By Charles Moon andy lucer0 City Correspondent :----A-CAPULCO, mexico - Well, Senor, it goes this way: Every year about this time I weary of the madcap pace of Seattle life, pack up my shtrts and my data on the Hippie movement, and ad- journ to Mexico, where life is supposed to be relaxed. So morning arrives and you would like to ignore it. A rooster crows; pretty soon all the roosters are crowing. It ts just like the Pacific Northwest only down here the roosters don't crow ".Cock a doodle do!" they crow "Ran Chi Pt Ran!" If you get through the rooster chorus, you still have to get up because the egg man starts rattling the door. / "How many huevos today?" Maybe you don't want any Huevos, but you still have to get up and say "no huevos," and "buenos dias" besides unless you want a reputation for grouchiness. Then comes the bread man with the hard rolls and "pan dulce." After him comes the fruit man - "papayas, pins, naranjas" and the other Vitamin C fruits. Then comes the vegetable man, because, I guess, there actually are people who crave a ripe tomato and fresh parsley at 8 a.m. So, it is a little hard to relax down here because everybody is so busy making sure you are well-supplied and happy. Escape the visitors ,and since you are wide awake anyhow you get your bathing suit on and walk half a block to the beach, figuring at that time of day you should have it to yourself. Sonars a sad mistake. The beach is crowded. You are just testing the water when a 65-year- old lady speaking English with a French twang elects you beach confidante of the day: "Ay, friend, how you feel the water, no? Isn't it jolly7 Mind you lad, I am 15 years in Montreal, and all the swimming I do is in pubs and bathtubs. Why, lad, it is going to take a revolution to get me out of Acapulco." I have decided to join the revolution. Seventh Day Home & School Association TACO FEED 7:30-Sot.
