Chinese Lunar New Year 2020 Celebrations Disrupted, Facemasks Abound — But, Boston Still A ‘Go’.

A quick search on ‘Google News’.



Nothing surprising here. This was to be expected and I am, in reality, amazed that more celebrations have not been cancelled. Boston is a case in point. It is still a go and we have been talking about it multiple times today. Do we go or do we give it a miss. Wife, who invariably is the one more cautious, says she has no problem going. So, it is my call.

We went to an event yesterday. But, that was rather contained in terms of the number of Chinese there — though I appreciate that you only need one carrier.

I will also confess that I do not want to eat Dim Sum, at our China Pearl, if all the staff are wearing face masks. That will just be to off putting. Yes, we have been there when one or two have worn masks because they had a ‘cold’. But, being served my masked servers will seem odd. Strange.

We still have time. We can wait till the last minute.

As I said yesterday, the timing of this 2020 coronavirus outbreak could NOT have been any WORSE!

I will keep you posted.

I was not aware of her. I really know so little about Oliver Mtukudzi’s life other than his music. I must rectify that.

As with Sam Mtukudzi, his now departed son, and ‘Marshall Munhumumwe‘, a contemporaneous Zimbabwean musician, it is YouTube that brought her to my attention — this morning — as a suggestion. Thanks, YouTube. You sure know what will pique my interest.

She is good and some of Oliver’s band members play with her. That is all good, though she, at least from the little I have heard so far, is NO Oliver or for that matter Sam. But, she is ALIVE and that is definitely a PLUS. Smile.

I wanted to share the news with you — which I have now done. Check it out. You might like her.
