Tonight, I took a few photos in the Grau du Roi.
It is about 9 pm and the curfew has started.

Curfew? I was under the impression everybody was slowly opening up. At least that's what's happening here. As of this writing 50% of the population has been vaccinated at least the first dose. The New York Times web site as well as bing.com/covid has the details.
France has been under a strict nighttime curfew since December 2020 and although the country is now gradually reopening, restrictions remain.

This Evening, I took a few photos in the Grau du Roi.

Besides bars, one can find many restaurants serving delicious seafood dishes with fresh fish and shellfish in the Grau du Roi.









This photo certainly reminds humbert of the Art deco style of Miami.

I knew about the strict curfew because you were almost arrested by the curfew police once. What I didn't know is that a gradual reopening was taking place. As more people get vaccinated it'll reopen more and more. BTW, did you get vaccinated and if so, what vaccine did you get?

Let me take the opportunity to pose the same question to everyone else. Who else is vaccinated and what vaccine did you receive? I already received both doses of the Phizer-Biontech vaccine. No side effects. I just made an appointment online with one of the pharmacies/clinics that are offering it. Didn't cost me anything, the government paid for it.

I didn't get vaccinated.

I didn't get vaccinated.

As of this writing (4/6/2021), bing is reporting that only 17.07% and 38.81% of the population of France respectively has been fully and one dose only vaccinated. I'm under the impression vaccines aren't easy to get over there. Is this indeed the case? I have a hard time believing it's a question of complacency.

I don't know humbert. But if you look at the statistics of Egypt and Palestine, you'll notice that barely one percent of the population has been vaccinated. And they seem fine. Btw, if 60% of the French population were to die due to covid, we would still be too numerous in my opinion.

I'm seeing in your first picture that nobody is in the water. If that beach were a little closer to the equator it would probably be full of people. BTW what are those yellow things in the water?

With respect to the vaccine, I got it only because it was readily available at no cost. Given Covid-19's low death rate I wasn't really concerned about contracting the virus. I'm thinking the reason almost nobody in Egypt is vaccinated is because they're following your logic, i.e., their population is too high. With respect to Palestine maybe it's part of Israel's genocide against the Palestinian people. They're very vaccinated, Palestinians aren't. They get sick, the Jews don't.

There is a marking of beaches with yellow buoys. This is the delimitation of the 300-meter zone and maritime channels to secure swimming and navigation.

As far as Palestine is concerned, a few months ago I was driving my car near the park of Sceaux when I heard that the supply of vaccines to Palestine barely scratches at the surface of the region’s needs because of a strict blockade, particularly in the Gaza strip.
As for Egypt, under the government’s vaccination program, many Egyptians and foreign nationals living in the country have to pay the equivalent of $12 for two doses. But it's too expensive for most Egyptians, and this explains why they don't get vaccinated.

Vasudev and humbert must be wondering why there is a chicken on the grass. Actually, it is a laughing seagull.
