    That is interesting. Here in the states, a large majority of Latin Americans (not sure if they are all from Mexican descent) won't wear masks. No one wears a mask if I go to a Mexican restaurant for example.

    We are traveling back to AZ for the Thanksgiving holiday today. Will also be attending my best friends wedding.

    So:

    1) I read that as a "thingy with sanitizer they slide the penis through" the first time.
    2) get some weed and chill out. the weed sucks there but it still works.

    This area lives and dies by tourism so I get why they're doing their best to make people feel comfortable.

    With half of NM being latino I've not witnessed any difference in resistance to mask wearing by any ethnic group in Albq.. It's more divided by idiocy.. Haha.

    But, we don't go out to eat or socialize so I don't know what's happening in restaurants. I go from home to work and play golf sometimes. I go to the University course and if you don't wear a mask you ain't playing.

    However, I think it's likely that someone is carrying the virus here at the resort even though occupancy is maybe 50%. We really keep our wits about us and don't touch anything in public areas.

    I may be more at risk in Albq. My business requires that my employees are out on job sites and dealing with the public every day..

    Sorry if post is disjointed... Posting from my phone.

    I think I made a post recently about this sort of thing matching your personality... It still holds true....

    There's no rhyme nor reason. You can enter by air or boat but you can't just drive across for leisure travel.

    We were supposed to be on a 14 night transatlantic cruise out of Spain but it obviously got canceled. So my wife and I did a road trip to Galveston last week. It was nice, we’d never been there before so we explored as much as we could...walked over 12 miles one day.

    Worked all summer at Grand Teton Park, then we spent several weeks going up and down the Oregon Central Coast. So beautiful!

    My wife and I did that some years ago. Worked are way from Tillamook down to Bandon. I have a niece that worked at the aquarium in Newport.

    I've also taken a couple of boy trips there to play golf.

    Love it.

    We went all the way down to Brookings (Calif border). One day we went up to Astoria and visited Ft Clatsop, where Lewis & Clark made camp for the winter. I can see why they hated it; winters are cold and damp ...brrrr.

    Yeah - there are tons of people crossing into MX. Sonora has restrictions in general as their numbers spike, but the border shutdowns have been very narrow - nothing like what is going on with our northern neighbors
