Like Christmas and New Year, the whole of Italy is once again at the highest level of lockdown (red) in an attempt to try and contain the spread of this terrible virus.
Until recently we understood that Sicily was handling the pandemic reasonably well but now we're not so sure. In the last 10 days it transpires that a senior figure has been manipulating the figures here in Sicily such that they looked significantly better than they actually were and as a result we were in a less restrictive lockdown (yellow) which meant Café, bars and restaurants could remain open until 6pm. Call us cynical or what.. but could this be the Mafia at work ;-). Nevertheless now that the real numbers of infections are being reported we are set to remain as either fully locked down (red) or partially locked down (amber) for the month of April.
Just like at Christmas we bubbled up with our good friends Vic & Clare from Njord and celebrated Easter Sunday with some delicious food and plenty to drink. Thank you both, it really was another lovely day. Xx
