New Year in Puerto Vallarta
Happy New Year
As we hang on one another’s shoulders this year in Puerto Vallarta, bang our champagne mugs together, and sing Auld Lang Syne, let’s get ready for a fresh and friendly year.
Sadly this past year has had a lot of people at odds with one another and we’d like to see everyone, back in the homelands, and here in our own adopted territory, sharing good times and enjoying the fabulous life we are so lucky to have here in Puerto Vallarta.
Many of us have found Facebook to be a forum for voicing complaints. There are pages devoted to bellyaching and provocation. We readily admit we find ourselves sucked in to these rants, and more often than not, completely amused. However it might be more productive to stick to those alliances who cheerily share information of upcoming events, new changes in simple government policies that affect expats, alerts at the airport, new products at Costco and other stores, weather conditions and local entertainment.
If one has an issue with a proprietor; hotel or restaurant owner; local charity, for example, it will serve us all better to address the situation with that merchant rather than splash it all over social media, and has a greater likelihood of having a resolution, rather than hard feelings and even worse, effects on a business that is only doing the same as anyone else in town: trying to make a living and get ahead.
In the following New Year, I encourage my readers to engage in productive debate and not try solving the problems of Mexico and Puerto Vallarta; allowing the local government to do their job. If you feel you do have a legitimate complaint, there are proper channels. Find out what they are and follow through with diplomacy. A smile and kind words get you a long way here in Puerto Vallarta.
