It was an unusual difficult year of 2020 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic originated from China and extended all over the world that imposed serious restrictions on travel and outdoor activities. We had to cancel our planned trips to Japan and Taiwan in April/May and Botswana and South Africa in August, even the foliage trip to New England in October.
