I hussled through Houston's airport to make a 25 minute connection, got on the 9am express jet with 15 passengers and arrived ontime in Acapulco. The plane approached from North Western area so we slowly flew around the entire bay, I think I saw ZZAA's building LOL, and then around Puerto Marques. It was a beautiful ride and I can imagine how a first timer would feel seeing that. I got some great pics from up there and also a great picture of the volcano about 30 minutes by plane from here.
Arrived at the Villa Vera and check in was a breeze...Sign here, sign there, sign everywhere. Unpacked and realized I forgot half of my dress shirts...ugggh. Went to the pool and chilled out a bit, having some Ceviche colima...which is a ball of lime marinated tuna, choppped carrot and celery completely wrapped in avocado. Also had a fruit plate.
I noticed the new signs on the street which are really a nice face lift. Went for a walk/run and surprisingly ran into an old female friend. Said my hellos, she was surprised to see me. Not sure what's surprising about that...I'm always here. Went to Walfart for tequila, water, deoderant (forgot mine), Don Poncho which the cabbie dropped on the street :-( and a bottle of vino.
Later on, I went to CAbrito with my vacation buddy and met up with Rolyn. She had the fish and my buddy and I had our grilled chicken with mole on the side. It was good as always.
Went down to the strip and Paradise had people in it, but was in no mood for the loud, LOUD music and guy on the megaphone so we walked over to La Tortuga because I couldn't resist a little sweet coconut icecream before calling it a night. I know...boring so far, but it will get more interesting especially after going to a hole in the wall bar tonight.
Oh and everyone says I look pale and ill. Thank you...my Mexican friends!!
