Well, because of the coronavirus, the night between 7 and 8 March 2020 we became a so called red zone, and we are going to be until April 3.
During the next weeks, being forcedly unemployed as a tour guide, I’m going to monitor the situation keeping a sort of a diary. In a pretty sober way, rejecting fake news and panic speech.


 

The diary was closed on April 6 and is now available as a book issued in the Finisterrae series.
