I've known Diana was arriving since last October and I helped her get her rental way back then. Anymore 3-4 months is enough time to forget anything resembling a schedule if it's not part of my weekly life. Basically it's all about day to day. Luckily I have people to remind me if they think it's something important. So I got that reminder mid last week saying she was arriving yesterday about 5PM. I asked Lorena if the family had been to the airport like so many locals haven't .... and sure enough but they did want to go to pick up Diana.
Thought there might be a space issue with the family but dad didn't want to go and teenage son wanted to watch wrestling so off we went with mom and two girls. We got there early so we could maybe see the plane landing .. but only saw it taxiing off the runway to the unloading zone. A good view of the activity from the restaurant upstairs.

Decided not to get pesos at the airport although the machine was working. A stop at Banamex in Cihuatlan only to find the ATM was broken. Went over to the Bancomer machine and it was working with a new screen menu. Non-regular visitors tend to worry too much about the best rate and the safest place to get dollars exchanged ... especially when they first arrive. Best to use the first available source and get some money in your pocket and then figure out the best routine in the next few days.
We were invited to a wedding last night that happened to be on the beach a block away from where Diana is staying in front of Hotel Legazpi in west Melaque. It wasn't going to start until 9-10PM so we decided too tired but stopped for a few pictures of the setting.
