No, no sweets today, but an Indian recipe, cabbage with rice, with a dozen spices. The problem with being blocked at home is overeating. Trying to keep it at bay. A guy here in France run a marathon on his 7 meters long balcony. 6029 lengths, in 6 hours...

Confinement, day 9

When you want to go out, but can't. It's lethally dangerous out there.

European House of Headaches

Not a hospital, but the ECB, European Central Bank in GFrankfurt. Preparing the... after. Won't be easy, headaches a-plenty.

A Monday Mural

Confinement, week 2. Well, he looks bored. I'm not! I have about a hundred cookbooks (never counted them), and with 2 small supermarkets 5 minutes away, I try to diversify my alimentation. What about you, how do you survive?

Lock down, day 2

It's all so quiet... Waiting for an update from Mr Macron tonight. Will it be confinement, like in China, Spain, Italy?

Well... I was supposed to fly to Istanbul for a few days this week... A much needed break. Problem: France is a Covid-19 hotspot. So, a few days ago, Turkey imposed a 14 days quarantine to all coming from France and a few other countries. And then, was night, France was put on lockdown, until further notice. Can't even visit my old mum in her retirement home.
