Last week, I had run out of some sort of food item. I don't remember exactly what it was. Italian pasta. Pickled ginger. Kalamata olives. American butter. I only remember that it was something imported. When I need imported food, I have one reliable source: Hawaii. If it is in town, it will be there. But, whatever it was was not on the shelf. I asked Alex, the owner, if it had been discontinued. It turns out his source was Costco, and Costco had not stocked the item for months because it was caught in a constipated supply chain. And that constriction was due primarily to a new Mexican government regulation. If you purchase food in Mexico you have probably already noticed a large label that announces its theoretical healthfulness. Three categories are graded: calories, saturated fat, and sodium. If any of those categories exceed the limit set by the Secretary of Health, that category turns a deadly black. All of this probably sounds vaguely familiar to you.

"Can I bring my dog on the bus?" It is one of the most common questions I am asked by northern visitors. And my usual response is to fall back on parsing the question. "It depends on the type of the bus, where you are coming from, and where you are going." We lawyers are prone to taking a hypothetical cottage and turning it into a palatial maze. That is, when we are not turning them into castles in the sky. And the entire cross-examination is unnecessary for one simple reason. I have ridden only one bus since I have lived in Mexico -- and my dog was not accompanying me. But I now know there is an easy answer to the question. This morning, while walking past the bus station in San Patricio Melaque, I discovered Primera Plus (one of Mexico's premier passenger bus lines) has come to the aid of their passengers. That large banner is a typically-thorough Mexican response to the bus-riding dog question. And if the banner is not sufficient, Primer Plus has provid

**A cow's skull decorates a well near the entrance of the hotel**. We visited _Hotel Hacienda Matel_ during our day-trip to _San Sebastian del Oeste_. While there are a number haciendas in the area dating to the colonial and early-Republic eras, this one was built in 2008. It is a product of _San Sebastian's_ growing tourist trade. The architectural design of the hotel imitates historical haciendas and the owners have filled it with artifacts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. _Hotel Hacienda Matel_ is an interesting place in a lovely setting and is worth a visit if you get to _San Sebastian_. To find the hotel on a Google map of _San Sebastian del Oeste_ , click here.
** _Hacienda Matel's_ Exterior**
**The hotel's centerpiece is a fair imitation of an historic _casa grande_**. Like the _casas grandes_ (big houses) it simulates, the rectangular building is built around an open central courtyard, accessed through an impressive gate. On each corner are cylindrical s
