Forget what I said about Zoom calls. I’m all Zoomed out. Thankfully, as we enter into Phase 5 of Unlock the Rock, restrictions have begun to ease and I’ve been able to interact with other humans again! (Just in time, too. I was about to go full-Tom Hanks and name my exercise ball Wilson.)
But that doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods just yet; it’s so important to practice social distancing where possible, and protect yourself from any potential spread of the virus. If you’re wondering what facemask to wear, and when to wear it, refer to our handy guide (p. 75). Jo also has some helpful hints and tips on how to enjoy the sun, sea, and sand, safely (p. 73). That’s some alliteration my old English teacher, Mr King, would be proud of.
As you may have heard by now, the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park (AWCP) threw open their arms (and wings, paws, and trotters) to the public last month for the first time since lockdown began (p. 25). Go and show your support, and make some furry and feathery friends in the process!
As Julia states in this month’s fashion segment, looking put-together in the scorching summer heat is never an easy feat. Trousers and long-sleeved tops have been firmly relegated to the ‘winter suitcase’, but what to wear now (p. 80)?
In ‘Business’, Eran and Ayelet highlight the importance of caring, and caring about what’s important when considering the impact of COVID-19 on relocation assignments (p. 16). How is your workplace dealing with the issue of employment mobility?
If you enjoyed last month’s article on ‘How I Got Into Wine – Part 1’, I have some good news for you. Here’s Part 2 (p. 76)! Andrew speaks to more of his wine aficionado amigos, who recount their reason for turning to the (expensive) bottle. Do you remember yours? Email in for the chance to win a bottle of Perrier Jouët Champagne worth over £40!
And finally, make sure you head over to our community segment, where we shine a spotlight on some of the incredible individuals striving to make a difference both here on the Rock and around the world (p. 22). Que vivan los llanis!
