Dear Editor: Thank you for publishing such wonderful articles about such a wonderful part of the world.

Katina Pontikes, the author of An Unchanged Village, is my sister. I fell in love with Lake Chapala through visiting Katina and her husband, Monty.

Lake Chapala and Ajijic are so special! Your articles permit a vicarious visit!

I’ll have to visit Flossie’s hummingbirds next time I go to Ajijic.


Linda & Michel

Oh my! What a wonderful story! You brought tears to both our eyes! Though it is really hard to believe but again so you! Love you Gale - from Mexico Beach, Florida.
PS: Michel says next we see you he is putting a wooden block under your gas pedal! LOL

I know the feelings, lonely, wishing for a mate. there is a chinese saying: the man takes a drink, the drink takes a drink and the drink takes the man. I have been there and I think that is why I am alone.

What A Lovely Read

It moves me to see the moonlight with your eyes, and to feel the alone self in the vast world of beings. My dogs help warm the bed, but yes, a last great love affair would be a good thing.

As a child, my mother moved to Mexico with her family during the Depression. Her family knew Otto Butterlin and his wife. I have a painting of his and a photo of him. The date of the painting is 1936 and the photo must be from the early 1930s. Is there anyone there who might have a connection to Mr. Butterlin’s family?
