With Hurricane Hilary right in front of us following on the heels of two other tropical storms you'd think we'd be getting more rain. But apart from the brief rainshower between Friday night and Saturday morning, it's been slim pickin's for dwellers of Zihuatanejo Bay. And to top it off no city water since last weekend. Since we ran out of water this morning we've got a pipa from CAPAZ on the way thanks to a friend who works there.

I feel like I'm the most fortunate man in the world to have the love of a saint of a woman who makes every day seem like the best day of my life! Sometimes I worry maybe it's all just a dream that I'll wake up from. How did I ever get so lucky? If only everyone could be as happy and in love...

Not long after I posted this we got a nice light rain for a couple of hours that cooled things down and made the plants smile. :-)

I have been very surprised at the cool temps here in La Barra. I thought July was hot and humid but not so much. May was a bit sticky. Great weather for all the visitors from the inland cities.

And,, oh yes, the mosquitos have hatched after the recent rains. And they all know where the Gringo lives with the sweet tender meat and generous supply of blood. My companera and other locals don't seem to be bothered by them.

While on a visit NOB I bought some AFTER BITE and it dries up the itching pretty good; comes in ointment-like tube or stick tube with felt applicator. You can find it in the sporting goods section at WalMart.

Go to local pharmacy and ask for ANDANTOL... Hecha en Mexico for bites and works great for itches and inflamation.. not expensive...
