February 1 and 2, 2011
We are in Zihuatanejo! Hot sun, beautiful sand beaches and towering white hotels. We are close enough to Ixtapa that we could be there as well…i didn't realize that they were so close together.
It's 7:00 and we slept these last 2 nights with the window wide open listening to the sound of the surf crashing….puts you to sleep right away. We spent 2 days here lounging at the pool and taking short walks to the tourist areas….strange but all of us want to get back to the real Mexico and leave this tourism behind.
Tourism is way down this year and most of the restaurants are empty…sad to see and i'm sure it's due to the bad press Mexico is getting. We have had nothing but wonderful people, excellent food and a lot of fun. Almost everyone we talk to can speak english and is friendly and willing to show us their homes.
Once back to Toronto we have thousands of pictures and video to post…we still can't upload from any of the hotel log ons...
