  • A good look at Puerto Escondido My time in Puerto Escondido is dwindling away rapidly. So I need to take a good look around. I'm in the northwest part of town. I've already been in the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 27, 2015
  • Playa Zicatela Left just after 6am to check out the Zicatela area (southeastern part of town). Short story is that it's like the rest of the town: neither fancy nor shabby. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 28, 2015
  • Prepping to move Went to class this morning. Dropped my laundry on the way. I had to get a document on my thumb drive printed; after I filled it out, I needed it scanned back onto my thumb drive. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 29, 2015
  • Last look at Puerto Escondido Got up at 6am to find out when the bus runs to Oaxaca. Went to the first bus station: no one there. Walked to the second 'bus' station: it's only vans. Walked to Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 30, 2015
  • Back to the beach Got up at 7am, showered, packed. Took my time 'cause I wasn't going to make the 8am bus. Left at about 8:15. Walked one block to the main street, grabbed a cab. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 1, 2015
  • Troncones - no way Went to where I was supposed to take the bus to Troncones. Asked the first driver I saw and he waved to the street behind me and said three blocks. I go the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 18, 2015
  • A morning in Ixtapa Best I could do for sunrise. Got an early start. Only open shot I could get at sunrise; then the sun was blocked by buildings. Got on the bus to Ixtapa Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 19, 2015
  • Fun in Acapulco -- not My 'Acapulco Experience' began yesterday, with the bus driver: only five of us got on the bus, two of us with items that needed to be put underneath. The guy in front of me waited by the bus Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 20, 2015
  • Giving up on Acapulco So I messed around in the morning trying to decide what to do with my day. It's Sunday, so there's always football, even if the commentary is in Spanish. I did some computer research, and, really, other than Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 21, 2015
  • Long ride Got out early so I could catch an early bus for the 8 hour ride to Puerto Escondido. There aren't any beach towns, or anything else to see or do, in between. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 22, 2015
  • Nice digs Got up early enough to get a sunrise pic, but ,as you can see, still too many clouds; same problem in the evening. Did a little blog work (mostly very slow Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 23, 2015
  • Decent day Temp and humidity in the mornings has been in the low 70s. I figured as I kept going south that it would only get warmer. But PE has been really nice temp wise. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 24, 2015
  • Lots of closed restaurants After a shower, I went and checked out some other hotels. It’s too hot to sit in the lobby (not even a fan) to do internet. Found another place Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 10, 2015
  • Work day Went out for my morning walk: about 2 mi down the beach to the river, then up to the main road and back to my room. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? It took me an Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 11, 2015
  • From Playa to Lázaro I’d seen all there was to see of Playa Azul. Except for the ocean, there’s not much going on or interesting. So I took a combi Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 12, 2015
  • Another internet failGot out about 5:30am. Temp was good humidity was less than it has been. Went for a long (about 3 hours) walk, starting out along part of the lagoon, and going down to the port. There’s a Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 13, 2015
  • Eating at Bogie's Began the day by waiting for the laundromat to open: about 30 min. Lady said my laundry would be ready at 3pm. I put everything in the wash except a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 16, 2015
  • Too warm out Got out at 6:30. Took some 'aerial' views of Zihua from a pedestrian overpass. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 15, 2015
  • Recovery Lazed around in bed for a while: kind of hungover, I think. Did some internet research: trying to figure out my next move. Hate to leave here and lose my internet. But I'm all caught up Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 17, 2015
  • Forget about it Got up at 0500 so I could walk the city before it got too hot. Less than 15 min after starting out, I'm getting sweat build up. It's not the temp, it's the humidity, and lack of Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 7, 2015
  • Looked at Barra de Navidad Slept well, with the fan on medium. Woke up just before sunrise to take pics. Five minutes later, this family of twelve starts running around like idiots. It’s not even light out Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 6, 2015
  • Side trip to Manzanillo Ever since I left the PV area, the mornings and evenings are mostly overcast or hazy - no nice sunrises and sunsets. Clears up nicely afterwards, just to make it hot and humid (and if you think I Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 5, 2015
  • Shanty town Out at 5:30. Tortilla factories have to get an early start to fill the orders from restaurants, street vendors, and mom and pop eateries. Checking on where the bus stations Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 14, 2015
  • Bus doldrums Finding a bus to get out of town can be a lot more difficult than it would seem. IF you can get online, how do you look it up? A bus terminal can be 'terminale' or 'estaçion' Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 8, 2015
  • So-so beach and townSlept for a couple hours on the bus, but I was too uncomfortable to do more than rest. It rained for a couple hours just before getting into Lázaro Cárdenas. The bus ride was about 8 1/2 Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 9, 2015
