The new water and sewer lines have been buried. The new paver stones have been put in place. All of the speed bumps they originally added to Avenue Guerrero have been demolished. Sidewalks have been widened, the better to be ignored by tourists.
While all of this was going on, the street was closed and navigating around downtown on anything that had wheels was a nightmare. Parking? Don't even think about it. The municipal lot was blocked off from public access. One had to park where one could and make your way on foot to the grocery store, hospital or pharmacy. Or restaurant or night club!
They actually did a pretty good job on the street. It is wider now and it helps that they have banned all parking from the street. Usually this stretch of street that you see above is lined with cars, trucks, motorscooters and/or golf carts. Not now. They gave us this:
It is the new municipal parking lot, located next door to the new La Luna night club. I have parked in this lot exactly twice since it opened. In fact, you can see my little red car in the picture above. Right next to where the tourist on the golf cart is trying to squeeze in and block me from opening my doors. In fact, that is why I don't park there anymore. People park every which way. Sometimes even right behind you and go off to who knows where on their business. Last time I parked there I got into a yelling match with a pickup driver who pulled up right behind me and started to get out of his truck. All the while my car was running and my back up lights were on. I just don't want to have any more altercations so better to stay away.
I hope that the city paves this lot or somehow puts lane markers down so people have some idea of where and how to park. If I could only run for Mayor!
