Isla Grande - Zihuatanejo - Ixtapa
13 February 2011 | Near Zihuatanejo
After a wonderful stay in Zihuatanejo, we took off for Isla Grande anchorage at 10:25 am on 2/7/11. We stopped for fuel in Ixtapa and then arrived at the anchorage at 1:20 pm. We took the dinghy out and got some great photos of the rocky point of the island. Later we met up with Henry and Jenny on Rapscullion and went snorkeling. JJ was in the bay area and we missed her.
We discovered that there was something wrong with our Banda Ancha connection to our computer. Banda Ancha is the internet service provided by Telcel (which is like AT&T of Mexico). We went back to Zihuatanejo so we could go to the Telcel store in Ixtapa, which involved a bus ride. They told us that they would have to reinstall their software on our computer. If you look at our photo gallery, you will see an unhappy Eric waiting at Telcel after they told him there was something wrong with his computer and they would try to fix it, even though the computer was working when we brought it in. When they finally gave it back to us, they said it was still not working and we would have to fix it ourselves before they would do anything. In other words, we now had a broken computer. We now have no computer until we can get back to the States to take it to an Apple specialist to get it fixed.
