This weeks change, all the shops are now open normal hours... Anyone heard any details of the EC region opening up its region to air travel yet? Supposed to be only a week or 2 away.

Nope but it's all kind of weird now. It's pretty obvious that most around here have given up on the guidelines and presumably the police have no interest to pursuing individuals who break the lock-down. I live on a road where there is an endless procession of vehicles in the evening when NO shops would be open. Bars are open and no masks there.

There was a funeral just up the road the other day - no masks, everybody close up on each other, the absolute classic way to spread the sucker if one wanted to, spreading it far and wide. Globally, it seems church services and church groups have been the biggest spreader by far, right from the outset with the super spreaders in Europe. Didn't know religion was so "In your face".

It really does make me think WHY BOTHER? But then one could have asked that same question for weeks now. Football, road and all.

As for inter-island travel. Looking forward to spreading my wings in Grenada first - and that long-awaited haircut come Tuesday.

LIAT are selling flights between GND and BGI from June 1st at this point. However, I'm not sure that means anything as they are also selling SLU out of BGI from June 1st when we know that St Lucia isn't opening until the 4th for US markets.

Just an update for those interested... This Friday many of the restrictions will be lifted, and this Sunday will be the first without any curfew. Masks will be still be required, in most circumstances. The Virus has been pretty much of a damp squib here - no deaths at all. One cruise-ship passenger died of a heart attack but WITH the Virus, which doesn't count. At one or two of the bars, the social-distancing has been ignored, so it will be interesting to see if there is a "second wave" because of that kind of thing.

I think you have experienced -as we have - wave 0, the non existant wave when an islands government decide it is an island and who needs outsiders or to travel, we just want the outsiders goods. Later, they decide being an island isnt such fun and open up, then you will get the first wave. Coming to many islands close to you from next month. Practically there never was an option, the delay was just a financial penalty for the less intelligent.

It's nice to be able to report that one segment of the population is taking lockdown in its stride. That segment is mine. We old codgers find house-arrest to be a piece of cake. We weren't going anywhere anyway! I have reduced my shopping from three times a week to one, and that just gives me even more time to laze around the house and do nothing, without feeling guilty. And I don't have to queue up outside the supermarket; as an "elderly" I get ushered straight in. Never went out to bars and restaurants, or to church on Sundays, and I'm too old and decrepit to play tennis. So I sit around and read, and for excitement I type half-witted contributions to places like British Expats. Nice!

Whats an aporth?

Anyhow - you might have what happened here, Grenada opened last month but didnt give the airlines notice, they make their plans a few months in advance, BA arent coming here till october and we told them in July... We arent welcoming anyone from the US at present unless we can lock them up for 2 weeks. Theres also the issue that the airlines are apparently re-squeezing the islands for higher fees or passenger guarantees - so just because your government says they are open - dont necessarily expect it to interest the airlines.

Thanks for your kind thought, BEVS. I would explain in a PM to you and you alone, but not otherwise. (I don't know how to send a PM, except as a response.)

It is an old fashioned English slang saying I suppose. I was calling myself a soft or daft aporth. It should be h'aporth really from half a penny worth.
