Seeing as South Africa will not experience this feeling of hope for a while, it helps to talk to people who have had the vaccine and whose lives are returning to some semblance of normality.
The reduced number of museum visitors competing for prime viewing space is just one bonus of being a tourist under pandemic constraints. Another is being able to feel awe and intense appreciation for art, while the world outside collectively holds their breath until a vaccine is found.

DutchReview

Our mission is to inform our audience about the most important stories coming out of the Netherlands. But let’s be honest, we also like to entertain our readers with fun stuff!

We like our opinions and editorials sharp and provoking, but we try to keep it neutral in general.”
