Apreciando El ZIHlencio

As of today Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 1,076 confirmed cases of Covid-19, 78 that resulted in fatalities, 12 that are currently active, and 911 that have recovered. The downward trend continues, but I expect a hiccup very soon as our damn bars reopen after 6 blissful months of tranquil tropical nights without blaring bars and noisy destructive drunks. I expect that very soon we’ll no longer be able to enjoy soft romantic music such as that above because it will be drowned out by the subwoofers thumping in all the nearby bars as well as the vehicles of their attention seeking clients. Of course I hope I'm wrong.

Under the Semáforo Amarillo local hotels, restaurants, cinemas, sports events and other venues will now be allowed to operate at 60% of capacity. Ha! I expect the local government officials responsible for verification will make a small fortune in mordidas.

So once the numbers start going back up and we go back to Semáforo Naranja in about 3 weeks or so then hopefully the bars will close back down and we'll enjoy some more romantic and restful evenings free from the thumpers.

Panadería La Boquita opens back up tomorrow!

I hope some of you will join me in raising a glass to the memory of Paul Ford who was laid to rest today. Salud, Paul. Que en paz descanses.

For those of you preferring to avoid the "crowds" in Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa, remember that Barra de Potosí, Playa Blanca, Brisas del Mar and Troncones are all excellent getaways with fine lodgings located on lovely beaches. See the vacation lodgings I recommend for all these beautiful places.

After all the days with rain and overcast skies, this just looks spellbounding.
