I just wanted to tell you that in my free time I like to stay at home, listen to music, drink mate, watch TV, play teqball… Those things I'm doing in quarantine. I wanted to ask you what you do in free time and how are you feeling these last few days. I know that this situation it is very difficult for all of us, but it is a thing we all must respect. It is very important for all the people to respect the orders from the government.
