Happy 64th birthday to Zihuatanejo!
Today we celebrate the establishment of Zihuatanejo as a municipio in 1953. There will probably be some hoopla later today at the zócalo with politicians smiling for cameras, and surely something louder will occur later on that will keep downtown dwellers from getting to sleep at a decent hour. Not sure, because there is no info regarding any events to celebrate this anniversary on the ayuntamientos website or Facebook page, just the mayor getting his picture taken cutting ribbons on new cement streets and giving a discount to renew licenses for the hundreds of "artisans" (the great majority who produce nothing and sell products from China) who occupy the local public artisan markets that represent unfair competition for all of our tax-paying established businesses.

Our old friend Alfredo Vargas sits atop his beautiful sportfishing cruiser Esturion II awaiting clients.

Christmas lights add some color to the beach at dawn.
