CAM Cihuatlan 2013

Missed the announcement that the fundraiser was yesterday on the Plaza in Cihuatlan.   However you will find more info and how to support them on their Web Site below.   Great bunch of teachers and some pretty special kids.  Two of my friends have kids there.  School is located in Barra de Navidad.

What is the mission of special education?

 To give access and assistance to children and adults that present special educative needs. Giving priority to those with physical disabilities and giving them a sense of equality, quality of life and the ability to develop their capacities to their maximum and allow their integration socially, educationally and in the workplace.

Hotel Bogavante

The hotel website is rather humorous in their bending of the truth. Of course they are talking to people who don't know the history. They say the hotel opened in 1989 and with a recent remodel they are a totally new hotel. The actual fact is it has been an eyesore since I first saw it in 2000. New construction started I don't know when - but nothing done for 8-10 years. Just cement and re-bar with two floors at the most. So they have finally gotten around to finishing the ground floor and one floor of rooms above.  Still lots of cement and re-bar a few floors above that.

Actually what I wanted to post about was the attractiveness of the first floor, the pool overlooking the beach, the restaurant and some occasional music.  A number of people have really enjoyed their varied and upscale menu and of course the food.  They have also had jazz groups in made up of local musicians, which I hear are pretty good.   I don't get out much at night so know nothing about music schedules or restaurant hours. Really sounds like either or both are worth checking out if you are in the area.
