Made it home Wednesday afternoon. The MD letter was fine, even though no one read it! Had to wake up a 3 am. Even though the people on Pink Street were still going strong. Had some sushi. It was ok.
I sent out some SOS’s from Dubai to Coronado and I think my MD came through. I booked a ticket for Wed AM and I have his letter ready to confront the CDC.
Now what? Just hanging out, walking a lot. Keeping away from people, warring a mask when near people.
I walked around mostly, trying to keep away from people. I have a lot more to read, soI am enjoying this extra time. I feel badly for putting this burden on my daughter, but she will be fine. She will have her well deserved vacation soon. I have advised on extra contacts and toothpaste which I had to find.
I just took a second Covid test. I will be emailed within two hours to see what is next. The weather is perfect, warm in the sun, cool in the shade. I am very close to a Food Hall that I went to a few days ago. I think I’ll wander over.
Back down the Funicular is next
Just sitting at a cute and busy cafe, enjoying my quarantine. Rose helps. My view is incredible. A very ancient castle in front of me, St George’s. Then at one o’clock, the bay? Or Atlantic, cute gay couple then a few people with tattoos and piercings, having a few beers, on to 4 pm.. guy in a New Zealand shirt having a coffee. Behind me the bistro with a colorful cast of characters, 11 pm the single girls and in front of me a couple whose baby hates the dad.. They are so frustrated and drinking Aperol spritz’s. This is fun! Photos to follow.
I tested positive! Wtf! I was having a nice lunch and reading and this popped up. Of course my phone was near dead. I finished my wine and ubered to my hotel. I was a pretty much packed already but grabbed everything and booked a different hotel. I couldn’t fathom staying in a room with no open air. Such a problem. Got to the hotel and realized I left my passport in the safe. I was nervous of going back but I had to. I felt like time was of the essence. The front desk that had been empty the past few days was full of people checking in. Would I be put in Covid handcuffs? I got to my room, ordered another Uber with my passport secure. And I ended up with a window that opened, really nice people at the quaint hotel and a concert outside my room. I could swear it was Sir Elton John, so quarantine or not, not that it has been “mandated” by anyone, I went to see! Not Elton but pretty awesome!! Concert in the park with a wine bar! And seats available to sit on!! I truly have good Karma!!
OMG these are the pastries that everyone raves about! Flakey puff pastry basted with salty butter and warm custard inside. Delicious. Could order with espresso or port. Why not both! Just did my kiosk Covid test. Hope it’s negative or I will be eating these pastries!!
