Travel and travel photography has always been my brother-in-law’s passion. I think of him as a seasoned, debonair peripatetic, a citoyen du monde.
But people who don’t know him would see the, ah, seasoned aspect. Especially right now. Definitely in the “most vulnerable to Cv19” subset.
What I want to tell you is: he reports that people in the Spangloid population of Brooklyn seem to think he’s a carrier because of his age. They admonish him for heedlessly venturing outside his apartment when he sashays to the little Korean grocery store, hurling reproaches (from a safe distance).
The current urban legend has it they regard all Chinese people as infectious, too. That of course is much more sensible and possibly even accurate. But I doubt the reports that Chinese are being beaten up, I mean, you wouldn’t wanna get that close to ‘em. Peligro!
