No, we did NOT set our clocks ahead an hour, so if you are here and you did you are off time.

Our banks were unexpectedly closed today as were many other businesses due to the Paro Nacional de Mujeres. The Marcha de las Mujeres yesterday was peaceful here in Zihuatanejo as it was in most of Mexico and around the world. I only heard of a few instances of violence in Mexico City including of a photographer who got burned by an assh0le with a molotov cocktail.

Our weather of course remains perfect, though a smidgen warmer during the slightly longer days, but the cold fronts keep stalling out without passing over us. Aren't we lucky?

If you haven't been downtown to see the Carnaval decorations come have a look-see.

No puedo creer que cometieron de nuevo este mismo error del diseño del muelle que tuvo antes. Este lugar detrás de la caseta va a ser un defecadero y apestar de orina igual que fue antes por las mismas razones.

Lots of sailboats and yachts in our bay. ¡Bienvenidos! Please remember not to empty bilges in the bay.

You'd have to ask them. I imagine our sheltered bay is a popular stopover for them on their way back north as the end of the winter vacation season comes nigh.

My sister in law, who is a serious sailor, told me that many people put in there before heading to Hawaii (or anywhere out that way), to supply up and await favorable weather forecasts.

The decorations throughout the first block - very "under the sea" - and beautiful!
