After 10 plus years in our current apartment we are making a change. We have contracted to rent the new apartment year round. It is a one bedroom, definitely bigger than our current studio. Among the biggest pluses are only one flight of stairs, a cab can pull up to the door. No more schlepping groceries almost a full block from where the taxi stops and then 3 flights of stairs. A cool breeze blows through the apartment so we will be less reliant on the air conditioner and we are still only a block and half from the bay. Oh, it only costs half of what we pay now. Along with the pluses there is a minus or two, we are a block further away from where we are now and our balcony now looks over a street with traffic instead of just pedestrians. We will miss the daily camaraderie of the folks in our building,. While we still only plan to be there 4-5 months we will be able to leave our personal belongings in place, acquire as much personal stuff as we need to make ourselves as comfortable here as at home. It also allows for the possibility that family or friends might want an opportunity to sample Zihuatanejo could take advantage of our apartment.
We are so excited with all the possibilities, but unfortunately we can’t move in in March like we hoped as it is rented March to April so we have to wait until next year to begin feathering our nest. Signing off KO
