Woke up early, despite being tired. It’s becoming increasingly clear to me that now we have to make decisions regarding the Coronavirus. There’s already been a fatality in Guyana. So, the three of us spend the morning pulling out all the stops to get us back home as fast as possible. The embassy in Trinidad does in fact confirm that Denis and I are no longer able to enter Trinidad. There’s been a fatality there too, this time with a connection to Germany and now Germans who have been in Germany during the last 14 days are no longer allowed to enter. Luckily this does not apply to our filmmaker Tom, who hasn’t been there for months, but he’s worried he won’t make it to Fiji.
This means: discontinuing the trip, so we cancel all planned appointments. Denis and I are lucky to get a ticket to Barbados for tomorrow, followed by a flight to Frankfurt on Monday.
