Retired american presently living in Tequis. I have spent the past 10 years living in S.E. Asia mostly based in Bangkok. I came to the U.S. to visit family in N.C., Al And Ca. I planned to visit a friend in Tequis in March for 2 weeks and travel onto Puerto Vallarta. While I was here in Tequis the pandemic started to increase and there was no transportation to Puerto Vallarta so I decided to stay here in Tequis and wait out the virus. I'm still here Ha Ha Ha
