David Greenstein will present “The Innocence Project, Wrongly Convicted” at the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic, Sunday, May 29, 10:30 a.m.
Frightening and fascinating. Real stories of real people who have been freed by The Innocence Project, including some in Mexico.
What happens when an innocent person is convicted and all avenues of appeal have been closed? The Innocence Project is not part of the legal system. It is private and has had freed over 1,000 people, some off Death Row. One should understand that innocent is not the same as “not guilty.”
Greenstein has given this talk to well over 10,000 people during nine years of Enrichment Lectures on Royal Caribbean cruises.

Walk the course
Golfer Lee Steele exhorts both men and women golfers to join in a group of “hackers who play for fun” at the Chula Vista Country Club in San Antonio Tlayacapan. Presently, some 12 to 20 players (Americans, Brits, Canadians, Germans and Mexicans) play 18 holes every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, teeing off at 8:20 a.m.
He notes: “The Chula Vista course is very hilly. The highest point on the course (the seventh green) is seven stories above the lowest point (the first tee). Walking only (no golf carts allowed), but we do have caddies. The course has narrow fairways with very tall trees lining each fairway. Accuracy off the tee is much more important than distance. Par is 62 (no Par 5s) for 18 holes. Two of the Par 3s are a little over 200 yards.
“Daily rate is 450 pesos Monday to Friday and 600 pesos Saturday and Sunday. The caddy fee (paid directly to the caddie) is 250 Pesos (including tip) for 18 holes.”
Membership costs 16,800 pesos per year with unlimited play and no monthly dues. They also offer a six-month membership.
