Zihuatanejo, Mexico, el veinticuatro de Febrero, 2020

I had a great day!  I’m happy to be saying that too because when I first got here, I thought three weeks was a big mistake.  I may change my mind as time goes on, but today was awesome.

After breakfast I walked to the pool and swam ONE MILE!!!  It took me about an hour, I’m no speedster and I do four different strokes - breast, side, front crawl and elementary backstroke.  I find they use different muscles and that front crawl is the one that provides the cardio.  I had developed some old lady wrinkles on my biceps from doing absolutely nothing the last few months and they are gone - or at least I can’t see them!  I hope to swim as far every day this week.  There was a man in the pool when I got there and two others came during my time so it’s basically my own private place-

After swimming, I caught a couple combis to Playa Ropa where I sat in the sun for 3 hours.  I visited with people from Yorkton, Cochrane and San Diego.  At 3, I came home for lupper and then got ready for ‘work’.  I had 12 student this afternoon, some who came last week and some new ones.  It’s quite hot in my room because the air conditioning unit is far too small but we survive.  It also gets really noisy about 5:30 with loud music playing while there are dance workshops going on elsewhere in the complex.  In front of the main stage is where there are Often Zumba classes but there were none today.  The centre is quite a hub for families and their kids-

After class I wandered down to the beach.  They have a brand new Malecon-

that starts at Playa Principal and goes past Playa la Madera-

The view back to Playa Principal is nice-

and so is the setting sun-

Tomorrow will probably be a repeat of today.  Things are great and time is flying!
