Five weeks before our travel date I had a full left knee replacement. I knew it was pushing it but it had to be done then only time we could fit it in. Since I had done the right one several years ago I knew what I was in for and since I was highly motivated to just “kick ass” through the rehab I just knew all would work out perfect.  What I didn’t count on was my knee swelled and has refused to “unswell”, slowing rehab to a minimum and me limping around Zihuatanejo.  Then of course for our first 2 days the air conditioner was out of order and considering that it is hotter than normal it was pretty uncomfortable. Couldn’t just lie around the room icing and elevating as it was hotter inside than out. But now the room is cool and comfortable, JC was able to bring all our storage boxes to our room.

This morning,our 3rd day, I finally have all the suitcases unpacked and out away all 5 of the storage boxes are unpacked and put away and I feel like we are finally at home in Zihuatanejo. Today I will get our cell phones set up, put in for our personal WIFI and get signed up at the gym across the street so I can start resuming full rehab of this ridiculously fat knee.

We did have a pleasant dinner out last night and have run across most of the folks that we know that have arrived early like us.  I’s always great to resume our Zihuatanejo friendships and always look forward to meeting new friends. Looking forward to lots of lazy relaxing time, reading, building up strength in my knee, visiting with friends old and new and generally enjoying the good life that Zihuatanejo offers.  signing off KO

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 love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 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. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.
