The First Gastronomic Tasting of  Lion fish (1º Muestra Gastronómica” de pez león) event will take place on Friday, December 6th, at the Town Square. At this event, various preparations of lion fish will be presented. 
     There was a meeting of governmental officials in the council room to establish the criteria and format. The meeting was chaired by Cristina Medina , director of Ecology, and Humberto Moguel , director of Fishing, and both officials stressed how imperative it is present the benefits of the marketing and consumption of lionfish, whose presence is disrupting the local ecology. It is not a native species and its overpopulation is threatening lobster, fish, and other seafood which are pillars of the island's economy. 
     To provide accurate information about  lion fish , experts MC Francisco Aguilar, of the Regional Center for Fishing Research ( CRIP ) , and Arturo Gonzalez Gonzalez of the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas ( Conanp ) were invited to speak at the meeting. They reported that lionfish can be consumed without being harmful to people, saying that cooking at high temperatures removes toxins.This event may lead to further tasting events and a fishing tournament, and will by preceded by training for the fishermen regarding capturing and handling lion fish for preparation and distribution, so it can be consumed by the public.
     These actions are being performed under the direction of the Mayor, said Christina Medina, as a measure to find economic alternatives for the fishermen, and at the meeting they discussed how to market the product for human consumption. The meeting included fishermen, restauranteurs, and gastrónomos (gourmets/food experts/food critics), among others. They are urgently seeking to reverse the negative ecological and economic effects, and somehow take advantage of the situation.

Luego de defraudar a docena de pequeños empresarios

 It is alleged that Robin Leijon, 26, of Sweden has failed to pay hotel and restaurant bills to at least a dozen businesses during his stay in Isla Mujeres, which is said to have lasted over a month. When this was first reported to Immigration, they said there was a lack of evidence. On Wednesday, a hotel reported him to the PMP, Policía Municipal Preventiva, regarding a bill of 10,000 pesos, which resulted in his arrest. He was transported in a Naval vessel to Cancun, for delivery to the Swiss Consulate, and it is expected that they will deport him to his homeland.

At 7:30 am the port was reopened and tourism activities resumed with catamarans arriving from the Cancun Hotel Zone. On Wednesday, boats under 50 feet were restricted to port, due to winds associated with Cold Front #14. Boaters were cautioned to pay attention for further advisories, because there could be a new port closure Friday night or Saturday morning. He said "The winds are currently 30-35 km/hr, but the port is open because it is not gusting beyond 40km/hr, which is the limit. The wind may increase in intensity on Friday afternoon.

Dropping temperatures cause increases in respiratory infections, and those with weaker immune systems are more at risk, including people with chronic degenerative diseases, said the Hospital Director, Dr David Valenzo Loeza. People are advised to stay warm, especially those who are under five or over 65 years of age, and to consume foods high in vitamin C. There has not been an increase yet, but typically at this time of year there are more infections of both upper and lower airways, including tonsillitis, pharyngitis, flu, and common colds.

Tonite Jim and I had a remarkable dinner at Casa de los Sueños. We had carrot ginger soup, potato leek soup, tropical salad, turkey, ham, duck, yams, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans, apple pie, pumpkin pie. Everything was just wonderful. The company was great and so was the atmosphere. This is my favorite restaurant on the island, Patty and Jim are amazing owners and Jason has done a fantastic job putting this menu together. Thank you to Casa de los Suenos....Gracias!!
