A large, black-haired woman wearing a bright blue top and her face covered in sweat, arrived with two daughters plus eight cats and one large dog. She had left her home in Tomatlán at 4:30 AM, driven 2 1/2 hours to Ixtapa, found a disappointed crowd in front of the government offices, read the notice with new location posted, and driven 30-minutes back to Vallarta.

CRUISE SHIP ISOLATIONS - On May 14, there was the unusual sight of three cruise ships, including Holland America´s S.S. Konigsdam, anchored close to the maritime terminal in Puerto Vallarta. No passengers on any of them. It was reported that twenty Mexican crew members were allowed to disembark from one of the ships.
On May 16, Joana Abren Ferreira, one of the crew members of the Konigsdam who had been in isolation for more than seventy-five days, posted a message and photo on FB. Although crew members have been fully complying with all the regulations required for disembarcation and there had not been a single case of coronavirus, they were not allowed to disembark.

GOOD DEEDS: There are many. The Mexican people are resilient and very community oriented. Northerners living here have joined efforts to help people and animals. Support will be needed for months. Weeks ago, I remarked to my good friend Gabriela Garcia that it was unfortunate the virus didn´t arrive during low season. Her response? "We´re Mexicans! We´re grateful we had November, December, January, February and part of March."
