The latest crazy idea floating around is to build a crystal lookout atop Cerro Viejo, of course that means there would have to be a road. I wish people would quit trying to think up new reasons to pave paradise. We've pretty well run off the tourists who actually spent money here and who used to allow many local businesses to enjoy some prosperity. Apparently now it's all about turning Zihuatanejo into some kind of Disneyland for adventurous alcoholics who jetski by day and disco all night. Not at all how many of us envisioned our town's future.

104 active cases of Covid-19 were reported today in Zihuatanejo. Hopefully the return to Semáforo Amarillo and the availability of vaccines to younger people will help get this pesky pandemia under control here.

This is from earlier this week when storm clouds made for a dramatic sky, and the sun peeking through cast an orange light on the breaking waves.

You have got to be shi*ing me! I can't stop shaking my head at all of this ridiculousness. Zihuatanejo was beautiful and charming the way it was.

Instead of pavement, why not offer paint or other supplies needed to the business owners. I'm sure they would appreciate the help in order to maintain their livelihoods. The locals have worked so incredibly hard to keep going during all of this. Where is the help they need.

:grrr:
