I must say I'm enjoying covering this Swine Flu Pandemic because it gives me a reason to go to Mexico. It's been fun and a nice reminder of why I got into this biz as I've been doing a lot of street photography around Tijuana. I still think it's so cool that I can be in a totally different world within 20 minutes drive from my nice, comfy, sterile home.
Quick update on the overall vibe around TJ in regards to the Swine Flu. There is still only a small portion of the population that are wearing masks. I'd say maybe 10 percent max. Some vendors are even capitalizing on the situation by selling surgical masks. From what I see and hear, they're making a killing. People seem calm and almost humored by the whole thing.
