AN INTERVIEW WITH ADIL SCHINDLER
Adil Schindler and his partner, Camilla Fuchs, first visited Sayulita approximately seven years ago while living in Puerto Vallarta for a few months. They both fell in love with the pueblo and had a desire to settle here one day, which happened in the summer of 2014 after a move from Cabo San Lucas.

He has since used and developed his business and skill set while traveling extensively and working in a number of different countries and locations.

THE GIFT OF GIVING IN SAYULITA
The seasons are changing in Sayulita – summer is ending and high season will soon be upon us. As we move towards fall and the holiday season, we often think of loved ones that we need to buy or make gifts for. We look forward to bringing joy to little ones as they open their gifts. We celebrate with good food and good friends. Sometimes we reach out to the community and donate to others – with toys, clothes, and gifts of food. We are so generous during these times. But this “gift of giving” doesn’t have to be limited to just a couple of months – we can give year round in Sayulita.
PET OF THE WEEK
My (new) name is Sina and I'm one of those Pitbulls who got to be in the WRONG hands. I was living with a drug addict who treated me badly, cut off my ears himself, and kept me in bad conditions. A sweet lady felt pity for me and took me away from this man. Despite my ordeal, I'm a loving dog. I get along fine with other dogs and I'm really thankful that I got away from there. I do need a new home now. I look very much forward to meeting you, in case you are looking for a dog like me!
LIFEGUARD TRAINING 2016
As the high season begins, so do our preparations for safety in the community. The Civil Protection y Bomberos Training Symposium for 2016 will be held on December 6, 7, and 8 in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit. This year’s Symposium will be again supported by Firefighters Crossing Borders Instructors who will provide local firefighters training on Auto Extrication, Rope Rescue, Fire Ground Survival, and Surf Rescue.
