Greetings from Mexico! Really. As is often the case, we booked our vacation to coincide with a disaster. We're in Cancun for a week, before heading to Los Angeles for a couple of days. It is beautiful here and (fingers crossed) we're all safe and healthy.
What is particularly striking about this outbreak is that there are just no reliable numbers yet. The media would have us believe it's the end of the world, but the World Health Organization has really only attributed 20-some deaths to the swine flu virus here in Mexico. And none in the US.
So, we're going to continue to enjoy the sand and the sun, until we're told to evacuate or that we've been quarantined.
However, since it's a resort full of gay guys, I'm looking forward to the quarantine drink specials and theme parties.
