Late Rains in Zih

We had another odd rain in the middle of last night. Great by me, but I know these late season rains can have negative consequences for the crops of some of our farmers, such as the coffee growers.

But the rain made for great sleeping weather. Still have 2 sheets on the bed and still sleeping under at least one of them if not both for most of the night.

If you watched the Mexican news last evening you saw that our new Presidente received a singular distinction from the nation's 68 indigenous groups and its Afro-Mexicano communities. He is the first president in Mexico's history to receive the Bastón de Mando, a symbolic staff of authority never granted to any previous president or leader by the totality of Mexico's indigenous peoples. Quite a historic moment in front of almost 200,000 people who gathered in the nation's Zócalo, Plaza de la Constitución, to celebrate and to hear Presidente López Obrador's speech including his 100 promises to the nation. A fascinating event celebrating not only our new Presidente but also Mexico's indigenous cultures.

What a marvelous time to be a Mexican! :vivamexico:

And a good time to be in Zihuatanejo, too. :vacation:

The wet sand always looks darker. Tourists and local fishermen were out early enjoying the refreshing morning and our bountiful fishing.

As you can see the Vicente Guerrero primary (elementary) school is coming right along and quite near completion.

The downtown streets were still quite damp this morning after last night's refreshing rains.

If Obrador does not do something to undo the damage he has already done to the peso and to Mexico's credit position in the financial markets he may fare worse than his predecessor which is hard to imagine.

Currency markets do not treat socialists well. I wish the press would stop calling him a "leftist" He is a socialist and the peso is going to 25/dollar.

AND he is going to dump money....LOTS of money into a failed state run petroleum business when this business is weak [right now]. It is going to cost Mexico billions and it will not work.
