El Sexto y Contando en Zih

Schoolchildren with their parents and early risers were treated to a crazy display of drugged drunks howling karaoke this morning at the bar next to Coconuta, and as far as I know they're still at it. Police never responded. Not a peep from the local government. But hey, they're pouring concrete everywhere they can and getting their photos taken with Por Los Niños who apparently still doesn't understand they are being used for political gain. What's a poor downtown resident to do? Where's a good bazooka when you need one?

We woke to cloudy skies and a light rain this morning. Oddly, there were tire tracks on the beach where a vehicle drove out and got stuck in front of Daniel's Restaurant. Since the police have stopped patrolling at night and don't respond to phone calls I guess anything goes now and all the drunks know it. Our poor Zihuatanejo is suffering and severely lacking in leadership and governability. Something we all need to call attention to and demand a solution for if we want to continue expecting to live from tourism, especially the kind with the economic purchasing power we need.

Opinions on these matters are more welcome and useful here than in my e-mail inbox where no one sees them but me, so please speak up if you have something to say.

The mar de fondo and passing storms have severely damaged the piers at Playa Linda (where a huge crack has split the structure) and at Playa Las Gatas whose pier was closed for safety reasons last I heard because no one is maintaining it. A real shame to see things in such condition less than two weeks before a cruise ship arrives. We only get one chance to make a good first impression.

Today is jueves pozolero. ¡Buen provecho!

Scenes like this will always be my favorites. This is the essence of our Zihuatanejo.

Three pilotes can be seen on the floating structure ready to move into position. The Flexifloat has been repaired, so I'm guessing a crane will again be placed upon it as soon as the current weather system passes this weekend.

If you look carefully you can see there are now six pilotes in place.
