Wow, so no one's talking about this?

I'm definitely not a sensationalist but let's look at it for what it is. It is pretty serious.

How far has it spread? There are reports of school kids in the US, NZ and Canada that may have contracted it. Asia is now on "high alert". This is a very concerning mutation of flu viruses we're talking about.

What do you guys think about what's happening in Mexico right now? Thoughts, Fears? Opinions? Future predictions?

Anyone in Mexico right now?

Stay there and if you give them proof that you got Influenza A while in Cancun they will pay for THREE YEARS of vacations to Cancun for you and a companion.

Proof is some kind of medical certificate that you got the disease up to 14 days after your stay or something


Hooray! We are off to Cancun week after next (pretty much sans spring breakers by now) and will be hunting around to see if we can get the flu. Thee years of holidays in Cancun is just too hard to resist. Question - Do you always have to take the same companion (hope my wife doesn't read this!)?
