Still sailing down the Mexican west coast. This time we enter one interesting citywith an interesting name: Zihuatanejo! You might have heard of it in the film “Shawshank Redemption” (Frihetens regn in SWE/NOR). This is the place is determined to go and live in after he gets out from jail. So to describe the city very short; the city side closest to the ocean is very pretty, nice street and shops, calm mode and a lot of tourists and love couples. The nice part is, if you just go two blocks further back you also get a taste of the more real Mexico, Streets crowded with locals selling interstning stuff from every corner and maze like markets with some new smells 🙂
We where in need of diesel! Because of lack of wind problem- that is a problem when you´re trying to sail a sailboat- we have been forced to motor a lot. Diesel is pretty cheap here (from a Scandinavian perspective) but Windsy is big girl so we use quite a lot so it ends up not cheap at all (!). There is no fuel dock fitting Windsy here so fuel run is made this time by our amazing guys Capitan Mike and Frederic. The girls went for the market in the meantime getting lost,buying groceries and secret santa gifts. The water here was so warm!! Not cooling at all.. We enjoyed the little time we had here!
