  • Best wishes to all! and stay healthy - do not go out, if you must then stay away from others, wear gloves and masks, and disinfect, and wash hands frequently.

    Sunday: probably no-one will join others for a walk tomorrow - it will be cold, and we must maintain social distancing, meaning 2 meters between us. Reply on chat www.tinyurl.com/ICB-Hiking if you are interested in walks and hikes when it gets warmer.

    Sunday: How about watching Asterix (on SF2 at 13:35) instead? And you can watch movies "simultaneously at home" with other club members and talk about them on a WhatsApp chat - join www.tinyurl.com/ICB-Movies to find out more.

    Sunday: summer time starts! You lose an hour of sleep, it will be later than you think!

    If you like reading books, join the chat www.tinyurl.com/ICB-Sophie to choose the next books and plan the next meetings. These will be held online using Skype. Probably you use this already to talk with distance relatives, or you can ask for help.

    We must also hold the club meetings online. To plan the next one, on non-violent communication, you should join the chat www.tinyurl.com/ICB-Meeting. At the meeting after this, Joseph Thudianplakal will tell us about visiting India. And at a later meeting, we will talk about the Silk Road.

    We can still stay active, communicating by phone and by post and online by chat and email.  If you would like to talk to someone, call me or Nazanin or Ulrike, see on page 2 of the Newsletter for the contacts. There are many groups in Berne which offer shopping help, you can ask about this by joining  www.tinyurl.com/ICB-Helping. You can also chat in German or French or Spanish in the Cafè groups, see page 7 of the Newsletter.
