Many foreign tourists, including French, have decided to go to Spain, where health measures are much less restrictive than in other European countries. A situation that some locals, subject to the ban on leaving their region, do not understand.
Toasting on the terrace is possible in Spain. In Madrid, the curfew doesn’t start until 11 p.m. and all bars, restaurants and museums are open. “It’s all I wanted, everything I dreamed of”, breathes a French tourist, who came to the Spanish capital with his friends. This causes a rather paradoxical situation, because if tourists flock to the capital, the people of Madrid are almost assigned to home. Like all their compatriots, they are prohibited from going to another region.
What annoy some, especially with the approach of the Easter holidays. “For example, I cannot go to Almeria, so I do not understand that tourists can come, asks a passerby. They can have Covid-19 as much as I do. “ These travel restrictions will be enforced until April 9. In the Balearics, a wave of tourists is sweeping from all over Europe. Companies have even planned hundreds of additional flights. A news that rejoices the professionals of the sector. “Right now we are able to charge up to 20% more than before, so that’s perfect”, welcomes a waiter.
