Un Paraíso VeroZIHmil

Zihuatanejo is reporting 172 currently active cases of Covid-19. Nineteen of the 27 beds in the Covid-19 section of the hospital are currently occupied, but there are currently no intubados reported, so everyone is expected to survive even though locally we continue averaging a couple of deaths a day from the virus.

The stupid "Ciclovía" in Ixtapa that makes cyclists have to use the islands in the middle of the boulevard instead of the bike paths on the side of the road almost cost a local Gringa her life when a bus hit her in front of the Oxxo near the Barceló. Fortunately she's okay, but it could've been a lot worse. It was always a terrible design that should never have been allowed to be built because cyclists have to cross traffic repeatedly at turnarounds and intersections where visibility is difficult. But, the project was a "gift" from the gobernador to the then mayor-elect before he even took office, so safety apparently wasn't a big concern.

Tropical Storm Nora slowed down a bit right in front of us. Amazingly it's barely rained at all this evening so far, and Thursday was mostly a bright and sunny day of absolutely perfect weather. Winds that were expected to begin gusting late this afternoon now won't arrive until around 2AM Friday morning. ¡Chín! Odio a las tormentas de la medianoche. ¡Quiero dormir!

And it's looking like Saturday's gonna be a lotta fun, too. I imagine it'll run off quite a few tourists who were thinking about coming.

Stay vigilant!

A pretty scene to wake up to this morning. A fisherman races in to beach his panga. Bringin' home the bacon, so to speak.
