Last week, I returned from Asia to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I began an self imposed Corona-tine. I binged watched Tiger King and episodes of Narcos with my nephew, a Fulbright scholar who was studying in Brazil when all hell broke loose. His govt funded program got hit with the virus, too. Since I was doing that, I didn’t post these mini videos. The first is of street-side pancakes in Vang Vieng Laos, filled with nutella and bananas. About a buck. Serious yum.
This video is more disturbing. I was a bit freaked out about the casualness of border control in the USA when I landed in Texas on March 23rd. Need I say more.
Laos still only has eight cases of Covid-19.
