An impromptu moment in Mexican history
By Robin Loving Rowland
What prompted the expat migration to San Miguel de Allende? According to Lou Christine, it was one person in an impromptu moment on a passenger train in Oaxaca in 1933. For the rest of the story, come to the Rotary Club Tuesday, October 29, at 12:30pm at Hotel Real de Minas. It costs nothing to attend, and Lou Christine, who has graced the podium there a number of times in the past, is sure to delight all comers with his presentation entitled “An Impromptu Moment in Mexican History.”
An Impromptu Moment in Mexican History
Tue, Oct 29, 12:30pm
Hotel Real de Minas
Stirling Dickinson at Ancha de San Antonio
Christine will explain how two important figures in Mexican history, opera star José Mojíca and author Stirling Dickinson, met four years later on February 7, 1937. The rest, as they say, is history. And all in San Miguel will get to share in that history!
Christine is perhaps best known as the producer of the arts and crafts fairs held at the Instituto Allende several times a year, and as the owner of the VIP Club discount card. His tales are colorful, as he has mastered the art of storytelling through writing about things as varied as sports, antiques, and rock and roll in columns, novels, film scripts, articles, and plays in the US, Spain, and Mexico.
