Over the last week, the number of COVID cases have shot through the roof at the UAE – about 5000 cases each day. Have been hearing that it maybe because the Government had not stopped the incoming flights, especially the ones from the UK as soon as their cases went up.
Anyway, the UAE is encouraging people to take the vaccinations innovatively. Some restaurants are offering discounts if we have fully vaccinated. But as of now, we are back to the dire situation and we may have to get into the second phase of the lockdown. Fingers crossed.
Despite these, I am so excited for the coming week and especially for the weekend. I will be volunteering at the Emirates Lit Fest 2021 over the coming and the next weekend.
I have to take the COVID tests over the week as a part of it. I will get my final course of vaccination during the week starting the 7th, so maybe I will get to skip the second round of tests for the Litfest.
What I read this week
Last week was another good reading week. I finished two books and I enjoyed both of them immensely.
- Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
- Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
I am in the mood of reading some non fiction over the week. What are your suggestions?
What I watched this week
I am back to watching my guilty pleasure House MD, on Prime. I have watched most of the House MD over the years, but I am re-watching the episodes and currently on season 2.
Also I have started watching BBC’s Luther, a British cop thriller starring Idris Alba.
