  • Eyes of Kobe (not the beef) 1 day ago Last week, walking down Crespo, I spotted a mural at the corner of Zona de Monumento and discovered it was the work of Jesus Kobe. Hmmm… Recently, I’d seen another of his works on Allende near Crespo. I was familiar with the artist because last year, friends and I were walking along Panorámica...

Behind every mask there is a face, and behind that a story. –Marty Rubin The human face is, after all, nothing more nor less than a mask. —Agatha Christie I believe in my mask–The man I made up is me I...

Shannon, I hoe I have the right blog. Shannon O'Donnell?? I am retirement age. I am looking for a better cost of living for my retirement years. I want to stay as close to the U.S. as possible. I have five grown children and grandchildren. You are living and advertising for locations near Puerta Vallarta. Do you have information about places further North and still on the Pacific Coast? Are there other publications you can recommend? I am early in this process but reasonably certain i will do something. And it is that something i am searching for. Thanks for any help you can provide.,
