It's as if we've slipped into a parallel universe; some parts of life seem to be carrying on almost as usual (or have just drifted into being just a different version of normal) while at the same time, other aspects seem to be completely out of control. Time is one of the 'out of control' bits. We are about to hold our second post lock-down event and I am still thinking our little picnic in the woods was a few days ago. Here are a couple of pictures from our very successful open air 'meet-up' at Peyia's Pikni Forest picnic site (try saying that in a hurry) so that we don't forget about it entirely ( a few more HERE)
It is very difficult to convey what a lovely atmosphere it was. The temperature on our car's gauge was 37'C as we came through Peyia and I was convinced that a) no-one would turn up b) if they did, they'd be fainting away because of the heat... instead we had an excellent turn out and beneath the trees it was truly lovely and possibly the most comfortable we'd been all that week. Everyone was delighted to see each other, gossip and food were shared equally and all agreed it was a super way to spend the afternoon. Tomorrow we are holding our Elea Quiz, though a complete contrast to the woods this is another venue where we will have plenty of room to be adequately spaced out. People can feel comfortable in these disease-ridden times and again we have a very respectable turn out expected so it promises to be an entertaining night. Hopefully I'll be reporting back as little more promptly to say how it went.
