Mexico - July 26th

Acapulco to Zihuatanejo

Two or three police roadblocks set up along the coast today. Federales in full gear building sand baged gun placements.

Zihuatanejo has a split personality. The hills east of the bay are covered with expensive resorts. West of the bay live the fishermen, under the palms and mango trees. The zone between the two is filled with tourists and t-shirt shops and margarita bars and good seafood.

The Hostel Rincon del Viajero, west of the bay, set in a lush garden, is home to travelers, huge land crabs, iguanas, fireflies, and geckos.
