Dia de la Revolucion

20 November 2007 | Zihuatanejo

Chris and I went ashore early to get to the supermarket. Unbeknownst to us, today is a very big Mexican holiday, el Dia de la Revolucion, or more commonly known as el Veinte de Noviembre. The day is to remember and celebrate the revolution that took place between 1910 and 1920 and is filled with celebrations, parades, etc. On top of this, there was a Carnival cruise ship anchored in the bay, so as you may imagine, the town was a zoo. The parade was really fun to watch - lots of kids in cool costumes and some great choreography.

We made it up to the supermarket and filled two carts and barely made it into a taxi along with our gerry cans that we had to stop to get filled. As luck would have it, the parade was still on so the taxi could not get drop us off on the pier, so we dropped our stuff up a little river and had Andrew come pick us up there in the dinghy. Suffice to say, we made it back no problem.

After a few hours of putting away groceries (I tend to be a little anal about how and where things go) we all went back ashore to visit the mercado for fresh produce. We had a fun time exploring the market and in the end it was Chris that we had to tear away.

For dinner we had some $2 tamales that we picked up at the market - just perfect knowing that we have a lot of good meals (and cooking) ahead of us!

Dick and Susie (Chris' parents) arrive tomorrow around noon and we hope to head out to Isla Grande to spend Thanksgiving.
