Chismes y PrecauZIHones

State authorities report NO currently active cases of Covid-19 along the entire Costa Grande.

Zihuatanejo is zipped up tight. A beer depository was set on fire today. Streets are mostly empty. Almost all the businesses closed extremely early today, many never even opened, and panic buying of gasoline has long lines at local gas stations as rumors circulate of their eventual closure, too. Schools aren't opening this Friday, and local residents are quite uneasy at the moment. If only we had a real police force that walked beats, knew the neighborhoods and enjoyed the trust of the citizens. But we don't. So we hunker down and weather this out as best we can. Give the police and military a few days to catch up, to get a grip on things and to come up with a plan. In the meantime everyone is advised to remain calm but to stay alert. If you see something report it to 911 or to Seguridad Pública (numbers that should be on your cellphones if you live here). See my webpage for Emergency & Useful Phone Numbers.

While walking our dogs this morning, we saw a couple find a wad of bills on the walkway, and they assumed it was ours so they gave it to us, but my wife suspected it belonged to another couple who had just been taking photos in front of Plaza del Artista, so we hung around the area walking our dogs more slowly than usual, and sure enough the couple who lost the money came back looking for it and we returned it to them. Chalk up one good deed for the day! That felt good. :-D

Did anyone go for pozole today? Jueves pozolero is one of Guerrero's treasured traditions enjoyed all over the state and beyond. A shot of mezcal is customary with pozole, and Guerrero's mezcal is some of the finest. We like to buy our mezcal at the Eco-Tianguis "Sanca" held Saturday mornings from 8AM to 1PM in the small plaza in front of the Vicente Guerrero elementary school across the street from the Museo Arqueológico de la Costa Grande. They have lots of other goodies there, too!

One of our hidden treasures for nature lovers and surfing enthusiasts seeking a stress-free relaxing vacation is Casa Delfin Sonriente, a B&B located on Playa Troncones less than a half hour's drive northwest along the coast from Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa.

¡Cuidemos nuestro patrimonio!

Although it was cloudy most of the day, it only rained a little during the wee hours of the morning, but the high tide and the mar de fondo has all the fishing pangas bunched up high on the beach.
