We have returned from my wife’s study-abroad semester

But we are still enrolled in the STEP (Smart Traveler Enrollment Program) warnings for Guatemala. Below is our latest STEP advisory. The armed Tea Partiers would have a fit if this was tried here but Guatemala doesn’t have nearly the healthcare system we have so the measures are tougher. Also, the president of Guatemala is a real medical doctor, he doesn’t just play one on TV like in the USA.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Welcome home ! Be safe and healthy. Note that there are a LOT of other 'viruses' going around... we've had three of them run through the household, but based on testing of one family member who talked his way into getting tested, we've not seen COVID-19.

Still can't get tested unless we're actively sick as hell with many of the symptoms.

In Mexico, the supermarket where we shopped required customers to wear masks, sprayed the cart they gave us with disinfectant right in front of us, taking special care to disinfect the push bar, and had hand sanitizer available throughout the store. Our local supermarket near home does none of those things. Even in red-state Texas the stores we shopped at did better than our grocery in Minnesota.

(We spent a month and a half in a Mexico City waiting for nice weather to arrive in Minnesota after the Guatemala program got cancelled and was moved online.)
