Meeting with US Embassy folks...

by Tere @, Wednesday, May 29, 2019, 12:21 (175 days ago)

June 6th 11:30-12:30 in Ixtapa - here's more details, for those interested:
I cut and pasted from a website, but this website says: Error. Maybe it's only in facebook...

At Villas Paraiso Hotel in Ixtapa (across from Emilo's Pizza)

Won't let me copy or paste info here.

But, there's a lot of statistics there about crime (or the lack thereof) in Zihua.

I attended the last meeting. I am disgusted they picked this time of year where CLEARLY there will not be many US citizens around during the low season. I would expect this from our current government. I hope those who go are very LOUD on the rating the area receives from the state department.

I would think that they'd be more interested in communicating with permanent, American residents, rather than short term visitors.

Obviously the timing of the meeting is intended to allow as few US citizens as possible to hear whatever political speak they plan to deliver. I thought Guerrero was too dangerous for State Department personnel to travel to ?

Didn't see you at the last meeting? If you were there you would have knowen it was about people traveling to the area.

I wasn't at any meeting, since we don't live there. Visitors and permanent American residents travel. One might assume that if they wanted to only talk to visitors, rather than permanent residents, they would arrange their visit for a more reasonable time. But they're bureaucrats, so who knows.

All you folks complaining and questioning the timing of their visit can cry, piss, moan and bang your fists and whimper all you want, but if you really want answers how about CONTACTING them. It's very easy, and they have always been cordial and very responsive whenever I've done so.

at least they are making an effort to come to Ixtapa. There is not as large a population of Gringos in the area as other places. No time is perfect for everyone.

I will be at the meeting, as I was at last year's meeting. The embassy reps are merely following the official political spew from Trump's administration. I believe it is important to attend these types of meetings in order to state our feelings on extremely important policies that affect Zihua.

Would you mind taking notes and passing the info on to those of us unable to go?

I hope someone presses them hard on the level 4 warning! Which I find COMPLETLY ridiculous.
