Dear Friends,

Every now and then I use the ENAT website to talk to you. Normally it is for the celebration of annual events which see all of us planning holidays or spending leisure days with our families and friends. Today we find ourselves locked up in the houses, all social contacts interrupted, counting only on virtual means to continue being in touch due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
