Yes, really… 7 weeks! Today (9th) marks two months since I arrived in South Africa as a first stop before flying on to Mauritius for a 10-day beach holiday… Well, you all know what happened!
The talks about opening airports for normal commercial business are vague and July seems to be the earliest that it may happen in Cyprus – we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be halfway through summer by the time I can enjoy a beach again!
However, things have – sort of – settled down in my psyche. We have restarted our Greek lessons online for the time being, and it was almost like taking a step on the road home…
My daughter has settled down in her new rental accommodation on the road to Theletra – sounds like the title of a book! Today, she is also receiving her first lesson on fournos cooking! It will be a fusion of African and Cypriot cookwear…
We have slightly more freedom of movement but unfortunately it is being abused by many… Still, it gave me the opportunity to get a few more bits of art material yesterday so this weekend it will be playtime again. My sis-in-law wants to join in! And tomorrow, because it will be Mothers’ Day in SA, we are ordering in! It’s place called “Koolstoof” – coal stove – no kitchening tomorrow!
And, I’ve also been reading and listening to a lot of scientific articles about the COVID-19 virus. I have learned things that make my hair stand on end… but this is not the place for it. I can, however, recommend Dr. Merkola’s interview with the controversial Dr. Judy Mikovits. It’s lengthy and fairly complicated, but if you are interested, it is well worth a listen and a read (the short interviews’ transcripts are also there) – the full interview is at the end of the article. I have always believed in the facts and not the speculation, the latter causing a lot of useless panic and worry. View it here
And just as a final treat, this is what the moon looked like last evening, rising over Johannesburg. (I have no idea who took the photograph…) Stunning though, isn’t it?
Till next time,
