At: Grand Anse Bay, Grenada

Living space on Vite & Rêves is about 30m2. This works out to about 6m2 per person. Imagine living on 2 by 3 m for more than a month. The United Nations has condemned countries for less. Amnesty International would write some very angry letters.

To put things in perspective: out of 120 000 inhabitants, 7 currently have covid19. All are quarantined and doing well. Contact tracing is continuous and extensive. In short: There’s zero risk.

As of last Monday, businesses are carefully opening again. Restaurants and bars are still closed, but the rest is back to normal. Every day is a grocery day, so the lines at the supermarkets have disappeared.

And the best thing: the beaches are open again. Only from 5:00 to 11:00 in the morning, but still, it’s a good start. A sign that things are slowly going back to normal.

We hopped in the dinghy faster than you could say “Land ho” and delighted in an early beach visit.

Ok, now put it back in the water
