VacaZIHones a La Vuelta

What a lovely romantic song -- a tourist returns looking in many restaurants for the waitress he's fallen for on a prior trip to Zihua and finally finds her in Col. la Madera!

And written by local songwriter, author and poet extraordinaire José Antonio "Toño" Urbina Bello. Before the remodelación infernal he sold his poems, music and books in Plaza del Artista and ran the small portable library there. Unfortunately it appears that part of the purpose of the remodelación infernal was to make it impossible for people like him to be able to work there or anywhere else along the waterfront anymore. A damn shame and a big loss to what little local culture we actually have, IMHO.
