The state's Secretario de Turismo said something interesting the other day. He said he was going to get cruise ships to come here and to use our existing pier. He got angry when pressed by reporters, but the gist is even though money has been budgeted (and allegedly accruing interest in a bank account somewhere for quite some time), apparently there are still no concrete plans to build our new pier, the one that was promised years ago, the one whose construction was supposed to start in March, then May, then June... and now this. This is why Presidente-electo López Obrador won. Because we are sick and tired of this crap, of people in office getting rich while screwing the public.

And of course we already know that no cruise ships will come because the pier is unfit to receive their tenders. This guy Ernesto Rodríguez Escalona has never done anything for Zihuatanejo except lie to our faces. What an ass!

Got some city water today in downtown Zihuatanejo!! :woohoo:

And contractors for either the cable TV company or the telephone company have been laying fiber optic cable on Vicente Guerrero street and others recently. :dance:

Now if we could just get a police force...

Oh well, the weather is great, the scenery is beautiful, the people are wonderful and the food is delicious. Fugg all that other stuff! There is no place else I'd rather be than Zihuatanejo, well, except maybe Pátzcuaro during the summer heat. B-)

Fabulous pictures as always.

The morning clouds have been even better than usual lately, and the lightening behind them has been a treat!

If we weren’t so sala’os maybe we’d get some rain. B-)

But hopefully not too much until the ayuntamiento fixes the huge hole in the wall of the pluvial canal, which once again is dry and perfect for reparation.

Pier Followup

Someone needs to bring the state's Secretario de Turismo up to speed. The state government's Secretario de Desarrollo Urbano y Obras Públicas says work on the new pier should start next month, so that would definitely rule out any cruise ships planning to make any port calls unless they use the pier at Puerto Mio, which didn't work out too well the last time they tried it.
