I’m in the countdown phase of preparing for winter in Zihuatanejo. I’m ready, my bags are packed, but my ticket isn’t until Monday the 25th with a overnight in LA. Don’t know what I was thinking to wait until late October to come. Well I do know why, I felt it was important to get as much of my delivery route done by me instead of my very reliable substitute. Going to Mexico has become a family project, son Shawn is doing my route for me this winter, my daughter Jeanette and her cat have moved in with me as will take care of my house this winter and my other son Brian is contemplating a 10 day visit to Zihuatanejo
I’m so excited to meeting up with my Zihuatanejo friends, some I haven’t seen in two years as they missed last season. I have an appointment to get my booster shot on Friday. I’ll be about 5 days short of 6 months from the last shot. One pharmacist refused to give it to me because of those 5 days, hopefully this one will be more compassionate.
I plan to write more regularly this year, COVID put a damper on so many things last year I felt like I had little new or particularly interesting things to report. I did meet many new friends last year and Zihuatanejo is beginning to feel more home like than home.
I am so looking forward to the Dia del Muerta and all the festivities and colorful activities. Halloween has always been a favorite holiday of mine, I loved dressing up and making costumes. But the Mexican Dia del Muerta is quite a different event, a colorful cultural and religious celebration paying respect to departed family members.
Looking forward to seeing everyone, and all the colorful changes in Zihuatanejo. If you see me, stop and say hola. Signing off KO
