Corona Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a lovely energetic day that flew by, ending off on the exiting note of #loadshedding 😱; for waking up to the good news that Nicola Jowell remains our Ward 54 Councillor; for getting my writing work done this morning; for a Bakoven walk, able to help lost Russian tourists looking for their accommodation on Victoria Road; for attending a Fedhasa meeting, serving on Fedhasa Cape a number of years ago, driving with my client Martine Wood, GM of newkings boutique hotel, which was held at Groot Constantia, and addressed by Monika Ieul, Chief Marketing Officer of Wesgro, making one very optimistic about the season to come, with one very key message: Jab for tourism; for being able to attend a Breakaway session about sustainable food, about which I’ll write a Blogpost; for rushing to Utopia Cape Town, playing photographer at the Lufthansa celebration of its new reintroduced Munich – Cape Town flights, which commenced yesterday, guided by Dr Andre Schulz, who heads up Lufthansa South Africa; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙
My Blogpost today was an update of the Restaurant Openings and Closures.

I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
