Travel in the time of COVID
Part II: What could go wrong?
The flight left on time. The trains and ferries ran on time. Isle of Wight was beautiful. London grand. We saw “Hamilton”! It rained every day, but we knew what to do.
We’re in Brussels and catching up with wonderful friends. Parfait.
But Paris could go wrong. Because of the “manifestations,” a Parisian friend of Wesley warned us not to come — lots of anger in the air, and we may not be able to fly out. We’ve been in Paris for strikes before, we decided to skip the longer, meaner version and we’ve rearranged our schedule.
Note to Parisians: Shutting down the country is not good for workers.
One other thing: I’ve got Long COVID, a remnant since catching it around Labor Day. I get winded walking up stairs. I have ringing in my ears. I need more sleep and can’t sightsee all day. I think I’ll start something called the “Slow Fun” movemen
