    From what I can see it’s much lower key than last time. Keep and eye on the FCDO advice qc, if the advice changes and you still decide to go have a look at Battleface insurance. I’ll get my trip report on in the next day or two.

    Thanks – I will @strickers.

    Btw – I’ve sent you a message on Flyertalk asking for some info when you have a minute.

    My brother is – but also, please don’t be alarmed! The “bother” is more
    day-to-day stuff for homes/shopping, etc. I’m sure your trip will be wonderful!

    …said the driver that relies on tourism.

    It won’t be pleasant, FCDO advice will change. Good luck. Don’t forget insurance.
