Valentines Day is huge here in Mexico, but then the Mexican people are romantics.
At 7:30 am on my way to the pool the florist shops had their displays not only in their shop but also outside, on side walks and adjoining alleys and folks were busy shopping. Every regular store was recreated for Valentines Day and the whole bazaar of temporary shops were set up on the sidewalks on the 13th and will be gone by the end of the night on the 14th.
The strolling balloon vendors were every where, and by afternoon cute school girls in their uniforms were all carry either a balloon, flowers or a stuffed animal with big smiles on their faces.
That evening on our way to dinner we passed the church, Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, and mass was being said. This surprised me as having grown up in a very catholic family who never missed a day of holy obligation,we never went to church on St Valentines Day.
We had planned to use one of our dinner certificates from the auction that night but our choice of restaurant was closed. Probably the only one in Zihuatanejo that was. Most were packed.
Our friends and neighbors were at the restaurant next door so we joined them at Sirena Gorda and had a nice visit over dinner. Signing off KO
