I'll look forward to the visit!!@HobbesOnTour I feel relative safety at the moment is being isolated as much as you can.
You're in the ideal position to do that.
I think (purely from my position here, of course) that you should stay in Mexico, try to find a friendly, remote village where you can weather this out.
Ok, you could get sick, but it's the same here, we are really just hoping for the best, taking precautions, there's no guarantee of success lol
Depending on how the situation develops, you can, in a couple of months decide if to carry on touring or heading back to Europe.
Practice your Spanish a lot, a good grasp of the language will help immensely whatever comes next.
When the pandemic is over, I'll come visit you in the Netherlands or in Ireland, with my bike
That's my first instinct too, to hunker down and wait it out. My current location is perfect for that and I am sorely tempted.
However, taking a longer term perspective, even if the spread of the virus stopped tomorrow there are a lot of issues to work their way downstream, so to speak. It will be a while before a lot of services I depend on (campsites, small hotels, restaurants, shops etc.) will be back to normal.
There is also a multitude of countries on my route and thus far there is little coordination between them. I just read of a group of cyclists being rounded up in northern Columbia and being quarantined indefinitely by the army. Questions answered with a gun! Decisions are made on passports carried, not length of time in the region.
A resurgence of the virus in the winter, for example, could leave me stuck in a nasty situation.
As on another thread here, the reactions of locals to outsiders is becoming uncomfortable, to say the least - and that's in the UK.
On a Facebook forum another poster alluded to the security situation and the risk that exposes foreigners to.
I've just asked my (wonderful) AirBnB hosts about the possibility of storing my bike here, indefinitely, and am waiting on an answer. If positive, I think I will book a ticket to Europe and sit it out over there, returning when it is sensible to do so.
I'm gutted at the prospect of stopping, but I have had such a wonderful time so far, with amazing hospitality it would be a shame to risk it all by overstaying my welcome.
