As of today, since April 18, 2020 Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 1,711 confirmed cases of Covid-19 (1 more than yesterday), 133 that have resulted in fatalities, 24 that are currently active, and approximately 1,441 that have recovered. Medical personnel in the state continue receiving their vaccinations. No word yet on when those next on the list will begin receiving theirs.

Very few tourists around. The construction on the Zihuatanejo waterfront is keeping folks away from the area, to the detriment of downtown businesses and vendors. Somebody denounced in local media an event with a gathering of around 500 people at the Azul Ixtapa hotel. Such gatherings are supposed to be prohibited at the moment. Not sure why the hotel would throw caution to the wind and risk causing a large outbreak.

Our weather continues to be absolutely perfect. Some rain clouds danced their way through the sierra, but not along the coast. The ocean here remains so calm you could water ski on it. Can hardly hear any waves at night.

Too bad about "American Magic" at the Prada Cup yesterday in Auckland.

Gracias. Favor que me haces.

If you compare it with photos taken immediately after the completion of the "remodelación" of the walkway between the museum and Playa La Madera, you can't help but notice that ALL the plants the government spent a small fortune to place along the walkway have died including beside La Boquita canal, and apparently they didn't pack down the earth in this wall beside the canal because a huge hole has formed on the inside of the wall. This is why I don't buy the crap the city government is trying to sell us about replanting trees they've removed from the garden park in front of our home, and why I laugh at any suggestion of the government planting anything. I recall when 5 or 6 coconut palms were planted at the zócalo after one of the "remodelaciones" a few mayors back. You'd think a tourist town in the region known as the #1 producer of coconut palms in Mexico could grow a few coconut palms in their main plaza. Nope. Not one of them survived.

This is from April 1, 2019. No April fool here.
