Extra Pesos in my Pocket (while at the Beach)

When our light went officially to yellow, it was announced that hotels could use their lounge chairs if they were 3 meters apart. We are not currently officially on yellow.

We sunscreened up, grabbed our chairs and an umbrella and went to the end of our beach access between The Thompson and Villa Mexicana at the mercadito. We were prepared to walk through the disinfecting tunnel.

As we approached, the guy saw us coming and explained the no chairs no umbrella rule. We very politely told him about what we had read on Meganoticias. He made two phone calls, and explained that that was only for hotels, and that we were not yet able to bring out our own chairs and umbrella. We asked him to pursue that, he made another call, they said they would get back to him, and we thanked him, walked home and washed off the sunscreen.

We live here and are very visible on the beach in the mornings. He knew us by sight, was very nice, made phone calls and tried to get us on the beach.

We "know of someone" who is out there daily, and with a little trading, can now take his/her little non unicel ice chest to the beach and use a vendors chair and umbrella, serving as their translator. More power to him/her, we live here forever and don't want to do that. At least yet but it is tempting!!!!!
