Lunch at the beach

Since early March 2020, epidemic spreading, lockdown measures and social distancing rules have changed everything. And while big tech multinationals are trying to destroy middle class' retailers, people have no choice but to buy online many products and services they need.

In late 2019, before the Covid-19 pandemic began to spread across the Northern emisphere, Amazon had announced a pilot program for a virtual medical clinic. The virtual clinic services would consist of video visits with doctors and registered nurses. It wasn't Amazon's first step outside its confort zone. 

As it is konwn, in 2019 Amazon was, and still is, a grocer, a fashion venue and its own delivery provider. As mentioned by many experts, considering Amazon's pervasive presence worldwide, no company is ever truly safe. But Amazon, Google, and Alibaba Group will never be able to serve us a fish dish at the beach on a sunny Sunday.

Have a nice Sunday and stay safe!

Cloudy Sunday

Just to show four pictures, which I took this morning on a cloudy Sunday here in Central Italy. 

                             A Sunday on the beach without sun

                                                                             Cloudy sky

     Fodder transport (someone is working on Sunday for cattle and other livestock)

                                                                 Fodder production

Sorry to hear that since next month some Italian regions will probably adopt lockdown measures ... once again.

Have a nice Sunday! And stay safe!

EURO 2020 final match, beaches, and tomatoes

We have lived with COVID-19 for more than one year. Will this pandemic ever end?  I am sorry to hear pressure grows on olympic games organizers over spectators, as there is a new wave of COVID cases in Japanese capital.
At the moment it seems European people would like to enjoy the urban environment, coffees, parks, and beaches. The picture below shows the pedestrian area located in the older part of Civitavecchia (70 km North from Rome).

Unfortunately, people who are on holiday (here in Central Italy) can't have lunch on the beach, because of the cloudy weather. 

Meanwhile, tomatoes on my balcony will be ready in one week. I hope seagulls will not eat them :-) ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ…... last week they (seagulls) ate all tomatoes on my balcony ๐Ÿคจ

And last but not least, on Sunday, July 11, the Euro 2020 final match will take place at Wembley Stadium in London ๐Ÿ† Italy and England will face off for the continental crown
