Not the wine and cheese I want

Coming back from Mexico 2 weeks ago I was hoping things in the US would be getting better. That is not that case,the pain in the ass “Karen and Kevin’s” decided to open the country way to soon. In Nevada the amount of Covid case’s had doubled since the opening of the casinos and its worse in Las Vegas.

Karens

I thought about what I have wrote so far and was thinking “spoiled ass American” there are a lot more people worse off then I am during this bullshit. The point I’m trying to make is that we (US) could have done a better job at slowing down the progress and spread of this. I don’t mind having to wear a mask if it helps.

Now back to me, so my family has decided for me not to go back to work and my wife is working remotely for the foreseeable future. And I would love to do this someplace that is note home,but the rest of the world saw and is seeing the US numbers go up and are refusing entry. Italy where I was going to in march was shut down. They closed for a month and then started letting visitors back in slowly. Now residents of the EU came come and go as they please but if you have a US passport sorry don’t even try.

Entitled Americans suck!

Catalonia Playa Maroma

So It’s been a long time ( or at least what feels like a long time ) but I have a plan to get the hell out of the country on Thursday. We have had this trip to mexico planned since it looked like they were opening Mexico and now 3 days away the US numbers are up. US from what I’m seeing seem to think everything is all fine and good “Fuck heads”.

The pool

We did make it into Mexico on American Airlines and the planes had a lot more people on them then I thought would be there. You know airlines profit before safety. All the stress I was feeling or should I say anxiety about making it was gone.

The beach

The resort check in was fast, we had been to this resort before years ago. I didn’t remember to much about the first visit it was so long ago and only a few days. The room we got was one with a ocean view and a private pool. Anytime you have the option get the private pool.

The room pool

We were up on the top floor ( no lift ) and the view was wonderful. The resort only had a few people in it the day we checked in. And it looked like they checked out they next day. We had all the beds next to the pool and most on the pool to ourselves. I did forget how the heat gets to you on the first day so we had to head back to the room during the hottest part of the day.

The pool

The pool is a odd one with a lot of changes in depth up to about 9 foot in some sections. The staff had so little people to serve they got used to what we drank and who we were. Soon as the bar opened at 11 they sent over drinks without us asking. Everytime we wend to get something to eat they had temp scanners and kept a record. The food and service was awesome I hope we can go back soon.

At a Bar…

I could not take it anymore and gave in and went to bar for a pint or 2 or 3. Makes it sound like I needed it, no I just found out the pub down the block was open to have a seat and have some drinks.It is nice to be out of the house and to see some old friends, its been so long. Every group is at different tables just sitting with the people they came in with and we are way more than 2 meters apart. I am worried once everything is up fully this place will be packed as normal.

Now being from a state that has a LOT of room (Nevada) between cities and even homes,people see to group up at bars and casinos. One of the friends I saw here tonight was so ready for the “restrictions” to be done with and said that Covid was way over done by “the media” and seemed annoyed it happened.

Since I started this post the “casino” part of the bar opend and we got to the pub about a half hour after opening and it was packed. They are only seating so many people at the bar where the gaming machines are so you have to wait in a Q to game. Saw some others friends and it’s nice to be almost back to norm.

Go Outside!

So I was just siting here thinking that I have no reason to go outside for the next few days, we have done the food shopping. The feeling of disappointment set in and I was wondering can I go out to just be outside. Now I know I have been in the house to much, being dispatched from home for the last 15 years now being asked to stay home has me confused.

I have a new car ( new to me ) and I love the sound of the audio in it and I’m sad I have nowhere to go.
