Drug cartels and swine flu..

April 26th, 2009 at 03:34 pm

Our vacation to Mexico is under a month away and I have to say, the headlines lately are waning my enthusiasm. So far, Puerto Vallarta sounds fairly isolated from all this crud...but it is very concerning. Needless to say, we are keeping a close watch as this possible epidemic/pandemic develops. Who knew when we planned this trip last year (and my first 'big' trip ever) that we would have to worry about drugs/violence and deadly viruses...gads.

My GS (5) spent the night last night and as always, we had a great time. This morning we are watching cartoons while gramma wakes up with some coffee. The hub is sick, so he is sleeping in.

A short time ago I bought some Classico pasta sauce on sale with a coupon and we used it last was REALLY GOOD. What a nice surprise. I love it when you get a good deal and enjoy it too. Smile

Yesterday was housework and will be grocery shopping and some decluttering and general 'get ready to go back to work' stuff....But right now, its coffee time. Big Grin

    I think I would be concerned myself. So far it seems that most of the reported cases are in Mexico City. But that doesn't mean that it hasn't hit other Mexican cities - it just means that it may not have been reported due to lack of medical facilities, people not going to the doctor/hospital because they can't afford it, or possibly resort towns not wanting to cause a panic.

    Did you get trip insurance in case you do decide to cancel at the last minute?

    One thing to do is have everyone who is going on the trip start making habit of washing their hands *often.*

    More than likely you all will be fine, and the trip will be as awesome as you hope it to be, but it probably wouldn't hurt to make a few precautionary measures.

    Yes, we bought trip insurance, so we would be covered. I will definately be keeping an eye on the events down there!!!

    Good, I'm glad you did. I've never bought trip insurance before, but with the way the world is going, it seems to be a good idea.

    My friends just went on a trip by Puerto Vallarta, and the drug cartel part was fine. Now as for the flu..... good luck, I hope it all goes okay! You deserve this trip! Smile
