Spanish-speaking residents will be happy to hear that Sergio Vázquez Rosas will be back on the air with his program "Zona Libre" on Radio Variedades FM 101.9 beginning this Monday from 9:00 to 10:30 Monday through Friday. The people have their voice again!

What a lovely evening on the waterfront last night. Lots of families and couples out enjoying the restaurants and the lovely laid back ambiance of the waterfront. Yes, that damn bar across from the zócalo was loud last night, but in general things were cool and folks everywhere were wearing smiles and greeting each other, including perfect strangers. That's what Zihuatanejo is all about! Our friend Joaquín at La Porteña was an exemplary host to his clients and we are always grateful for his friendship. What delicious pizza we enjoyed there!

The pier construction is nearing its finish. Finishing touches are being put on the cement work, and the little caseta is almost finished at the end of the pier. The landings were all being finished. Two larger ones for cruise ship tenders on the eastern side, one with a ramp for wheelchairs, and three smaller ones for local pangas on the western side. Thanks to the gracious supervisor and his workers for granting access to take some photos.

More finishing touches to come, hopefully, will be hand railings for safety.
