Time to make the most of them; masks won't be needed from next weekend. | Miquel À. Cañellas
In the dim, distant past that is last summer, President Armengol was minded to query the wearing of masks outdoors. Were they really necessary, she asked, especially "in this heat". The president, who has amassed a collection of masks of many colours to fit her every top, will still be proudly wearing them indoors as from next weekend, but outdoors she - along with the rest of us - will be able to breathe in the fresh air of mounting traffic fumes (thanks to partial tourism reactivation). The masks are coming off.
