Great article. Well put-together, solid advice, mixed with anecdotes and advice from others.

I’m also an ex-pat (in Japan) though I have a family I live with and the restrictions here are only slowly being implemented. Thankfully.

And last, “War and Peace” has long been on my list, too! I’ve been doing classics the past few years, so maybe this is a great time to start that one!

Hang in there!
