Virus politics -—I almost got into a fight with a guy on the bus this evening because I was so transfixed on the boldface headline of the Evening Standard tabloid “All China Visitors ‘Could Face UK Ban’,” that I picked it up from the seat next to him across the aisle.

Enough of virus politics — let’s move on. For me moving on was to visit Paete, a little town hemmed in between land and sea.
