Thanks.  How can any business survive this?

Some have not and I dare say many more will not. I did spot that one or two places were brushing themselves down as it were in the hope that tourists might come in a month or so when flights resume, but the signs are not good.

Going by how the British government have handled the pandemic so far the UK may be in another lockdown by then.

As I said elsewhere, if this virus is that dangerous, everything should remain closed including schools, shops, factories and offices and all travel prohibited until the last case is cleared. Even if it takes five years.

The regular announcement is expected this evening concerning what restrictions will apply here in Albufeira for the rest of the month. We already know that the state of emergency will run until at least May 3rd.

There are always pressures on governments from commercial interests to ease restrictions early.  This is understandable.  The UK Govt. is very susceptible to those pressures.

 No easing of restrictions here within yesterday's announcement, so nothing will be open at weekends (in effect) for another two weeks.

There's a new bit of art down on the Cais Herculano, under the old fishermens shelter. Thanks to Bob D for bringing it to my attention. There's nothing to see yet about who made it etc. It's in shadow, sorry, a fisherman in a boat with his net being dragged into the boast.

I like the public art around Albufeira.

I think Friday's announcement that restaurants could open over the weekened caught a lot unprepared! I noticed that Aquario and Casa Nova were open and reasonably busy, also that expensive place next to Inatel, but nothing much else. Geordie Viking bar and Tunes were open.




The work by the pier is almost done and the hole filled in.




Also finished is the new storm drain under the road outside Inatel. Road open and traffic flowing as normal.

Still very quiet in town yesteday for the simple reason that (officially) there are no tourists therefore no customers.

I hope it will be a decent summer but listening to Kiss FM this morning the cost of the tests will be more than the holiday
Without cheap tests I fear it wont be as busy as the bars/restaurants would like
