How Little Red Riding Hood Came to be Eaten.(1)

What's new

We thought we were living through doomsday last Thursday. A thick mist descended on Monaco and you couldn't see from one side of the port to the other. Some said it was a rare meteorological phenomenon, others that it was the natural result of warm spring air meeting the cold Mediterranean Sea. At least we didn't witness the insanity described in James Herbert's horror story The Fog.

Plage Larvotto business owners should be able to access their premises this month to prepare for the beach opening again on 1 July. The Ecole Bleue, the creche, and Larvotto Gym won't open before autumn tho', and all work is scheduled for completion at the beginning of 2022.

In brief

British newspaper The Guardian has a theory about why Covid vaccinations are taking so long in France.

In the Alpes-Maritimes, the majority of Covid infections are amongst the 20-29 age group.

And finally...

Photographers across the world are invited to submit images for the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Environmental Photography Award which is being launched to celebrate the FPA2's 15th anniversary. The theme is "Humanity and Wildlife: crossed destinies, shared territories", and there's a prize fund of 10,000 euros. Entries close on 28 March, and if you fancy your chances, visit the website here for more information: FPA2 Environmental Photography Award 2021.
