Looks beautiful in the pictures and quite large, they have a web site with preliminary information. It is located in the west end perhaps next to the first Pemex.

Very ambitious project and will take lots of money. Who are the other principals? The couple on the right, do you know who they are?

I've been hearing about this project and seen the plans for at least a year, maybe 2. Pero, vamos a ver.

I don't know the others, There is a major project next door to me at the old Japanese garden centre, not sure if that is the place.

I don't know either where this location is. I've asked several folks in the area and nobody knows. I thought it was the old Contessa property, a bit more west than you.

Slainte! What was the story on the Contessa or whatever she was? That property hillside with the big gates used to be purple/lavender? Los Charrales/El Bajio area? Do you remember her?

Are you talking about the Norwegian mining heiress that started and built Las Canadas?

Maybe, I've never heard that part. Everyone referred to her as the Contessa and she had horses. She had just moved or died when I got here 12 years ago.

I will pay attention tomorrow to the location when I'm out that way and tell you exactly where the property is. To my knowledge, it is still vacant unless this project will be there.

There was an ostrich farm/operation there for a while when it first started, but I don't remember how long ago.....maybe 10, 15 years.  It didn't survive.

Only that she had a home on Independencia, which is called “Casa de la Rusa“, and which I have visited in the past. She did ride and it is rumored that she had some interest in gold mines near Ajijic. Whether there was anything to it, or if it was a scam; I do not know.  It is also said that she claimed to be some sort of Russian nobility, and maybe even an operatic diva.  ¿Quien sabe?  Maybe just border promotions that she invented for herself.
The property on Independencia is not large, and is rather dark inside. It is located on the south side of the street.

Do you know if she's still alive? I know a retired opera singer who is older . . .

Hah! Thanks, RV, I look forward to reading all this. She probably exemplifies the type of foreigners who lived here before all us deadbeats moved here, no? lolol

Gracias! I bet Dr. G knew her, I will ask him.

La Rusa, Zara, had a large home on Independencia as RV says, that has been subdivided into at least four separate homes today.  she has been dead probably at least 25 or maybe 30 years. I used to give her lifts to the Teatro Degollado when I was going to Guadalajara in the early 1980's as she attended many events there. I can't guarantee she was a Romanov, but she claimed she was, but did have a track record of being a ballerina and many ballet performances after she left/escaped from Russia. Morley Eager had her portrait done in mural form on one of the walls of The Nueva Posada when it was built in the early 1990's.  I don't  believe she ever owned any property on the west outskirts of Ajijic or owned any gold mines, and if she did, it was a long time ago, before my time.
In her later life, she always dressed in black.....never saw her in any other color. Long black gloves, up over elbows, even in mayo.

LCS is in the slow process of archiving all of the Neill James correspondence, journals, legal documents,
photos, clothing, etc. Included in her book collection is a small autobiographical booklet written by La Rusa. Some fascinating materials for sure.
LCS has begun putting tidbits about Neill James her history before and after Ajijic in the monthly newsletter as well as the monthly American Legion Roll Call magazine which devotes two pages to
LCS every month.

Neill James, La Rusa, and a brilliant alcoholic British poet named Ian (can't remember his last name), used to hold court at one of the lakeside window tables in the restaurant part at the Old Posada occasionally in the 80's.  They were fascinating to listen to and talk to. It was a different world here, then.

So true, but recalling certain experiences or memories makes it seem more poignant, as it is easy to forget that,  in the world of the internet, Walmart, and all the other changes here we have absorbed without thinking much about them, as time goes by.
Even telephones and television were a rarity back then. Having lived through all the changes here, it is hard to even imagine "aquellos tiempos".

One day the younger among us will be talking about today as the good old days. I don't want to think about how things will be here in another 30 or 40 years. This is why the limited human life span is a good thing.

Meanwhile, there are still places without Walmart, Internet, television, and cell service for those who find them intrusive. In another 30 years I wonder how far you will have to go to get away from it all? Or if you will be able to at all.

Is it time for that fine old Russian folk song....."those were the days, my friend: we thought they'd never end........."?
And besides,  during the "good old days" we saw things through young eyes in young bodies and minds.  Quite a different view.  (Not necessarily more accurate, though)

As for the admittedly overwhelming entrance of gadgets and connectivity....it's a choice.  I'm not as close to the nut farm as some posters (especially on TOB), but I've chosen to limit my exposure to most of that:  no Facebook, no latest phone creation, no carrying the cell on my body for constant interruptions and I don't really giveadam that we have a huge Walmart down the road.  At least the parking lot isn't a life and car threatening experience.  The latest reports of intrusive government surveillance just verify what I've always believed:  don't trust the rascals.

Re the El Pueblita project: the only place I see going West that looks like a likely spot is where the old nursery used to be. Anyone actually know?

I have been told that the Japanese nursery site is another condo project. Don't even remember who told me so can't vouch for accuracy.

Based on my analysis of the available data, I estimate the location to be approx. 905 Carretera poiniente.
Between Tres Canadas and Los Mezquites. Just past the topes and bunkers that the army set up a few years back.
But I could be wrong. Beer Beer
