Do you ever wonder where your donations to Pro Sayulita end up? Well, here is one of the many projects underway at the moment that your dollars and pesos are supporting. Cyd Viator, our Lifeguard Tower designer and builder, has been working tirelessly since he arrived here on December 1st 2018. Cyd has selflessly volunteered his time to us and has been working solo on this project. He is currently building the last three lifeguard towers for the project at El Centro Creativo Sayulita, working seven hours a day, six days a week!

Arriba la mujer. This seems to be the signature phrase for Sayulita’s newest all female environmental action group, “Movimiento de la Mujer por el Medio Ambiente”. The group was created on Facebook by founding member and long-time Sayulita resident Tracie Willis. Because Tracie has lived in Sayulita for 29 years, she has easily seen the way the pueblo has changed and the way the environment has negatively been impacted. Tracie says, “I’ve been waiting many years for this generation of local women to come of age…this is a big movement, the first of its kind.” So what exactly is this group’s purpose and mission?

Chili Relleno is one of my most favorite Mexican dishes, and they are so easy to make here in Sayulita, as the poblano peppers are available at almost every tienda in town. The traditional chili relleno is a stuffed pepper that is breaded, deep fried, and smothered in a red sauce. My friend Susana was here last week, and she introduced me to her version; it is a deconstructed chili relleno with a lovely soufflé topping and a delicious homemade salsa verde. I just knew that I had to share this recipe with you today!

For many, the New Year is a holiday centered around self-reflection of the year that has passed, and thinking ahead to the new year to come. For many people, setting goals for the new year is a common practice, whether they be personal goals for self-improvement, health, and growth, or goals for improving/fostering relationships with family, friends, loved ones, or even academic or work related goals. For some, the new year is also about letting go of the past--- past mistakes, hurt, losses, or failures, and moving forward in pursuit of success and happiness. In Mexican culture here in Sayulita, our community is full of traditions and rituals believed to help move us into the New Year of 2019 with good luck and fortune.
