Thank you everyone who decided to follow me. :) My total number of followers has increased by 50%, plus I've received a lot of emails from people who've been reading. Even more amazing to me is the fact that my daily hits have been more than 100 per day, although I'm assuming that's only because of the recent violence here. When you google Zihuatanejo and violence, I come up on the first page.
A LOT of my friends have really stepped up in the past day or so to help our cause getting back to the US. I'm so grateful for all your help... I can't even say. I don't know how much good it will do but I'm glad we're trying.
Unfortunately there has been more violence in the past day. Yesterday morning around 7am a police officer was killed outside his home when he was leaving for work. I don't have a lot of details about it because Ibis hasn't come home with the paper yet, but last night around 11am the newspaper megaphoned cars were driving through the neighborhood announcing the latest. I believe it was outside of Zihuatanejo in one of the smaller neighborhoods - I'll post more when I know.
