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?

Sunday, 15 March 2020


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.

Café Atlantico

We have several barges in town, used for theater, cabaret, culture, and... coffee. Soon enough, it will be warm enough to enjoy a coffee in the sun. But not today.

Don't get fooled by my photo, the weather today is truly atrocious. It's called winter, 2 or 3 months late.
