I spent the morning tidying up Sherman and doing the vacuuming, while Ruth did some baking. Chocolate chip cookies made with coconut flour, and gluten free bread!
After lunch, we took Whiskey for a quick walk, and then Ruth and I walked down to the main street to catch the local bus to the airport. We had many taxis try and get our business, but the local bus costs only 5 pesos (42 cents) for the 5 km (3 mile) trip. Besides, the local public buses in Acapulco are an experience in themselves. Sorry, no pictures this particular time, but with the music blaring, and the horns going and the tassels lining the windshield…it is a cultural experience not to be missed!
Made it to the airport around 2:00pm, and Alex’s flight was scheduled to arrive at 2:22pm, and it did. He flew New York City to Houston, and then had a three hour wait in Houston for his flight to Acapulco, so he had a long day. Plus, he was out partying with some friends in New York over the weekend. So we figured he’d probably be a bit tired. Anyhow, a flight arrived from Dallas just before his flight arrived, so of course that jammed up things in the customs lineup. But he's here, safe and sound!
We walked out into the Acapulco heat and crossed the road to catch the local bus back to the trailer park. First thing he wanted was food, and second thing was a nap. He got up again around 6:00pm, and Ruth made his favorite meal….chicken enchiladas! Mom sure knows how to look after her son!
And that’s it for today….just relaxing this evening and catching up with our son. Tomorrow we are leaving fairly early and heading about 130 kms (80 miles) south of here to Playa Ventura, a little secluded fishing village with a fantastic beach. Probably spend a day or two there. It’s about 7 kms (4 miles) off the main road, so not sure if we’ll have internet or not.
Speaking of internet, the first month on our cell stick expires on Wednesday at 11:00am. Tried to buy a card today to renew it, but they were sold out! Hopefully we will come across another store between here and Playa Ventura, otherwise we won’t be able to renew it until Puerto Escondido.
