Day 6 in Zihuatanejo...a quick look at the locals

Every day our room is made up-towels scooped up off

the towel racks and our bed remade.

She is invisible as we are always gone when she arrives....

but our pillows are newly decorated with flower petals....

simple petal art....

Jorge Perez is one of the few vendors we have

gotten to know. Most of the locals selling

their wares walk by us and attempt to tempt us....

but with Jorge...we come to him-to talk to him and to admire his art.

An old man walks by....we don't even say hello-

pretty sad...............


A mother and child (not in school) walk by....

the only exchange between us is visual-

a simple shake of my head and they move on..........


and then once again we return to our room to

yet another artistic flower/pillow arrangement....
