For me, this is the strangest summer ever. After 60-plus years of memorable vacations, this one will have to be in our backyard. An American passport, which until recently opened doors everywhere except North Korea and Iran, is now rejected in half the world. Even parts of America are off-limits for visitors. For Clevelanders, New York state – whether Manhattan or Soyuzivka in the Catskills – is off limits. Because of the coronavirus, Ohioans, along with folks from 30 or more other states, are subject to a 14-day quarantine. The same is true for tourists to New Jersey and Connecticut. There’s no point vacationing in Washington, D.C., prior to this a favorite destination for us. Just about everything is closed. California, Florida, Arizona and other states are ravaged by the pandemic while suffering 100-plus degree heat every day, so we’re not going there.
