Noelia is a woman I have known all my life. As a child I played with her daughter who became my good friend in adulthood. I vividly remember walking down the street to her DVD rental store and picking out Mars Attack to watch with my dad. You can now find her at her store (which is also a laundromat) folding clothing in the back, or cooking a meal for her family. I interviewed her there while she spoke to customers, served rice for her nephew, and did laundry. Music was playing in the background as well as the steady…

Francisco “Pancho”, a local Captain and fisherman, was born in the neighboring state, Michoacan. When Pancho was just a kid, his parents decided to move their family of 11 to Sayulita, Nayarit, where other Michoacan friends and family had been migrating for a more peaceful life and better opportunities. Pancho’s first job in Sayulita, along with his mom, aunts and cousins was as a waiter at Chocobanana (hence his nickname “Pancho Banana”, from the association with the restaurant!). Pancho was then recruited to join Allycat as they were starting their boat charter business. He learned everything about boats from Darrin…

Mexico. Why do I feel so at peace here? A connection. A belonging. A life-force energy pulsing through every fiber of my being. Why am I so content journeying through the plain of snakes and royal eagles? Even more puzzling, why have I never felt this connection and belonging in my home country? I may never untangle the answers to these inevitably unanswerable questions. But what I do know is this: This land and its people have activated a long-dormant part of my soul. Mexico has captivated and enchanted, stirred and awoken, and rendered me breathless time and time again….
