Tales of Retirement in Paradise
|Tales of Retirement in Paradise - Revisited|
Polly G. Vicars
With a modicum of modesty, a soupcon of pride, and a heap of hutzpa, I am resurrecting my first book, "Tales of Retirement in Paradise - Life in Puerto Vallara Mexico," for the fans and family who continue to urge me to reprint the book, which sold out in its first year.
In conversations with editors of two popular English language dailies, we decided that it would be fun to publish a serialized and updated version - one in the print publication Vallarta Today, and one online here at BanderasNews.com.
So here's Tales of Retirement in Paradise, originally written in August 1995 (with updates in italics).

Polly G. Vicars and her husband of 57 years, Hubert (a.k.a. "Husband") retired to Puerto Vallarta in 1988 and soon became active members of several charitable organizations. Polly is the author of "Tales of Retirement in Paradise: Life in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico" [a sell-out!] and "More Tales of Retirement in Puerto Vallarta and Around the World." Proceeds from the sale of her books go to the America-Mexico Foundation, a scholarship foundation that is their passion.
