Here in Mazatlán, the snowbirds have gone North again and those of us who stay all year wonder why they leave so early. The weather is perfect – in the 80’s during the day and 60’s at night. The beaches are ours again, and the water is pleasant. Beer is 15 pesos, you can buy a mango on a stick or a cup full of cut up watermelon… and along with a good book, what more could you want?x
Last night was the final opening of the season at Luna Gallery. What a fantastic addition this gallery has been for art lovers in Mazatlán! The show – Visiones y Obsesiones, is a wonderful mix of works where each artist explored their own visions and obsessions.
This coming Friday is the final Art Walk of the season, from 4-8 pm. Then, at 8 pm we are heading to the Angela Peralta Theater for a performance by the Sinaloa Symphony Orchestra of the Arts conducted by Gordon Campbell. The program includes pieces by Chopin, Brahms, and Rimsky Korsakov. Cost is from 80 to 200 pesos, so very affordable for such great music in a fantastic restored treasure of a theater. x
There are a few more things coming up to keep us busy through the summer. But I know I am looking forward to a bit quieter life, projects at home and lots of reading and visiting with friends at the beach.x
