Gozando las VacaZIHones

I have to say, this is one of the most pleasant summer vacation seasons we've had for some time with only a few minor incidents by drunks and maleducados. The municipal government has done a super job of keeping the bay and beaches clean. And they especially deserve recognition for working to bring the noise levels down at night from the bars and noisy vehicles. Even the putamóvil with its blaring music advertising a local strip club that used to make several passes through downtown with its strippers on the back of a truck in front of families with their children has stopped circulating in our part of town. A minor miracle that.

We seem to be getting more middle class tourists from the inland cities this year. Hopefully this trend will continue. They are our saving grace.

At the pier the last dregs of the old pilings are being cleaned up and the construction outfit appears ready to start setting the new ones which should be arriving this week. When they built the original pier all the materials were brought here by boat from Acapulco and offloaded onto the beach. Some of the original old pilings remain where they were offloaded in front of the Sector Naval where they have been incorporated into their beachside entrance. This year the logistics of getting the pilings to the pier by road is presenting problems that require some creativity to overcome. We were told they would be closing Juan N. Álvarez street after midnight to bring the new pilings in.

Midday on the Playa Principal.

A timeless scene from Zihuatanejo, except for the missing pier.
