    Nice trip to Selva Negra. Unbelievable sunday crowd, happy city families enjoying the cool and greenery. Nice to see they have the business because this is one of Nic's jewels.

    Orchid garden not blooming this time of year but nice to see what's there for a possible April trip, but will go weekday. I lived in a town in the US that had weekend tourism and you have to adapt.

    Got home to thick traffic, hospital to entrada de rosario packed but moving slowly southbound lane worse. Only saw one accident, car rearended a car that stopped for a bus that stopped in the main lane to unload passengers.

  5. travel

    Watching the airline situation for gp. If the others open up within a couple weeks some sort of sucky new normal will prevail. right now their websites are all screwed up. Airport reports Aeromex flights from Cancun but their website is silent. Charters?

    Also, anything less than daily flights is really tough to google unless you know exactly which days. Seems Avianca arrives 2 days per week and leaves 2 days. A couple airline websites choked and died when I pushed the "flexible ...
