Another Day in Paradise - November 2003

Welcome to Another Day In Paradise.
Letter from the Editor
November is upon us, and my, do we have a lot of work to do this season!
Our little beach town is growing and ADiP is scrambling to keep up.
We've added some new features and we'll be adding even more as the months
This month we have an even bigger Business and Finance section to keep
our minds sharp and our knowledge updated. And to shake off any lingering
rainy season fog, we've decided to dive right into our new Art & Architecture
series, beginning this month with natural elements and La Casa Que Canta
hotel. We are expanding even more into Michoacán and welcome our new readers
in Morelia, Pátzcuaro and Uruapan with a monthly section devoted to that
beautiful mountain region. This month highlighting Morelia's first annual
international film festival. As well as our regular features on food,
fishing, history, community, things to do and more.
We want to know what you think. This season we are starting a reader's
poll called "Best of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo." For the next 6 months, you the
reader, will be able to place your votes for the Best Of... in 10 categories
and all results will be published in our April issue. Go to our web site
(www.zihua-ixtapa.com/~anotherday) and follow the links on the home page
to cast your votes, deadline March 15, 2004.
Also be on the look out for more information about Zihuatanejo's new
sister city program with Palm Desert, CA.
And mark your calendars for April 17-24 2004. Zihuatanejo is hosting
its first annual international Guitar festival. A week of guitar music
in paradise. Venues, sponsors, volunteers and poster designs (among other
things) are being solicited, contact me for more information.
Until next time !

This is the first
of a series of articles that will have you ready to do it. In
writing these items about Mexican cooking, I have to give all of the
credit of the information and “how to” to Rebecca Ambriz. For my
part, I just enjoy her great talent in the kitchen, and translate
everything to English for these pages.

Playa Linda and the stretch of palm lined beach defined by Playa
Pantla and Playa Buena Vista. The swells were moderate, but as they
ended their thousands of mile journey by crashing on the rocky
shoreline, the spray was reaching heights of 30 feet or more. We
were on the panga Dos Hermanos and only a few feet from the back
side of the crashing olas. Our quarry was roosterfish.
