From Here: Spring has Sprung

The first whole day of Spring and while Vallartenses don’t get excited about the first crocuses, a green blade of grass (make that anything green), the season still touches every soul with a choice of renewal. A time to clean up, sweep away the cold and everything nasty in its path and start again. Planting new seeds of thought and waiting and checking daily to see what has finally germinated and is reaching for the sunshine. Then set it to music and Welcome to Springtime in Vallarta! Joyous? Hell, yes. There are concerts, festivals, celebrations and rites of passage everywhere.

Award-winning movies continue to be shown at Incanto’s comfortable theatre, with bar service and cozy wraps if the AC is too cold for you. I highly recommend Roma, Green Book, A Star is Born, and Bohemian Rhapsody. The latter is playing Thursday the 21st and Roma on Friday the 22nd. All films are shown on the new big screen at 3 pm. I especially love seeing these wonderful films at Incanto as opposed to having to travel a long way to a public theatre that can often be filled with children who find the urge to run up and down the aisles irresistible. I am just saying…

Vallarta’s favourite tenor Rodolfo has four performances left at Coco Tropical; two on Thursday, March 21 and 28, and two on Sunday, March 24 and 31, from 6 to 8:30 pm. If you have not heard our beloved, blind tenor sing, do yourself a favor and go give a listen. You can have a superb dinner, watch the sunset and be serenaded in three languages. Dancing is encouraged! More about where to find Rodolfo next month and beyond coming up in this column.

Hugs are vital to growth and the more you give the more you’ll get. Love the one you’re with, From Here.
