Once again we woke up to water in our apartment. About an inch covered the kitchen floor. Upon further investigation we discover the source of the issue is in the apartment next door with a leaking intake water pipe. The Senor blocked the flow of water from our kitchen into the rest of our apartment with a large towel and decided to wait until daylight to mop up the mess.
The first year we were in this apartment we had 2-3 inches of water across the entire apartment floor due to a rain storm that had filled one of the balconies that didn’t have a drain. It proceeded to flood all 3 apartments, we swept so much water down the stairs it looked like a real water fall. A couple of years ago friends down stairs woke to water in their apartment that came from the apartment next door to them. A hot water line broke making that apartment look like a sauna. Why is it these thing always happen during the middle of the night and aren’t discovered until morning maximizing the amount of water to be dealt with.
Had a pleasant Friday evening listen to Jimmy Mamou, marveling at his energy. Then we stopped by Legends as we heard music coming from there where a young Mexican fellow was singing good old american rock and roll. He was quite good. But we were home by 11, not much of night owls any more.
We have never been “La Ropa beach people. We have preferred Playa Las Gattas or Ixtapa Island for beach life and swimming. But this year will be different and I don’t have enough bending ability in my new artificial knee to handle the getting on and off the water taxis and we can take the bus to La Ropa. I’ve been going to the gym daily to ride the exercycle, sometimes twice daily but I’ not seeing any noticeable improvement. Very frustrating as it is keeping me from doing so many of the things I enjoy doing.But for ever the optimist I will persevere and see what happens. Signing off KO
