Being quarantined at home is tough, but being locked down in a foreign country is worse–especially when you find yourself in a “haunted” castle surrounded by packs of wolves.
Such is the case for a Bolivian orchestra who traveled to Germany just before borders were closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The New York Post reports:
“A Bolivian pan flute orchestra has been stuck in quarantine on the grounds of a grand 15th-century palace outside of Berlin for two months. Over 20 members of the Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos have been stuck on the grounds and buildings of Rheinsberg Palace, a castle, complete with moat, which has housed generations of German royals, according to the BBC.”
The Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos arrived in Germany in March, just a day before that country banned large gatherings; Bolivia closed its borders soon after and the group has been stranded ever since.
Rheinsberg Palace is said to be haunted by the ghost of Frederick the Great. If you’re not affraid of the supernatural, perhaps the 23 packs of wolves who surrpound the property might give you pause.
While the orchestra members are fairing well, it can’t be denied that this sitaution sounds like the logline to a horror movie!
