Letter from the Editor – December 2007

Welcome to Another Day in Paradise.       Optimism, is it a decision, a delusion, or a force of nature?       When the mirage that shimmers just out of reach, that unique special thing that you want above all, one day all-of-a-sudden, careens sharply into focus and within your grasp…it makes you...

The Organized Chaos of Lucha Libre

The Organized Chaos of Lucha Libre

Sundays in the United States are impossible to disassociate with football. Not so in Mexico, where futbol americano enjoys regular television airtime, but it hasn’t reached the level of importance that the sport now enjoys north of the border (slightly less important than breathing, but far more important than governing the country).

Plus, May through December brings on the incredible roosterfish. For both of these fish, the lighting fast runs, combined with brute strength and a bad attitude, make...

The Mexican National Anthem

The Sunday night national radio hour in Mexico is not an exciting affair. A bit like NPR’s This American Life (minus the forced quirkiness), the weekly program gives government broadcasters a chance to clue listeners in to, for instance, a new health program in some state far, far away.

Well on its way to becoming a truly important event for international cinema, I highly recommend attending....

Getting Ready for Rainy Season

Getting Ready for Rainy Season

The summer season in Zihuatanejo means a lot of things to its residents, on the one hand it’s a chance to relax from the high season tourism, and enjoy practically empty local beaches and restaurants. On the other hand, it’s a time of preparation for the rainy season—which dominates the months from June through September,...

Experience Fly Fishing

Experience Fly Fishing

There is no mystery to it. It is only taking light line fishing to the next level. In a previous Another Day In Paradise, I had written about the many different ways to catch a sailfish, so you not just end up being a winch after one of the crew sets the hook. The various...

Letter from the Editor – April 2007
