Our last road trip. Taxi ride from Ramnagar to Hauz Khas, Delhi which is a 5 hour journey.

Returning to our comfortable Hotel, Villa 33, we plan to enjoy the last full day here until our flight to Larnaca on Tuesday morning.

On Sunday evening, the full extent of the Coronavirus crisis kicks in. Friends in Cyprus start messaging us with emergency new legislation measures that have been announced by the President of Cyprus in Nicosia, which will affect us. Also the virus is now becoming a very real threat here in India. The majority of people now wearing masks, people looking at us two westerners suspiciously. It is no longer a safe place to be.

We could write a whole chapter and verse about the nightmare 48 hours that ensued, however, we prefer to advise that by Wednesday evening we are safely ensconced at a Family member’s home in Essex, England for the forseeable future, having been unable to return to our beloved home in Cyprus.

This isn’t how we planned to pen our closing blog entry, but the uppermost priority is for safety and prayers that this virus can be overcome with as few mortalities as possible.

Thank you for reading. Best Wishes to all and keep safe.
