Well, this has been a very unusual month. We definitely did not expect this when we moved to Italy 15 months ago, but here we are.
The beginning of March was pretty much normal in Scalea, obviously in the north of Italy things had progressed quickly, but it felt that bit far away. Bars and restaurants were still open, we were still seeing our friends. In fact, it was our friend Denisa’s birthday so we went on a day trip locally ro Praia a Mare and had a meal at their home. We were mindful that this virus was spreading but it hadn’t reach Calabria… yet.
