Unfortunately we had to make the call to not go back to the US for the time being. Not sure when we'll be able to go back, but it's been delayed indefinitely.

We're all really disappointed. It was the "right" decision, but it really sucks.

Thanks to a certain orange President, a U.S. passport will not get you into many countries these days.

Oh we're in another country. Our visas even got renewed without any real issues (aside from the covid-related backlog), but we would not be able to re-enter if we were to leave.

Yeah, we Americans are going to be pariahs for a while. Traveling by plane is risky right now. I was concerned for you when you indicated you'd be doing it for such a long trip.

Apparently elections have consequences.

The long trip, our inability to come back here (where our stuff and lives really are right now), and the general higher risk of being in the US all played into our decision.

As disappointed as we are, I think it's even rougher on my family, who were all really holding on to it as an anchor. My sister and her family are in a particularly Trumpy part of the country and neither of them really missed any work at all, or did for very little time. My parents moved just before lockdown, so they haven't even had a chance to build a life at all in their new location. Plus this summer is my parents' 40th anniversary, and we had a getaway planned. As much as we are grieving the loss, our families are taking it worse.

It's all just terrible. It's really shot my will to do much else besides exist at this point, though at least when I do that I am with my family and we are still safe and healthy.

I just wish people cared about other people more.

@Nate
I am so sorry you had to make that difficult decision. I feel that the most difficult thing to bear right now is being separated from family. I am so envious of people who live closets most of their family members.
