NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico - For the past two years, I've been encouraging/touting/promoting a SWCS Class of '66 winter reunion here for our 45th class graduation anniversary.
And a few folks have responded, though it's unlikely the economy will call our class visitors a boom in tourism.
The dates when we will do some kind reunion - for whomever makes it - will be Feb. 11 to Feb. 25.
That's when Barb Bunce Garlock and her husband will be on scene in Puerto Vallarta. Everybody else, come on down...
This season, my wife Sylvia and I are splitting our time between Puerto Vallarta and our hacienda in Arroyo Seco, about 2.5 hours driving time to the south of here.
Well, our son is going through a divorce and fighting for child custody right now. In Mexico, family is everything and so our presence (we hope) will help tip the scale so he can have some custody of his two-year-old daughter, Sasha.
Given that our son is an American citizen, our grandaugther holds and American and Mexican citizenship, and the child's mother is a Romanian citizen, we might have to call in the United Nations to mediate.
But none of that affects my ability to mix margaritas and/or Cuba Libres.
Plus, we now have access to a panga (small boat) to tour Banderas Bay, arguably one of the most beautiful bodies of water in Mexico.
Here's a couple of videos I posted on another blog from tours of the bay.
