Here are some of the things I have seen from various friends of Pakati…more blogs to come, some happy, some sad.

Some can sit outside to eat…

Some can take time to rest….

Some have children or families to look after…

Some cannot leave the yard…..

some are staying at the school

and some…..get their 18 year old son to help as hairdressers and barbers are all closed right now

So…..what are the rest of you doing?
