After hell in a hand basket, we are free to roam freely! Partial Lockdown turned into Lockdown sometime before Christmas and that didn’t change in 2021. At some point the rules just got a bit stricter, so many of us lost their bubble families as well.
Since Friday, eateries are allowed to cater to people outside again! With a test of course but it has the nice side effect that people don’t pile up in the parks. Museums and castles are slowly opening, as well as a few theatres with outside shows. Rumors go, the gyms might even open at some point in summer. While it is hard to understand that they lock us down for so long and in a few weeks people can fly to who knows where … it still offers a glimpse of hope.
So, we are all slowly crawling out of our caves, the sun hurts the eyes a bit and we may have lost a few social abilities. When you see friends you don’t have anything to talk about and kinda secretly compare who gained the most weight (which is generally me). To cover all this awkwardness, why not bring a gift basket? Pack it with all the Corona basics and a gnome for good luck (especially for British friends).
Thanks for flying with be kitschig.
Enjoy your summer! Make the most of your time between waves and lockdowns. Stay healthy, happy and sane!
