At last, spring has sprung and life as we know it is returning to (a new) normal. How have you spent your first month of freedom?

March saw the end of our curfew due to the low prevalence of the virus, and at last we can meander down Main Street without the need for face masks. A positive step towards what I hope will be another relatively free summer. A huge congratulations to our dedicated health care professionals for vaccinating our entire adult population in record time (we even made it onto ITV, Sky, and the Telegraph, amongst other outlets!).

In this Easter issue, Gianna looks back at the origins of the holiday, and you’ll be happy to hear it involves bollos de hornazo (p. 36).

In Art Club, Bea talks us through 7 simple steps to draw the famous Moai statues on Easter Island (p. 55). This remote volcanic island in Polynesia also goes by its native name – Rapa Nui. Grab your pencils, and don’t forget to tag us!

April 23rd is Shakespeare Day (Happy Birthday, Bill!), and to celebrate, Carmen spoke to some of our local actors, directors, and writers for their take on the Bard of Avon’s most prolific quotes (p. 45). We also took to the streets to ask you what your most memorable quote is (p. 08).

As travel plans appear more of a realistic possibility on the horizon, we can enjoy the last instalment of Chris’ ‘Traveller’s Diary’ without the green-eyed monster lurking, as Shakespeare would put it (p. 63). But is Gibraltar ready for the return of tourism in a post-pandemic world? Eran and Ayelet dissect vacations, eco-led tourism, and the rise of the independent traveller (p. 18).

And to finish off with a treat, Pete talks anchovies and garlic; the staples of any good mediterranean pantry (p. 60), whilst Andrew provides some accompanying vino wisdom (p. 68).

¡Felices Pascuas!
