Relatives of mine went to Acapulco about 40 years ago - at the time they had to have armed hotel guards to protect them if they went outside of the resort. Armed guards also patrolled the hotel boundary and kept an eye on the beach. They had a fab time though by all accounts
But, never having gone there mysel, I ended up hating the place due to those endless property programmes where Brits go to buy a house or second home overseas. For a while it seemed that nearly every week they were doing a programme on Brits buying homes in Acapulco. I can clearly recall one lovely blue house over-looking the sea that simply looked a delightful place to live. It had pinkish terracota pots hanging outside full of the most beautifully coloured flowers.
Having just watched a Sky News report on Acapulco I now learn that it is a war zone with the US government advising tourists to stay away from the area - apparently the tourist iindustry collapsed some months ago.
I wonder what happened to those people who bought holiday homes there?

Russia could cause "thousands and thousands and thousands of deaths" by crippling UK infrastructure, the defence secretary has warned.
Gavin Williamson told the Daily Telegraph that Moscow was spying on energy supplies which, if cut, could cause "total chaos" in the country.
He said it was "the real threat... the country is facing at the moment."
me thinks they are looking in completely the wrong place for the enemy.
Are they really stupid or is this jet another attempt to obfuscate?
