It was a paradise. And now…
The London Daily Mail told the sad story of an Australian couple that the coronavirus blocked on the Caribbean island of Antigua.
Those who have been to Antigua know that this is paradise on Earth. But for a married couple from Australia – Michael Okif and Jane MagGichi – this paradise turns into hell. The story is like that.
Michael and Jaina traveled around the Caribbean with their Don Quijote. The word "coronavirus" they first heard on Tortola in late February. And just a few days after that, Jaina found out about the pregnancy.
– We originally planned to return to Australia in April – May, and the pregnancy of our plans has not changed, says Jaina. – I should give birth only in October, the pandemic seemed to be something categorically far from us. In general, we continued to enjoy the sea and the sun. And even in their terrible dreams, they could not imagine that in just a few weeks the air service would cease all over the world, and countries would start quarantining one by one.
Don Quijote went to Antigua – and anchored in the bay for an indefinite period. Attempts to take advantage of the latest flights to Brisbane have failed. Even if there were empty seats, money for the flight to Michael and Jane would still not be enough – the price of one ticket soared to $ 17,000. It is too expensive.
In general, travelers cook on a yacht, try to remain optimistic (at least on photogriafia), but their future is in complete fog. It’s good for poor people like them, the authorities to replenish supplies in shops on the shore – several times a week from 7 am to noon. But here's another trouble – huge lines.
– The other day we stood in such a queue for a good three hours and as a result did not buy anything: the store ran out of products. – complains Jane. “Now let's try to go ashore again in a few days.” That is still pleasure: what is going on there is real madness!
That's how they live. The only hope is that the quarantine will be removed and they will be able to fly to Australia. Yes, and this will happen only on the condition that their compatriots-Australians help them with money.
Hmm, really a sad story.
