Question for Rob

If Mexico is wise, Mexico will ban us for the duration. We are the invaders bringing disease.


If you can pass the health control filters then you are welcome here. Mexico is banning no one.

Walking through the streets surrounding the mercado today, it is very much "business as usual": crowded, smelly, noisy, full of life. Not a face mask in sight.
Are locals ignorant of the situation facing much of the world? Is it Mexican fatalism? Do locals believe the line that the virus can't survive the heat and humidity? Quien sabe? Why are locals so damned happy?
We leave this evening for our small city in British Columbia where, even at the best of times, the streets are almost deserted and life is oh so quiet. Now, with everyone staying home, it'll be even duller.
