Zih Paseo por Terminar

We hope our perfect weather holds out a while longer, at least for the upcoming Semana Santa vacationers. Be nice to have some city water, too.

Slowly but surely much of the old downtown part of Zihuatanejo is seeing a semblance of order restored. Let's hope this trend continues. We've also seen the military making foot patrols around town. A very reassuring sight indeed.

I've really been enjoying being able to watch Stephen Colbert at 9:35 in the evening since DST kicked in up north, but this coming Sunday the Horario de Verano will kick in here, too. So those of you already here, get ready.

Almost finished.

Will there be some kind of dedication? Salute to the workers?

There will surely be a photo promo shoot for the politicians and bigwig public servants. Maybe the workers will get a verbena from the government in gratitude where neighbors can celebrate the end of the job with them. But not a sure thing. That's how it works here.

The movements of state politicians often seem to be guarded like state secrets, but if I get word beforehand I'll give y'all a heads up.

Brilliant! You'd think that stainless steel cable would be cheaper in the long run.

Well they could have used braided stainless steel cable, and that would have possibly lasted a week.

They had nylon rope up over Christmas on the stretch around the statue. Then they took it down

The rops they put up started getting stolen, so they removed it all. Now we'll see if it gets stolen again or if the neighbors and police can keep an eye on it.
