This morning I went to the City Auditorium to get my first shot of Pfizer. Got their on time and was ushered in to see the nurse, the place is run by the Red Cross Volunteers and nurses from the PEI Health Dept. It was quick and painless and then you sit in another section for 15 minutes, nurse are present to monitor you in case of a negative reaction. After that you are free to go home.
So far 75% of all Health workers have been vaccinated, 90% of all people in long term care homes, 22% of the general population.
Will has been going through photos of our trip to Cambodia and Vietnam some 15 years ago, absolutely lovely trip and such fond memories of the place we visited.
Back then visiting such areas was more tranquil then today, less tourists and the various areas where still very much the way they had been in the past, excluding the war and the murderous Khmer Rouge. Very nice people everywhere and the scenery was beautiful. I was working in Beijing back then and this trip outside of China was a very nice break, different culture, cuisine and traditions.
The view of the man made terraces all around us, as can be seen the mountains are sculpted to accommodate rice culture. Truly back breaking work using water buffalos and an ingenious natural gravitational watering system.
Such a wonderful trip and so unusual on so many levels. To this day I think of this trip made to celebrate Will’s 60th birthday as one of the best we made.
