As of today there have been 818 confirmed cumulative cases of the Covid-19 virus in Zihuatanejo, 62 of which resulted in fatalities. As of yesterday there were 258 active cases, and 465 people had recovered. Anyone still not wearing a facemask in public places is either just plain stupid or incredibly arrogant. Fortunately the message finally seems to have reached almost everyone, and almost everyone here is using a facemask according to what my wife and I have seen.

Another cloudy evening with threatening skies but no rain. These are some of the hottest days of the year. Remember what I said way back near the beginning of July about the rain.

A big shout out to our friends at La Jaiba Feliz for their excellent service and delicious meals. The local restaurants seem to be adjusting well to the rules they have to operate by, and I think they're giving an extra effort to try to convince folks to use their services. Well, I'm certainly convinced, and I hope more folks will take advantage of the restaurants trying to make a comeback after so many months of not operating. They really need our business now. After hotels, restaurants are one of the biggest local employers in almost any tourist destination. (They sure helped me to get through college.)

Gracias, amigo, but the song I posted was one we used to dance to at El Chololo 46 years ago. Zihuatanejo's old-timers will recognize it. El Chololo was a nightclub at the Casa Sun & Moon Hotel on the beach side that has sat there in ruins since it burned down around 35 years ago. It's owner, Pepe Solórzano, was a friend as was its manager Jorge Tortuga.

I have heard El Chololo was quite the hotspot in the day...and observed those ruins the many times I have stayed at Sol y Luna.
Great history amigo!

¡N’hombre! ¡El atún está rebueno! Y grande. El pilón para los afortunados que reciben sus comidas al domicilio es que viene con postre. Pero no lo digas a nadie. Es un secreto a voces. B-)

Great lunch at La Jaiba Feliz today and as usual the best licuado de melon that only Flor can make!
I also love their choice of jazz music! I encourage all to go and enjoy. Viva Mexico
