I would just like to post some thoughts and impressions about my trip to Zihua/Ixtapa. First of all there might have been a misunderstanding regarding myself and some other posters, but that is in the past and I bear no hard feelings (misunderstandings happen) and chatting/posting online can sometimes be difficult (humor and thoughts are very imperfect). I have enjoyed my time here and have met some wonderful people (both locals and Expats). Big thanks to Susan for hooking me up with her realtor and to my new m8s for my Wednesday night poker game. It was close but Juan Carlos got me on the last hand. Today I looked at some property in Ixtapa and I think I found what I was looking for. I will probably close the deal on Monday. We all look for different things when it comes to a place to live, I like Zihua but it's a bit too busy for me. I like my solitude and peace and a more tranquil lifestyle but I'll be in town for poker night and happy hour Fridays. I also believe that one should give back to the community, so I would have no problem volunteering my time to help combat literacy (although my Spanish is bad, the fundamentals are there and I just need more practice), animals that have been abandoned or abused and (find them good homes) and of course helping poor children. I have been in contact with a few people on here and I'm sure once I get settled in. My time will be filled with projects. I am meeting some expats today at 5:30 so if you want to stop by and say hello, then by all means do so.Thanks to all for the hints, suggestions, advice, time and support/effort given to me to feel welcome.
