Momondo's website usually has deals but you may have to buy in advanceI be goddamned if I spend my last days in a middle-of-nowhere town filled with a bunch of goddamn rednecks whom I can't stand and who don't get me, so I'm going to get a plane ticket and go someplace else.
Any recommendations for getting a ticket somewhere? South America, Asia, or Europe?
Yeah, yeah, I got that covered!
Wait, what about a work visa?
Flights from Chicago to Cancun right now are $67. Imagine it's similar going from other airports near you. Just a thought, it won't ever be cheaper to get down there. Make sure you buy a return ticket as well or they won't let you through immigration!
Cancun itself it a tourist shithole, but nearby there's some pretty cool stuff. Valladolid is a town about 3 hours away by bus and pretty sweet, there's lots of Mayan ruins around as well. Plenty of jungle around if you want to sleep rough, but I've never tried it so can't speak to the safety of doing that. Most hostels will run you about $15 a night. A decent restaurant meal is $5 or so. Not free but cheaper than most places. Keep in mind you won't be able to work and may get trapped down there due to this whole coronavirus thing so if you go make sure you have enough money to survive for a while!
Also, it helps if you speak Spanish but most people in the larger cities there speak English. You're much less likely to get scammed/overcharged if you can speak the language though
It's kind of like that song, you know? "Should I stay or should I go?"
If I go to Cancun, that would be reckless, and maybe even considered cowardly, but my family would support my decision regardless, I could find ways to be useful in Mexico, and I can see new things, and definitely won't be in Tennessee anymore.
It's about caring for yourself versus caring for society as a whole, and the latter is more important at the moment imo. Plus, travel is probably not fun at all if everything is shut down.
On a side note do you think joining the Mormons is a good call to adventure?
Jesus H. Fuck, no! They are bugfuck crazy; 2 close friends are ex-Mormons. I suppose you already know about God's Magic Underwear and getting your dick anointed in church? On the plus side, they will have lots of food, because they all have to have a month's supply stored away.
You might also be interested to know that they only decided black folks are fully human in 1978, and might not be cursed by God after all.
