The rather oppressive heat and high humidity have everyone moving very slowly and staying in shady areas with a breeze. A few tourists are starting to show up for the summer vacation season, but next week is when we expect the floodgates to open, so to speak.

I'm upset that once again there is a huge beach concert planned in Ixtapa on the beach precisely in front of where the captive dolphins already are forced to suffer their existence. With their acutely sensitive hearing the incessant BOOM pooka BOOM will be sheer torture for them. I again tried bringing this problem to the attention of concert organizers and local authorities and asking if they could simply move the event 200 meters in any direction up or down the beach, but they simply ignore me, and even worse is that apparently NONE of the potential concert goers even cares at all. Only several other locals like me. I can't help but feel that humans behave mostly like a disease on this otherwise marvelous planet.

Lupita continues matching needy people with donated glasses day after day. We all thank you extremely generous folks who make this possible. And Lupita again asks for the kind sold cheaply at drug stores, what you call "cheaters". Those are the ones easiest for her to match folks up with since many prescription glasses often have different graduations for each lens.

This abuelita and her nieta both want to send you a huge heartfelt ¡GRACIAS!

Out and about in Ixtapa. This is where Rodrigo y Gabriela's Raíz de la Tierra restaurant is across from Catcha L'Ola surf shop at Plaza del Kiosko.

Seeing the picture makes me sad. Every time we stay at Pacifica and walk over to enjoy the small pedestrian streets to have lunch and shop, the little places going out of business and destroying the owners dreams. Because of the small clientele there just not customers to stay in business. Can't forget the first time in January of 1999 staying at the Dorado and exploring the walk ways to have lunch or dinner. About the only meals we at the Dorato was breakfast. Each day was a new discovery. That was the reason we bought a week at Pacifica- life has never been the same since. Have only missed 1 year since that was in 2016 when Kathie fell and broke her back. Villa Mercedes and Pacifica let us book our weeks and came down for 4 weeks instead of 3.

Last season Ixtapa was much busier and there were some empty spots occupied.
There are more flights from Canada than before. '
