Thank you, Ivar. I think I will stay in Arctic Norway until the situation is safer, however much I hate not being able to walk...

Thank you for this Ivar. Very interesting and practical. I really appreciate your updates. One of my favorite coffee places in Santiago. My wife and I spent some happy times there last October. Few people around now. I will not travel this year 😷😢

Next, please show having a vino tinto.
Then, ice cream. It will make me feel better and my waistline won’t expand from lack of walking it off!
Gracias, Ivar! So happy for you and for Spain!

the french way
thank-you for this, we will miss the Camino this year. one point most Canadians bank and credit cards have tap to pay, and I am finding many of the cafes, restaurants, and bars here in Calgary Canada have similar protocols in place.

Frances, Norte (twice)and Primitivo, Sureste, In France From home Tours and Vézelay, also Le Puy.
Same as in France, then. Except nobody is paying much attention outside the big cities. And guess what, fewer people are getting ill.
Most people are staying a metre apart and washing their hands. Some are wearing masks. Campsites quiet, road traffic as usual.
