We have been living through a time when everything was closed. Stores, hairdressers, and above all restaurants. In the meanwhile life has had to adapt, people have been perhaps vaccinnated and the authorities are trying to get the whole pandemic situation under control. They closed this restaurant on the banks of our River Aare last Summer. It is one of the favourites of the population of our town. There are usually chairs and tables outside and a meeting place for all in the good weather. It was an idea by a few people in our town and they organised it. In the meanwhile it is again open, naturally with the seating positioned at a safe distance. Its closure was regretted by many, it almost became a status symbol of our freedom during the pandemic.
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
