Hello Mint,

This was interesting. I am glad that you have found a relatively happy new life here, but sad that you are so far from your family and unable to see them. Pandemics usually don't last forever, and it is extremely surprising that this one is so similar to the Spanish Flu. Australia's answers to it have come straight from the Spanish Flu 'rulebook'! That lasted about two years, so hopefully we will all be able to travel again soon. Keep your spirits up!
