The bars, restaurants, museums, libraries, etc opened on Monday here with some limitations like they need to stop serving alcohol at 10pm and only half the usual amount of customers are allowed in indoor premises. A few weeks ago I was thinking that I'll probably be one of the first ones in the bars once they reopen, but to be honest, once I took a look at the crowded bar terraces I thought fuck that. Not going to go there risk getting corona just to drink overpriced beer. I can drink overpriced beer at my own home in safety just as well.
TBH, and this is a bit stupid I know, it was kind of exciting traveling and going to places when the sort of mini-lockdown was happening here. Sitting in the empty train cars, people eyeing each other suspiciously. Empty malls with most of the shops closed. Having to walk to the airport because no public transport going there and having your papers checked multiple times and asked about your destination. Eating outside because only take-away was available. A kind of adventure right? Now everything is crowded with half the people seemingly drunk and it feels fucking annoying.
It's a bit mind-boggling that now everything is supposedly safe all of sudden while the virus is still on the loose? And people are acting like things are back to normal. Second wave coming..
Anyway, I'll go to the office for the next week and the following week I'll hole up in the countryside alone.
