Monday tho 25th, Zihuatanejo, took a full on hit from Hurricane Rick a category 2 hurricane.My plane hit Zihuatanejo soil just about 12 hours later and the disaster was evident, but the clean up was well on it’s way.
Huge tree;s with root balls the size of small Volkswagens were blown over. Large signs and bill boards bent and twisted. And the nice couple who stay on the 3rd floor of my building were rudely awakened when the roof blew off in the early hours of Tuesday morning soaking their apartment and all that was in it. They are now residing across the street while the landlord finishes the repairs that have already begun
I am still in the process of “settling in, Not only unpacking my suit cases and finding places for everything but also locating every thing you put away during your absence, connecting up WiFi, TV and a Magic Jack phone. Still working on the phone and TV.
Made a quick run to the Mega Soriana’s for the basic groceries. There it was obvious that folks had prepared for the storm and that supplies have and will be delayed partially due to the road to Acapulco being closed. The store stocks just about everything one needs, maybe some different brands and many familiar, but a block of cheddar cheese can be hard to come The solution is Adapt!!! Today I’ll go to the Mercado Publico for fruit and veggies, eggs and fish But first a stop at Waldo’s, Zihuatanejo’s answer to the $ store. I need to buy reading glasses as I believe I left my prescription ones at the hotel in LA. I called the hotel from the airport as soon as I noticed the glasses MIA, the front desk gave me a code for their hotel to enter into a site called “I Left My Stuff” and that house keeping would take care of it from there and mail them to my home address if found. If you don’t have a code you can look up your hotel by name. Who knew! Signing off KO
