Beautiful sculptures are scattered throughout town

A view of Bahia Zihuatanejo from the beach

It has been cloudy and gray since we arrived in Zihuatanejo. Only a couple of mornings and then some late afternoons have we seen the sun shine. But the colors and the people and the activities glow nonetheless.

Our favorite meal has been in the local Mercado – Chile Rellenos made with Cotija cheese – a crumbly, salty, pungent cheese similar to Feta. For less than $3.50US we have bought a meal of the delicious chile accompanied by rice, beans and homemade tortillas.

This is the first time we have seen the market chickens displayed quite like this.

Or, you can indulge in the sidewalk hamburger carts. A hamburger cooked before your very eyes and adorned with jalapenos, ham, avocado, tomato, grilled onion and mustard, ketchup or mayo costs only $3US.
Mamey fruit: taste to me like a creamy sweet potato pie

If we had more time, we could spend months in Zihua.
Local musicians: the man on the left plays the guitar and blows into the bamboo panflute while
kicking a drum with his foot. Now that's multi-tasking!
