Amor ZIHncero en Paraíso

As of today, since April 18, 2020 Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 2,110 confirmed cases of Covid-19 (same as yesterday), 169 that have resulted in fatalities, 23 that are currently active, and approximately 1,783 that have recovered. Let's hope this downward trend continues. Most people continue recovering at home and not requiring hospital care, but a lot also never seek medical care so the actual numbers are likely 2 to 3 times higher. Even then, for a population of around 130,000 we aren't doing too badly, especially considering the already poor health of so many people.

We lost three more trees in the garden in front of our house today, trees the workers promised wouldn't be touched, and all the rest have their roots exposed and have been without water now for about 4 months. My wife gave'em hell. The story along the waterfront isn't much different. It'll be a miracle if no one gets hurt by a falling tree when the first big storm comes with heavy winds. Remember to be wary of the trees if you're on the waterfront this summer or fall while it's windy. Most of them lost their roots on at least one side if not more.

The only news we have about the vaccines is that we may have news next week about when they could arrive. Hopefully they are planning carefully so that elderly people aren't left standing or sitting for hours in the sun like they are for almost every event where for which they are summoned by the government or a political party to receive something.

Delicious ice cream! They started out riding tricíclicas and developed them into these motorcycle-driven carts. A terrific adaptation!

My heart skips a beat whenever I see one of those Honda 125/150 motorcycles, in all their various incarnations. My first bike was a used Honda CB125 back in 1981 with only 400 miles. The basic design has barely changed in these 40+ years. They don't sell them in the States anymore but they are still sold worldwide. Thanks, Rob!
