The rain keeps teasing like a high school date without actually giving up anything. A little sprinkle here, a little sprinkle there. Just enough to give the dust something to stick to. It's been cloudy for the best part of 2 days, and we've watched rains head one way and another, but downtown Zihuatanejo remains sala'o with neither rains nor city water. But hey, we got a couple of new garbage trucks and 4 new police cars this week. Now if only we had a complete police force.

After a brief lull while everyone went home to collect their paychecks for the quincena, the tourists have returned, though they still don't appear to be buying anything except from the wandering vendors. Restaurants and shops are all complaining about the lack of sales.

Meanwhile this week the municipal government celebrated a massive lactation event at city hall. Stuff that makes you go :wtf:

This was a lovely sight during our morning stroll.

This scene shows a turtle nest in the foreground that's had its eggs removed by poachers, and a fisherman with a net on the beach being watched closely by pelicans and frigate birds.

This was a pretty scene from the pier last night.

A lactation event at city hall? Please elaborate, not necessarily with pictures...

A bunch of mothers get together and breastfeed their children unashamedly in front of curious onlookers of mostly men. Sounds like a PARTY, dude! :dude:

So, how soon do you think they will start using those new garbage trucks???

On Playa la Ropa, we have had lots of turtle nests. The doggie cop digs up some, as he did again this morning. We'd love to find out what he is doing with the eggs, but since he has given us a hard time lately, we hesitate to approach him.

Does anyone know?

He's not supposed to do ANYTHING with them. Need his name or a photo to investigate the matter.

We'll take cameras tomorrow. Several times we have seen him put some in a bag, but we haven't seen where he goes with them. He is doing it most days now, and is talking to the employees at the hotels while he is doing it. Today, in front of the Villa Mexicana, Thursday, right in the middle of the Viceroy near the bar.

Hopefully this is a legitimate activity.
