Just been to FL and NYC. In FL you see the occasional boomer wearing a mask, and restaurants sometimes force the employees to wear one. Otherwise no masks. It's like the plandemic doesn't exist.
NYC had about 50% mask wearing outside. The vax pass thing was a non-issue where I went. You could have shown them a cigarette pack wrapper for all the time they bothered to look at mine. Went to a private art show with a lot of rich boomers, not a single mask in sight.
If you want to pretend China/Korea while waiting for Japan to open come to Flushing, Queens. Everything is in Korean and Chinese; inside the shopping malls you could almost convince yourself you are in Asia. Not the best for Japanese, there's a Teso and a J-Mart but that's about it.
