New on Gwulo: 2021, week 41

A look at what's new on the Gwulo website...


Quarantine's end

This time tomorrow I'll be out of quarantine at last.

If you need to book a quarantine package, I've been happy with my stay here at Four Points by Sheraton in Tung Chung: comfortable room, good service, fast wifi, and no complaints about the food. (I do have one complaint though - the title of the hotel deal: Fun-filled Quarantine Stay Package in Hong Kong. "Fun-filled"??? Whoever wrote that should be forced to spend three weeks in quarantine!)

Hopefully you won't have to spend quite so long in quarantine by the time it is your turn. Local Doctor David Owens asks "Is Hong Kong’s 21-Day Quarantine evidence-based or justified?". Short answer: no.


Next on Gwulo

Apologies for the recent glut of newsletters, but they've certainly kept me busy and made the last three weeks fly by. We'll go from feast to famine, as once I'm home again I'll get back to work on upgrading the Gwulo website to the new software. It will take several months to finish, and during that time I'll focus on the upgrade so the newsletters will mostly be just the "New on Gwulo:" summaries.
