EL PROGRESO: A partially rural neighborhood eight kilometers northeast of centro Vallarta. Close to the foothills, which block the rising sun, it was still dark at 7:30 in the morning. Location for clinic was in an empty, immaculate one-story white cement house used for community events, including workshops. The roosters were crowing and looking for scraps of food with their chicken families and friends in a large, nearby pile of trash. Over forty pets were waiting with their owners, some of whom had arrived as early as 5 AM. Across the dirt road, a bare chested man with cropped beard, moustache and gold inlayed front teeth proudly showed me one of the six puppies born to his dog a week ago. It was her third litter.
Arriba: Dueño de unos perros que vive con su familia atrás de la casa comunidad en el Progreso. Para la mamá de este cachorrito de una semana de edad, es el tercer parto. Abajo: Caminado de su casa un poco lejos, llegaron demasiado tarde para registrar sus 3 perros. Regresaron a su casa con 3 bolsas de alimento y tres correas nuevas y el jueves, las mascotas fueron esterilizados.

EL PORVENIR, NAYARIT - A small town located in the Valle de Banderas, 15.77 kilometers (9.8 miles) northeast of Puerto Vallarta. Sprinkles en route with flashes of lightning in far away, pale grey clouds. The clinic took place in a blue, air-conditioned classroom at the Nicolás Bravo elementary school. Bravo (b.1786; d.1854) was a Mexican politician and military officer who participated on the insurgent side during the War of Independence. He was President for three three brief terms- 1839;1842-43 and 1846.
la última registrada fué a las 7 de la mañana - clínica en el porvenir
Arrival time for first persons at clinic was 4 AM. The last person to be able to register a pet was a smiling, pale-skinned older woman wearing a bright blue sleeveless dress. She had arrived with several cats in cages on top of a wheelbarrow. It was only 7 AM and there was no more space available. Across the street from the school is the large plaza with a children´s playground and tilted fir tree. A young woman wearing a black mask approached with her two dogs to say she had been turned away and asked what time should she come back the next morning. The young, middle-size black female had given birth to ten puppies ten weeks ago and all had died. Six in the morning usually guarantees registration.No había más espacio para mascotas después de las 7 de la mañana el miércoles. La perra negra había dado la luz a 10 cachorritos hacía 10 semanas y ninguno sobrevivió. La señorita iba a regresar como a las 6 el día siguiente. el porvenir

At the beach next to la Rosita" hotel at the north end of the malecón, swimmers gather every morning about eight, no matter what the weather is. Colorful floaties keep them safe from boats and long boarders. Not far away, bikers are at los arcos getting ready for a team ride. On the sand at popular los muertos beach near the modern "sail" pier, social distancing is observed by roping off large squares of sand. In the water on week-ends, families cluster near the pier and told they cannot jump off from it. They do.

AROUND TOWN: La Fina restaurant - atmosfera #151 in colonia el Caloso (close to gringo gulch and colonia Emiliano Zapata) - Five wooden tables in an outside patio strung with small, colorful lights. After being seated, I asked our waiter if we could see the indoor part of the restaurant. "Well, no, that´s the chef´s home." Jonathan, our waiter, is the chef´s nephew. Delicious food beautifully presented, excellent service and cozy atmosphere. Don´t miss! Reservations via FB.Restaurante la Fina - col. el Caloso
The awesome octopus. Ten percent of its brain is centralized in a highly folded, 30-lobed donut-shaped structure arranged around its esophagus. Two optic lobes account for another 30%, and 60% lies in its arms. Difficult to say which animals are alright to eat and which are not, but I think the other-worldly octopus could stay off restaurant menus without too much inconvenience to restaurant owners and diners. Maybe this very good film will dampen the demand.
