DREAMING IN GREEN


la costa de la bahía de banderas- al sur de Quimixto - coastline of Banderas Bay south of Quimixto

MEZCALES, tucked away just off highway 200, is a small, quiet inland town 45 minutes north of Vallarta. The clinic took place in front of the plaza at an empty house in a small, rectangular cement room with no windows.  The door was left open for light and air and ecovery tables were set up just outside on the sidewalk.  The name of the street for the clinic, "Netzahualcoytl," was a name I didn´t recognize,  so Googled it. 

The boy born to a king on April 28, 1402 was given the name "Ixtlilxochitl," meaning "strong feline" in nahuatl.  As an adolescent, he was renamed Netzahualcoytl, translated as "starving coyote" or "wolf," because of his difficult and dangerous years.  Known as "the poet and urbanist king," his long reign (1429-1472) over the city-state of Texcoco in southern Mexico was one of preserving and creating beauty.    Netzahualcoytl is actually a familiar face - it´s on the Mexican 100 peso note, with a poem he may or may not have composed:  

"I love the singing of the cenzontle, bird of the four hundred voices.  I love the color of jade,

and the enervante perfume of flowers,  but what I love most is my brother, 

the man."
                                                                                             

The first pet owners had arrived at 5 AM, and included a charming, middle-age man with deep furrows in his tanned face and beautiful white teeth.  He had brought a black and white street dog with a long, wavy tail that he had named "Princesa," and said a group of neighbors was feeding her. He was given two small bags of dog food and a bright pink PEACEAnimals collar/leash.

The friendly man said he owned a male dog, but as it wasn´t running loose, didn´t want to neuter him .because it would be "like cutting off its leg or ear."  Neutering, especially when a dog is less than a year old, helps prevent canine prostate problems. For a dog on the street, it prevents TVT (transmissible venereal tumor),  and of course pregnancies.

There were plenty of dogs running loose on the streets in Mezcales. A small, dirty white male Terrier mix that would be very pretty after a bath and grooming,  was at the plaza sniffing about for food.  Opened up one of the small bags of kibble that we give away at all clinics to those who need, and gave it to him.  Neighbors said the little dog is homeless.  He would be easy to find if someone would like to rescue him.

Numbers of cats and dogs sterilized as a result of this gift (two clinics plus 78% of a third)  total 421 animals..

COAPINOLE (EL DEMONIO BLANCO), PUERTO VALLARTA - First arrivals on Wednesday were at 7 AM.

CATS in la Cruz, Nayarit - Afraid feral cats will be poisoned at the local marina, PEACEAnimals sometime-volunteers, Charity Palmatier and Elinore Craig, are trapping them. To date, 9 out of 22 have been relocated to a pineapple field in Sayulita overrun with rats.  Owner very happy.  Charity and Elinore also contributing cat and dog food to the thriving food bank in la Cruz. Some owners abandoning pets because they can´t afford to feed them.




YELLOW POLICE TAPE - Removed on Mexico´s Independence Day,  September 16th.  This is a big holiday, but due to C-19, No charro parade. No city celebration. And a rare mid-day rain.  For the 
first time in months, pedestrians were allowed on the seawall side of the malecón.  Police tape still encircles the small amphitheatre at los arcos and the plaza across the street.  It had been a bad idea to  close off the bay promenade, where there is so much space, fresh air and beauty.  

Finalmente, el 16 de septiembre,  después de meses se quitaron la cinta amarilla en el malecón

todavía la cinta amarilla está alrededor de la plaza y los arcos

MASSAGE, etc,: Spas/massage businesses meeting all government requirements now open.  My favorite is Healing Hands at Pipila # 240 in centro. Nothing fancy.  Small, simple and clean with excellent massage work. 350 pesos for 1 hour.  Open 11-6 -  322 105 2726






OPENING:  The very popular (and with good reason) BONITO KITCHEN - in colonia Emiliano Zapata - next to the Cuale bridge - in November.

CULTURAL CENTER on the Isla Cuale: Offering free classes through December -  sculpture, drawing, painting, guitar, etc. We signed up for beginning guitar.
centro de cultura - isla cuale - puerto vallarta - clases gratuitas hasta enero

CASA OAXACA - Although open since January, I only discovered it walking from the isla Cuale to Winner´s, a block and-a-half away, to buy a guitar.  If one can´t go to Oaxaca, this is as good as it gets here for textiles. The store is spacious and beautiful with wonderful bedspreads, pillow cases, runners, pottery, rugs and attractive furniture.  
Casa Oaxaca - Art & Home Decor- Aquiles Serdán #377 - Col. Emiliano Zapata (322 3651287)


BOCA DE TOMATLÁN:


Boca is bustling early Saturday morning.  The aroma of freshly made corn tortillas drifts through the air as we approach the cement pier.  Across from it is a tamale vendor and a newly painted orange restaurant//bar, "la Casita."
On the pier, mask-less people wait for pangas to take them south to another village, many of them restaurant workers carrying supplies, including the corn tortillas.  

We board "Aleydis," captain Dani´s panga, and motor out of the cove into the Bay of Banderas. Skies are overcast and a strong wind is blowing, sending warm splashes of salt water onto our faces. As we approach Yelapa, dolphins appear and quickly disappear. We stop at the pier to collect two friends of Karla de la Pena´s (Boca Divers), one of whom had moved here the day before from Berlin. On the grainy, sandy beach,
 local women still carry round plastic trays of homemade pies on their heads - coconut, cheese, chocolate and pecan - 35 pesos a slice. Karla plus Dani make five of us, leaving space for distancing.  Traveling along the breathtakingly beautiful, greenest of green coasts for an hour, we pass the cloud factory, where all the puffiest white clouds come from.
cloud factory/fábrica de nubes
  
Pizota

cascada escondida - hidden waterfall

We continue south, even further than Pizota, a tiny village reachable by car during dry season.  A strong breeze carries the fragrance of recently rained on earth and vegetation to the boat. Motoring past a small sandy beach with oversize boulders and swaying palms, a 
surprise of the whitest tumble of a tall, slender waterfall cascading down terraces of grey granite. We beach the panga, climb barefoot up the cool rocky stream and douse ourselves under the falls.

TROPICAL STORMS

 

Restaurante El Volador - Quimixto 


SAN VICENTE, NAYARIT is a 45- minute drive northeast of Vallarta and where we visit two or three times a year. 


The clinic took place in a neighborhood we had never been to before, not far from the town plaza, where skinny dogs roam streets searching for something to eat.

Villas Miramar- San Vicente, Nayarit 

Three devoted animal rescuers contacted Dr. Poli asking for a clinic in the colonia of Villas Miramar in San Vicente -  Professor Eli Remberto Valdez Montoñez, Fernando Eliutt Dominguez Barrera and Mercedez Gómez Santos.  Fernando  has thirteen cats and eight dogs that he found on the streets.  Remberto showed me a tiny, almost blind grey and white kitten he had rescued the day before. 

This is a poor colonia, but even in these very difficult times, the community raised the extra funds (gasoline & driving time) for an outside of Vallarta clinic.  Locals provided an empty cinderblock house as a location and secured volunteers, breakfasts and lunches for the vet team.  They were kind and generous,  and grateful that there would be less suffering for animals in their neighborhood.

STERLIZATIONS IN SAN VICENTE - AUGUST 26-29:  

Female dogs - 54; Female dogs - 17; Female cats - 52; Male cats - 33;  TOTAL  156 ... PLUS  

Pregnancies terminated (abortos) for 1 dog with 3 fetuses and 1 cat with 5 fetuses

 DONATIONS AT SAN VICENTE CLINIC:  1,710 PESOS

The clinic in Villas Miramar, San Vicente, Nayarit was underwritten by the generous donation of $5,000 US from Diane B. Wilsey.   At $1,800 US per 3.5-day clinic, this gift will pay the costs of two clinics plus 78% of a third.

Clínica en San Vicente, Nayarit - otra organizadora - Mercedes Gomez Santos - en playera roja:

COLONIA INFONAVIT, PUERTO VALLARTA - The neighborhood is situated about 15 minutes north east of centro Vallarta, directly in back of MacroPlaza, a very large shopping mall where residents wearing masks are taking their morning and evening walks in the spacious, tree-filled parking lot.  Several blocks east is an empty police station where the clinics always take place.  The streets are full of roaming dogs. 

Clínica en Infonavit - en la caseta de la policía - atrás de un campo cubierto de hierba y una cuadras del río Pitillal
 donde hay muchísmos perros de la calle.  Una negrita sín dueño tiene 15.

A young man said at 6:20 AM he was the third person to be at the clinic for registration.  A friend had just given him a very pregnant brown Pit Bull whose hip bones and spine were visible.  The meek dog,

Perra muy malcuidada  y preñada fué regalada a este joven - Infonavit

now rescued, had been utterly neglected by her owner. Later that morning her pregnancy (13 fetuses) was terminated.  After delivering the 2-cup bags of kibble (I gave two to the new dog owner),  PEACEAnimals coloring books and lasso leashes, I walked across the street to the muddy road that leads to the Pitillal river.  It is high and flowing fast and the trees next to it are tall and old and beautiful.

río Pitillal - Infonavit

But piles of garbage and trash litter the side of the dirt road and there are always barking dogs on the loose. While taking a photo of a cluster of small puppies in the middle of the muddied dirt road, I felt a sudden, sharp pain on my left calf.  The black mama dog with white chest had gotten up from her resting place under a beaten-up white truck and given me a hard bite on my bare leg.  I slowly backed away until she stopped following,  all the while barking and baring her teeth.

La perra mamá tiene 15 cachorros de 2 camadas- todos son callejeros - Infonavit

Neighbors said the mama dog is homeless and has seven more puppies from her previous litter, making fifteen total living on the road  Those that survive will suffer and add to the overpopulation of homeless dogs next to the river.  I gave some bags of kibble and a few leashes to a ten-year old boy who lives nearby, telling him I would pay 50 pesos for each dog he could bring to the clinic.  Situation reported and photos sent to Vallarta shelters and local government agency.  Dr. Diego, head of the city shelter,  Centro de Control y Salud Animal, responded that he would visit the area. 

Esta camada tiene 8 - además 7 mas de la camada pasada para la perra negra - 15 cachorros sin hogares 

STERILIZATIONS AT COLONIA INFONAVIT SEPTEMBER 2-5:  Female dogs - 32; Male cogs - 12;

Female cats - 67; Male cats - 39  TOTAl:  150 PLUS pregnancies terminated (abortos) for

1 dog (the tan Pit Bull) with 13 fetuses; 2 cats with 5 fetuses each= 23 animals not born to suffer


DONATIONS AT INFONAVIT CLINIC:  1,920 PESOS

The clinic at Infonavit was the second one underwritten by the generous donation of $5,000 US from Diane B. Wilsey.   At $1,800 US per 3.5-day clinic, this gift will pay the costs of two clinics plus 78% of a third.

DONATIONS TO PEACEANIMALS:  

Diane B. Wilsey - $5,000 US (San Francisco)

EDUCATION PROGRAMDue to coronavirus, on hold until regular classes resume. 
Examples of some pages of PEACEAnimals educational coloring books given to children at clinics.  Unas páginas de libritos educaciónal para colorear de PEACEAnimals - regalados a los niños en las clínicas.

COVID-19:  Distance Learning:  Classes restarted on August 24th and are being broadcast on national television and radio.   A 2018 survey determined that approximately 11% of Mexico´s population (126 million in 2018) does not have television.  This percentage represents about 14 million people living in rural communities who will have enormous difficulty in providing education for their children.  Clubs and bars have reopened in Vallarta.

A friend from Vallarta visiting London reports very few face masks on display, including on waiters in restaurants. Incongruous signs  are posted around town: "Stay home. Help Out.  Eat Out.  Lose weight."  
Diners pay half the amount of their bill.  The government reimburses restaurant owners the other half.

Two hours after the last blog was sent with a comment that hurricane Genevieve hadn´t brought big rains, a deluge of rain accompanied by a rollicking, crashing, flashing, thrilling three-hour storm arrived.  A friend´s granddaughter told her that these storms are like lullabies for her. After torrential rains, high rivers carry sediment and topsoil down to the bay, coating areas nearest the rivers with great smears of  brown.  Conveniently, storms and showers almost always take place at night and are quite beautiful.  So far this summer, Mexico has experienced three hurricanes and seven tropical storms.  Hurricane season doesn´t end until November.

ESCAPE TO PARADISE:  Coco´s, a popular family owned restaurant on the beach in Quimixto, a small village 15 minutes south by water taxi from (maskless) Boca de Tomatlán, was destroyed last year by flooding of the nearby Quimixto river. Coco´s was rebuilt, but the river roared back, destroying it a second time. Owners have opened a smaller place in the village close to the pier, but far from the river. 

 Fue el restuarante Coco´s - Quimixto

On a beautiful blue morning, a friend and I took a 15-minute panga ride from Boca to Quimixto and were left off on the beach in front of of El Volador restaurant.  Settling onto chaise longs under colorful striped umbrellas, we watched pelicans plunging into a pod of jumping silvery fish, while a Pug puppy 
paddled about in small waves and dug holes in the sand for burial of sticks and other treasures.  Temperature of the murky, sediment-infused water is about 82 degrees, with cool currents coming from the rain-filled river. In the distance, a train of white puffy clouds followed the curve of the horseshoe-shaped bay.  Other than our waiter and the owners of the restaurant.  no one else was there.  Lunch delicious -freshly squeezed lemonades, guacamole and red snapper fished out of the bay a few hours earlier.

When I arrived home, a very large and gorgeous  iguana was waiting for me in our pool.
