I'm a freelance journalist who took off to Madrid for a look-see and enjoy what was on offer while I was there. I was hoping to write a story about Halloween in this once-bustling capital. Considering how fiesta-loving the Spaniards are, All Saints Day cum Halloween should be quite festive. On the other hand, I had to get real. These are unusual times, the Era of the Covid.

But if you're going to the Canaries, check out the updates just to make sure.

The rather strange phenomenon is happening side by side with the accelerated demand for bicycles and other means of mobility as alternatives to mass transit which is perceived as a superspreader of the virus.

On Sunday, 11 October 2020, the World’s Number 2 ATP player demolished Serbian Novak Djokovic, the World’s Number 1, in three straight sets at the Roland Garros final.

In his victory speech, Rafa Nadal said, "I never hide that I would love to finish my career being the player with more Grand Slams, no doubt about that. The records, of course, I care."

Donald Trump says he feels better than ever and is ready to resume the campaign trail. If I were Trump, I would have crawled into bed until the election was over, but Trump’s a fighting man and doesn’t want to appear weak in front of his constituents. He took experimental drugs to get over the virus faster and fought his doctors tooth and nail every step of the way.

In truth, "selective confinement" is not exclusive to Madrid these days. Similar measures are being applied in some places in Spain.
