BREAKING NEWS: We are in lockdown in Lugo. No in or out. No mixing with those outside immediate family. My new friends can’t mix with me as I’m not in their households. Cases are rising here and they need to stem the tide. All major Galician cities are the same. No house viewing next week. My car isn’t ready yet anyway. Good thing I have a good supply of books.
There are people hurting right now. A hotel isn’t the worst place to be. But I won’t lie, it sucks. I’d rather have been done with the viewings, made some decisions, then gone home to Jeff before all this. When I said I might never leave Lugo I was kidding. Now it looks like perhaps it was foreshadowing.
The world seems to be in such a crazy place right now. Covid. The election in the US (bringing hope or despair – we shall see which it is in a few days). Families are separated all over. People are alone and sick. I’m going to keep my chin up here, and try to count my blessings. And look at the pictures of the river I took last night. Sometimes you have to look a little harder for the upside – but it’s there. I’ll find it.
That’s all – that’s the whole post.
