Bangkok a Ghost Town !!

Bangkok a Ghost Town !!

March 2020 ยท 4 min read

It has been a real strain on the people of Bangkok city with all the lock downs and i am sure this is taking a toll on many other countries around the world. I confined myself to my room in the hotel , i have been staying in for the past 2 weeks since i got here in Thailand 6 weeks ago for work relation but yesterday i just needed to get out for a walk people were telling me it was like a ghost town out there.

So with only a handful of people out there i decided i would put my mask on and take the walk thinking only a handful of people out there i would be pretty safe. I don't understand how a prison can survive in a prison cell.

In the times before when i had been to this city park i have known it to be thriving with people either walking around , jogging , relaxing reading a book or families having a picnic by the lake but today i feel i am alone in my own backyard.

The one good thing , i was enjoying the beautiful mother nature of spring around me everything was blooming so colorful and vibrant it just made me feel that everything will come back in a purified form again and stronger just like Hive has ๐Ÿ˜Š

Even the gyms in the park were closed up and tape off like a crime scene but all has to be done this way to avoid more spread.

You know despite all that's going on with this virus , i was so happy to be amongst all this beauty but while i was walking around i was praying for all them sick people out there and hopping that they will pull through to be able to come out and see all this beauty again.
