Manzanillo, Mexico, el quince de Febrero, 2020

Yesterday was typical.  I went to the pool in the morning and then went to Wally and Sharon’s at 2:30 because at 3, it was happy hour at the Oasis - 2 for 1 margaritas and beer.  Win, win!

Today, I caught the bus about 11 because we were going to Santiago which is just down the street.  Wally and Sharon were waiting at the next bus stop.  Sharon went to the dentist and Wally and I had a couple beer at Gringo’s Corner.  It’s like The Stump Bar in Guayabitos - everyone sits on plastic chairs on the sidewalk.  After, we went for lunch and I had a Michelada Especial-

It’s a regular michelada with shrimp, cucumber and oranges around the rim.  After, we went to the market where the strangest vendors were selling tables and tables of hair bows-

and used tools -

The only thing I bought was an avocado that I had for supper with tostadas.  A shoemaker works out of a booth beside the street-

We caught the bus home-

and I went to the pool.  I have permission to stay in my place tomorrow until 4 pm.  Checkout is at 11 but no one is moving in and the cleaner lives downstairs so she doesn’t mind if I stay late.  My bus leaves for Zihuatenengo at 6:30 pm.  I can’t believe I’ve already been here a week!  Time flies in lovely Mexico!
