We´ve just decided that all team here in Mexico is going to go straight back to London after Tuesday´s show.
It´s a real shame as we´ll miss out on the two shows with WFYI, and all the reports we had planned for Obama´s 100 days. Madeleine and Shaimaa will still be there for the 100 days and we´ll have to see what we can do with a reduced team for the rest of the week.
The reason we´ve done this is that everytime I want to say hello or interview someone it´s only right that we say that I´ve just come from Mexico and understandably plenty of people won´t want to get too close to me. It´ll create endless complications, especially for big audience shows like Wednesday and Friday with potentially hundreds of people coming along.
I´m so disappointed but Mad and Shaimaa will do a brilliant job all the same.
We´ll also all be off work for a week as the BBC has decided 7 days quarantine is necesary. I´m just hoping my wife will let me through the door…
