Where did you go?

As we know now, my question back in February, "Where would you go?" was a good one when people could still go places! Only a few weeks after I published this post, the world closed down. The Covid-19 pandemic has had many aspects: fear, courage, caring for others, selfishness, and unexpected grace. But the biggest characteristic of the pandemic has been restrictions on travel.As of today, Sept. 30, you can't go anywhere outside your own country without first checking the current rules and conditions for flying, taking a train, staying in a hotel, and eating at a restaurant. Most importantly, can you get across the border?So I am snugging down at home, taking a break from travel. I still teach English, but now it's all online and taking all my time and energy! I'll take a break on this blog for the foreseeable future. You can still read the posts from years past, and I hope I encourage you to keep trying to learn. Good luck on your studies in American English.
