Tuesday 24th March, 2020: The first day of the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s lockdown to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In Central London the streets were abnormally quiet, it felt as if nearly all of society had been sieved away, and only the homeless were left on the almost deserted streets. London has an estimated 170,000 homeless.

  1. Aah I’d wondered if you were stuck in Gambia right now but this post answers that. Strange times. It’s hard to get my head around not being able to travel – especially between NZ and South Africa or London for a while. I’m guessing you’ve got plenty of project work to keep you busy.
