Day Without a Mexican

Deborah Bonello has shot what would appear to be the most boring video ever made - unless you know what a city of 20 million inhabitants is supposed to look like on a beautiful Spring weekend, in which case it's sort of amazing.

You folks need a better press agent.

Are you old enough to remember the former swine flu debacle? (Twenty-five people died from the vaccine.)

Let's hope this is just a scare. Regrettably, Oregon has identified three cases out of 11 probable as of last night.

One of the schools where students are affected is the Oregon Episcopal School nearby. www.oes.edu

Their class had a very brief trip to Mexico which was supposed to be a happy spring break, but ended up being a swift trip home.

Let's hope this all ends quickly.

Warm regards,

I think Mexico city would look just like that even without the flu, since is a "puente" holiday a long weekend, the chilangos always empty the city on holidays.
