All of a sudden this week, the UK thinned down its covid hotspot redlist to just seven countries, including Panama and Colombia (to which my nephew has just flown from Canada with no trouble at all), but no longer including either Mexico or Guatemala. 

And in a reverse tit-for-tat gesture the government of Guatemala immediately removed us from its own index of forbidden migrants, thus ending a prolonged period of either impossible or quarantine-clogged journeys between our nations. 

In truth the UK was being punished for the sins of England, and these had largely been righted some time ago. 

This is welcome news I suppose for La Antigua, as European visitors have been scarce throughout the era of the pandemia, and London's major airports have always represented the simplest and most cost-effective method of crossing the pond.
