I lived for several years in Zacatecas, Mexico, and so I thoroughly enjoyed Christopher Reynolds' article on Paracho, Michoacan, Mexico's guitar center ("Guitar Central," Special Travel Issue, Oct. 14). I happened upon the festival by accident in 1998. Reynolds helped me relive memories of a superb weekend of friendliness and revelry. The city of Morelia is a true colonial jewel. But Reynolds only mentioned the Hotel & Suites Villa San Jose. There are excellent hotels located in the city center, including Hotel Casino, Hotel Virrey de Mendoza and Hotel Posada de la Soledad.

It was only the vacant California featherweight title. But Israel Correa of Michoacan, Mexico, and Naoya Hirahara battled like they were fighting for a world championship.
