Getting Sick in the VI

Look, it happens everywhere. People get sick. And it appears to be more common around this time of year. But why would this happen in the VI, when we have a tropical climate year around?

That should be obvious.... TOURISTS / VISITORS. The flu, colds, viruses, and more travel very well in people that visit via airplanes. And when it starts getting cold in the States, then we feel it down here. Sickness travels, that is the easiest way to say it.

For the last few weeks, it seems half the people I know have had a horrible cold that doesn't seem to want to go away. And we all blame you Statesiders that embrace cold weather, get sick, and then deliver the sickness to us. But that is OK, we will still share our sunshine and the therapeutic salt water.
