About San Diego

San Diego is located in Southern California on the sunny shores of the Pacific Ocean. It is very close to the Mexican border. This is a tranquil and ancient city with a warm climate. The long stretches of sandy beaches and clear ocean water make this one of California's permier holiday destinations. Other than the elegant and beautiful seaside landscape, this city is also an important naval base and port. Some of the naval vessels are open to the public or you can take a trip out to sea on a tourist boat. Because of its proximity to Mexico and many citizens of Mexican descent, the city is full to the brim with Mexican style. The many local Mexican delicacies are a must-try, especially burritos, taquitos and enchiladas.

The United States is now the global epicenter for the COIVD-19 pandemic. New York City is particularly impacted with more than a quarter of the country’s confirmed cases. Governors in over than 30 states have issued so-called shelter-in-place orders. Large swaths of the US economy have ground to a halt as non-essential businesses are shuttered and cultural institutions like theaters, museums, and art galleries have closed to prevent people gathering in large numbers. Leading scientists are now estimating the pandemic could kill between 100,000 and 240,000 people in the United States. This shocking assessment means travel and tourism in the United States is nearly impossible for the next 3 to 6 months. Those with plans to travel to the United States should reconsider and those already there need to follow the advice of local health officials and the World Health Organization.

The world today is expertly designed to inject a maximum amount of stress and tension into our lives. Constant social media updates, TV shows and movies to follow, an avalanche of news from around the world…there’s simply too much for any one person. To the extent we’re also bombarded by work, relationships, and family, there can seem no limit to the cacophony.
