Photographer's Note

"I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No,no,no."

- The Beatles

ACAPULCO is Mexico's oldest coastal tourist town. In the 1950s this was the place where Hollywood stars and millionaires vacationed.

Acapulco's reputation is (was) that of a high-energy party town, where one can have dinner at midnight, dance until dawn then relax in the daytime on the beach crowded with sexy bodies in bikinis.

Recently drug-related violence has put a serious damper on all this. A real pity, but we did enjoy the old-time atmosphere of Acapulco. And the famous Flamingos Hotel is a blessing, indeed.

This picture was taken at the Playa Caletilla, which is popular with families who have small children (including yours truly). The white spots are raindrops, they didn't really spoil our pleasant afternoon.

This man rents out tires for the kids to play with.
(Business was kind of slow on that particular day...)

Do enjoy.
