The warmth of Zihuatanejo is not measured on a thermometer but in the bright smiles and courteousness of her inhabitants. It is a warmth generated from deep within the heart and soul of a people with simple needs and simple wisdoms passed on through an ancient culture still very much alive here. It tingles and vibrates within you every time you make a new friend here or greet an old one.
The warmth of Zihuatanejo is a metaphysical presence that transcends time and space and can warm your heart by simply saying its name or remembering a friendship or a heartlifting experience or a special moment from here, like seeing the face of a child in his or her traditional garb for a special day like the ongoing Guadalupana celebrations and pilgramages, or hearing the emotional music of a balada sung by a trio on the beach as you dine under the stars after a colorful sunset, or taking a siesta in a hammock in the shade by the ocean and forgetting what day it is (don't try this at home, kids).
We all have had those special Zihuatanejo moments when we encounter something new and wonderful or something pleasurable that we didn't expect, when we realize we can let down our defenses (and pretenses) and just be ourselves as if among family and old friends, and when we begin to see the world with fresh eyes and new hope and love and caring in our hearts.
THAT is what Zihuatanejo is all about and THAT is the source of her warmth.
Is any of it reaching you yet, mi querido amigo? ;~)
