'They Tore Down the Russell Hotel - A Story of Change in Small Town Mexico' and 'Mystery Monkeys and Unstable Discs - A Snowbird's Guide to the Sunshine State' are the first two books written by Dave Easby. They chronicle the exploits of he and his wife as snowbirds first in n the small town of La Peñita de Jaltemba, Mexico and, later, in Dunedin, Florida.. Dave still spends his summers in Ontario, Canada but now winters in Dunedin, Florida with his wife Anne and his Mexican rescue dog Amarillo. He retired in 2005 after a thirty-year career with the Canadian and New Brunswick Governments. Since much of that time was spent working on speeches and briefing notes for Ministers and other Senior Officials, he decided to try writing non-fiction for a change in his retirement years.

They Tore Down the Russell Hotel - A Story of Change in Small Town Mexico
by Dave Easby
La Peñita de Jaltemba, Mexico is a community in transition. It’s a town where you still might see a woebegone donkey tied in the back of a rusting pick-up truck right across the street from a ritzy, new Italian Restaurant. This collection of funny, and sometimes moving, short stories follows the adventures of two retired Canadians as they try to adapt to this very different way of life.
