Women Wise – May

What a coincidence: The woman featured in my Women-Wise article this month is called Wise; Carolyn Wise – that is. I met her at restaurant Rincón de Peña Parda, in La Herradura and was curious to hear her story.

20 Handy Tips

My girlfriends and I were recently sharing very handy tips that have been passed down to us – mostly by our grandmothers. I haven’t tried all of them myself yet, so I can’t guarantee how well they work. Here are a few I’d like to share with you

Art in the Area

We are very lucky to have such a multitude of talented and dedicated artists in our local community. Thankfully, so many of them are willing share their time, energy and passion in order that the rest of us can behold and enjoy their interesting and beautiful creations.

Have you ever met someone who died? Someone who died and lived to tell about it? Sounds bizarre and incredible, right? Well, I know a Danish gentleman, living in La Herradura, who has had that unfortunate (or should I say fortunate?) experience.

The Gift of Giving

I am sitting in Vancouver and it’s snowing! Watching the snowflakes fall reminds me that Christmas is drawing near and that it is also the time for giving – usually in the form of presents.
