End of Innocence

I'm not ready to write off Zihuatanejo and I am not sure where safer tourist destinations are.

Well I'm going to Varadero tomorrow and I have absolutely no worries about violent crime or safety there. And I have every intention of cruising around the countryside and giving lifts to any random stranger we come across at any hour of the day or night, and meeting lots of great people along the way. The only worry there is hustlers who try to befriend you with hopes of selling you something or perhaps scamming you but that truly is a risk anywhere you go in the developing world. I'm not writing off Mexico either, just taking a break until things settle down. I think I've learned too much for my own good about Mexico by now.
