THURSDAY IS POZOLE DAY IN ZIHUATANEJO

The gathering
The gathering

Last night we went out to eat, my choice of location, as I enjoy pazole.  The best i can do to describe it is a stew of hominy and chicken or pork with many side dishes you can add to it including some seasoning. I removed all the chicken as I don’t eat meat, added a very small pit of peppers, making sure no seeds got in, chopped onion and throughly enjoyed it with a side of guacamole. The senior of course had a steak, I chose Any Y Tamale Y Atole as I think it has the best pazole, many others prefer Rico’s on Pazole Alley, but twice when we have been there I got my food and they lost Doyle’s order and then we end up not eating at the same time. Town seems full of visitors, restaurants are busy but not crowd. We went on then to Pacolo’s for a drink and musica. We were curious who had replaced Steve Calvert who has played there for years and is originally a local “Kitsaper, Kitsapian”. We knew he’d been ill and wouldn’t be performing.&. Normally by 9 it would be standing room only, but not now. Music was pleasant but not the great classic rock and roll of Steve. As we returned to our apartment we met up with our balcony neighbors, other old friends and soon met new friends as we all gathered in front of our landlords Liquor Store, the white chairs came out, the tequila bottle’s came out and the party was on. And all we had to do to get home is climb 2 flights of stairs. I have learned to sip Tequila, none of this slamming shots, here every one just sips and enjoys it, except the Senior he prefers beer, but no problem it’s all available.A fun, friendly gathering on the streets of Zihuatanejo.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
