Fandango 24/7 in the LA Times

Can't Post |
IN this misty mountain town tucked in the Sierra Madre, far from Mexico's tired tourist track, a musical revolution is unfolding. In the clubs that dot Xalapa's winding streets and alleyways, young musicians are preserving — and transforming — a traditional folk genre called son jarocho.


"This is definitely a wonderful place to come," says Roy Dudley, an eccentric American expatriate known as "El Gringo Jalapeño" who leads walking tours for English-speaking visitors. "I always tell people, 'You can get bored in Xalapa — if you really work at it.' ",0,2402885.story?coll=la-home-travel (registration required)

¡Hola, amigos costeños!
It is good to hear that I am an "eccentric" at my 55 year old status! Well, I hope it is because I have been fortunate enough to have lived in Xalapa for the last 33 years and love the city that has adopted me very much, even though it has problems like anyplace in this world.
So be it...from now on I am officially "El Gringo Jalapeño ecentrico"! ¡Viva Mèxico!
