to business as usual

Except for dozens of trees down and most of our roads getting impassably trashed, La Manzanilla came through Hurricane Jova relatively unscathed compared to other places on the Costalegre.  Once power was restored and clean up was underway, the biggest discussion point became not how we weathered the storm, but when the Manzanillo airport would open.
