Puerto Vallarta is a melting pot of cultures, styles, moods and grooves and it’s thanks to the eclectic variety of people that flock here. Alison Lo was drawn to PV due to its magnetism and her curiosity and is now a headlining artist in town.
Elliot Page’s Times cover will set a precedent in the fight for trans equality. Cultural change is a hard thing to measure accurately but important moments of visibility, such as this cover, can help raise awareness and start a conversation.
Recently, one of these cooler nights we’ve been having in Puerto Vallarta lately, I found myself wandering through the malecon area. As I combed the streets looking at beautiful façades and finding spots I’d never seen before, or maybe hadn't seen at night. My walk was in part fueled by wonder but also hunger. Before I knew it I had walked up to the Cathedral which stood tall and powerful under the night sky. After taking a plethora of pictures, none of which did it justice, I turned around after hearing the sound of families gathered around a table. With its open doors and windows I was able to see into a small restaurant, exactly across from where I stood. Tables filled with families (mostly locals- always a great sign) either talking up a storm as they waited for their meals or dead silent once they had been served. My friend asked If I knew the place and when I responded that I didn’t he said I was in for a treat, and boy was I.
