|EX-PRESIDENCIA (FORMER CITY HALL)|
Before the Revolution of 1910, most of the land in Mexico was owned by the elite ruling class. After the revolution, the policy of land distribution was initiated. In 1917, the Constitution´s land reform measures restored land that had been taken from communities, made land grants to villages and divided up large tracts of land called "latifundidios." The land was given to mostly the peasant class and used communally. The distributed agricultural or empty land is called "ejido," and the practice of creating ejido land continued to the end of the 1930´s. Limited title to work and use the land was given, but did not allow for the sale of ejido land nor for it to be used as collateral. This changed in 1992, when an amendment to the Constitution made it legal for communities and individuals to sell ejido land or to put it up as collateral for loans.
Adjacent to the former city hall, where the most bells are on display, is the Plaza de Armas. The plaza (all plazas in front of city halls are named "Plaza de Armas") is across the street from the malecón and in front of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

VALLE DORADO ("Golden Valley") is located about 40 minutes south of centro Vallarta, just a few minutes northeast of Nuevo Vallarta in the state of Nayarit. It is a colonia filled mostly with one-story cement houses and has the most most pockmarked roads I´ve ever seen. Amanda Frederick Jimenez, a vet tech and her husband Fernando, a chef at Secrets resort, donated their home and also a couple of great meals. Amanda said that on the first day, someone who wanted to be sure of a space for his pets, rang her doorbell at 6 AM.
|VALLE DORADO CLINIC|
STERILIZATIONS AT VALLE DORADO CLINIC - SEPTEMBER 9-12:
Female dogs: 65; Male dogs: 23; Female cats: 43; Male cats: 30
This is a record number for PEACEAnimals, and is the result of not only the great need in this colonia but also because we have a third vet, Dr. Jimena, on duty while Paulina Stettner is on leave of absence. Amanda, who offered her home for the clinic, was able to help as a vet tech.
