Lots of changes between last week and this. Folks aren't hugging and kissing when they greet anymore, except the alkies. That might be good. Just kidding. Sort of.

We still have tourists but not as many as we should. I think the ones from abroad should just hang here with us where it's safer.

A group of Mexican businessmen including the president of Inbursa who went to Vail, Colorado together all tested positive. The president of Inbursa, José Kuri, was reported to have been "dead for several hours" before they brought him back to life. Too funny. One of the group came to Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa before going home, but still no local outbreak. We may have dodged a bullet. We shall see.

It's jueves pozolero. ¡Provecho!

Some fishermen had a better night fishing than others.

I think you meant are "NOT" hugging and...?
La Casa Vieja, in Madera, where I've been meaning to have a pozole, seems like it was closed when I walked by there about 1PM.
I'm on a watermelon fast anyway...cuts down on food and food delivery choices...

Spent the day at Otilia's on Las Gatas today. Hardly any people there and the few visitors were virtually all Mexican. Sad to see the locals losing so much business.

The businessman who came to Zihuatanejo from Vail and who tested positive for COVID-19 was Juan Domingo Beckman. According to a statement issued by the mayor, three people in Zihuatanejo who came in direct contact with him have been tested and isolated though they presented no symptoms. Test results are not yet known.

Sending huge abrazos to my friends and all the wonderful people of Zihuatanejo! Be vigilant and diligent, amigos - wash your hands constantly, use disinfectant generously, be relentless in avoiding direct contact with others, no matter how dear they are (that's how the virus spreads). You have a chance to avoid disaster if you take it seriously.

In Seattle, we were afraid but no one advised what to do, because of lack of knowledge and fear of 'upsetting' people. Now we have 74 people dead and nothing to stop it. Everyone here is trying really hard, and local government is doing all that is possible. But we will not catch up. Don't make our mistake.

Zihuatanejo is a fabulous town, a fabulous culture, full of fabulous people. :vivamexico:
