Once again my neighbor and I visited the Saturday Market to sample some of the delicious food that is prepared there. This time we were prepared with out own coffee cups, and take out dishes to reduce waste and following the principle of reuse and recycle. My purchases for the day consisted of a
pretty hanging pot of ivy made from recycled material, that will never need watering. Some local honey, a pasta salad that was not only tasty but healthy, 2 Championes tamales for the Senor and a small but thoughtful gift for a graduating granddaughter who like to journal.
But that was only the beginning of my shopping. We had planned to go see “Revenent” in Ixtapa and I wanted to stop at the MicMac shop for a pair white slacks. Well 3 pairs of pants and a dress later we had spent most of our cash as they offer a 15% discount for cash. Next we stop for an ice cream and then on to the movies. I guess we are used to movies prices in Zihua, but they were almost double what we expected so after buying our tickets, 1 popcorn and soda to share and carefully putting aside 20 pesos for the bus ride home we were down to out last 4 pesos. As we waited for the movie to start we kinda grumbled that we would only go to movies in the future on the 2 for one nights or only in Zihuatanejo when it dawned on us. We were actually grumbling about 180 pesos
which is about $10. Try doing that back in the States. Then we really got to giggling because our only real complaint was ourselves, and our own lack of being prepared. So with 4 pesos in our pocket we got back to Zihuatanejo, hit the ATM and had a lovely dinner at Don Memos. Signing off KO
