    I’m no surprised but what a blow anyway.

    I feel so sorry for all the countries attacked by this virus!

  3. I know–people are really scared, too. I hope the world can get this under control soon!

    Venice looks so beautiful, even more so than usual, when it seems more deserted. We usually go there in Winter, to avoid both crowds and warm weather, but even then, it is so rare to be able to see the wonderful buildings and Grand Canal without all our modern tourist mess. I feel deeply for poor Venice, but it won’t stop me returning at “my” time of year again.

    • What an irony, right? Venice needs its tourist dollars, but is also overrun by careless travelers. After the autumn flood and now the virus, I hope that local Venetian businesses are able to carry on.
