Mexico: Bloggers' reflections on swine flu shutdown

Mexico city shut down

Jesus Chairez is bored of the swine flu shut down in Mexico City, but Daniel Hernandez, creator of Intersections, is glad to be back after taking a few days rest from the capital. 

Joy Hepp, author of Chilangabacha, went to the open air mass at the Basilica de Guadalupe:

"The outdoor mass is only one of the ways Chilangos have so far adapted to their new circumstances."

Meanwhile, freelance photographers Deanna Dent and Vanessa Able both spent Friday wandering the capital's quiet streets.
