ZIHmulando La Realidad

Zihuatanejo is reporting 38 currently active cases of Covid-19 today, and 2 people are reported hospitalized in the special Covid-19 section of the Hospital General. La Unión currently reports 0 active cases while Petatlán reports 1. Guerrero is reporting 12.8 actives cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the second lowest in the nation.

Big whoopteedoo downtown for the inauguration of the Paseo del Pescador. I skipped it. Lots of people think it's the greatest thing since salsa. They don't miss the tall and shady trees or have to live with the additional heat or worry about the beach now being level with the walkway instead of having the walkway raised as before. I know several of the beachfront merchants and restaurants have a point of view similar to mine. I imagine the sailors aren't too crazy about their new cement wall and losing the breeze. I don't mind being in a minority. When I lived in Florida I didn't like Disney World either and never visited it. Zihuatanejo now looks kinda like Disneyland compared to what it was just a couple of years ago before the pandemia. A damn shame the local tourism authorities resorted to simulating their jobs and mass marketing Zihuatanejo instead of actually figuring out how to safeguard Zihuatanejo's niche market and keep it a place where folks with money come because it ISN'T just like every other tourist destination. But now here we go trying to be something and some place we aren't. A no-win scenario for us.

But I'll continue to enjoy our perfect weather, laid back lifestyle, friendly people and fascinating culture. I still wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
