If you’ve been reading my series on the eastern Euro option for young Americans, you may have noted my suggestion of urgency. As of next Wednesday, it will be too late – for now.

The European Union will bar most travelers from the United States, Russia and dozens of other countries considered too risky because they have not controlled the coronavirus outbreak, EU officials said Friday.

By contrast, travelers from more than a dozen countries that are not overwhelmed by the coronavirus will be welcomed when the bloc reopens after months of lockdown Wednesday. The acceptable countries also include China — but only if China allows EU travelers to visit as well, the officials said.

This is perfectly understandable. I wouldn’t want sickly third-worlders in my coherent nation – if I had one. Kids, spend the waiting time planning and preparing. I’ll be back soon with more ideas.
