As of today, since April 18, 2020 Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 2,273 confirmed cases of Covid-19 (8 more than yesterday), 185 that have resulted in fatalities, 42 that are currently active, and approximately 1,901 that have recovered. This is looking more like a bump than a spike.

Lots of confusion and surprises in Troncones as many residents found out about the arrival of a second dosis of vaccine without ever having heard of the first dosis that apparently was applied back on February 24. But it looks like all is working out because they will be giving first doses to those who need them tomorrow. Yay!

Not sure how much longer our perfect weather will last. Big fires are creating a lot of smoke in many parts of Guerrero including Acapulco and Petatlán. So far we're only getting a delicious cool breeze out of the north. Had to sleep under a sheet again last night. Brrr! B-)

So they cut down the big tall beautiful palm trees and planted a bunch of small ones. The killing of the tall palm trees was totally unnecessary.

@Z ROB:

What's your & Z Board users take on those floor tile stones?

At the moment, they appear to give a more spacious & a somewhat brighter :brilliant: appearance, as compared to the previous flooring.
That said, once they get walked on and soiled, IF they are not routinely washed (besides rain water), as WASN'T the previous flooring, it probably won't take too long until they turn dark, and the beauty will be lost.

I can't believe they used crappy little pavers.

They are all dyed and they appear to break apart easily. They're simply sitting on top of a bed of pounded sand. Yes, it will probably drain quite nicely in the rain, but I suspect it will require more maintenance than the original adoquín we used to have along the walkway and our streets before they put all the stupid faux brick. And we already know from experience that maintenance is exactly what they won't receive.

I agree the pavers are nice now but will fade and look dirty very quickly. Small pavers are fine for human traffic but we all know that service trucks will soon find their way onto the pavers. The small pavers will not be able to handle truck traffic and soon there will be impression in the pavers like a worn out road with two tracks. Oil dripping, garbage liquid, bla bla bla.

They didn't maintain the previous walkway. All the plants died immediately in the first section they "remodeled" and there is a huge socavón in the now empty garden area by the canal on the east side of the footbridge from the museum. This is what they do. They spend a gazillion, pocket a heapin helpin, and then let it deteriorate for 3 to 6 years and repeat the cycle. It's a huge waste of resources. Meanwhile, we want a hospital. We want a police force and public security. We want publicity that attracts tourists WITH MONEY TO SPEND. And we want to save Playa Manzanillo and make it an Área Natural Protegida.

But folks will play the politicians' game and fawn all over the "remodeled" walkway like all the good little sycophants and agachados do every 3 to 6 years. Me, I'll remain with exactly the same attitude as I had 30 years ago when I told the current mayor's grandfather back when he was mayor: "están poniendo maquillaje a un paciente muriendo de cáncer."
