In my hometown, a 600-person village, with my husband and my 4-year-old twins.

What's your work situation like at the moment?

More active than ever.

Describe your socializing strategy.

Teams. Skype. Go to meeting.

Thousands of coronabriefings.

What are you watching?

Maestros de la Costura, a talent show about fashion designers.

What are you listening to?

Battiato, Dylan, Moustaki, Caetano, Leonard Cohen, Gilberto Gil…

How are you staying fit?

Easy. I just walk from my desk to the fridge and back.

Have you taken up a hobby?

Candy Crush during the whole week. That's my downfall!

Any tips for getting necessities?

Supermarkets are open here. You just need to take a few security measures.

An awkward moment since all this started.

We invited my aunt for dinner, but she had to stay in a different room. It was big fun.

We got to know we had won an important pitch. I hugged a pillar.

An aha! moment since all this started.

Third day of quarantine. I woke up. I looked at my family sleeping. All healthy. And I understood a lot of things.

This shall pass, too.
