IMPRESIONES I – Zihuatanejo Snaps

I've gone on and on here and elsewhere about my wife's and my love affair with Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico. During each winter's stay here, I've posted my visual/verbal reflections in the form of photos, prose...hm-m-m, I think there's probably even been a line or two of what might pass as poetry.

This year, as our precious month here comes to its bittersweet end, I just want to share a few parting shots, impresiones, one would say in Spanish, of why this place, with all its lush colors and patterns, its heady smells, the slow, steady rhythms of its lifestyle, and the warm generosity of its people, touches my heart and soul.

This is the first in a several-part series.

My in-laws spend the winter in Ajijic, by Guadalajara, so I'll look forward to the future posts in this series (and enjoy them just as I did these lush shots) for the insight they give me into their lives, as well as yours.

Happy sun-soaking. :)

Hi Emily -- I'm so glad you liked my photos.
Guadalajara's about 500 mi. northwest of here, but I suspect some of the imagery might be similar. Have you visited them in Ajijic?
