Zih Silver Lining

Well, now it turns out the pier won't get rebuilt until next year, according to the latest from the gobernador's office. Gotta let those millions draw plenty of interest in a bank account. ;-)

Oh, and the work on the walkway by footbridge near La Boquita canal by the museum looks like it's going to include the failing wall on the east side by the mouth of the canal. The huge hole in the wall on the west side of the canal less than 20 yards away is still there. For some reason it hasn't occurred to anyone to throw up some sandbags around it to keep the water that washes in from the waves from accumulating there. It still hasn't rained other than a few light sprinkles during the past few weeks. If they wait until a serious storm comes it could be the one that causes the canal wall to fail.

And finally it looks like the ejidatarios are going to do what I've always suggested, taking more drastic action to get Fonatur to pay them the huge debt for lands in Ixtapa expropriated around 45 years ago but for which the ejidatarios were never paid or otherwise reimbursed. They haven't made public exactly what they're going to do, but I've always suggested closing off the highways into and out of Ixtapa, or at the very least blocking access to the over 400 hectares that they haven't been compensated for. A real shame the federal government is forcing their hand, but corruption cannot be allowed to reign.

This lovely view from the pier this morning included a cloud with a silver lining.

A marvelous glow in the eastern sky greeted us as we left our home for our morning stroll today.
