London in the covid world: a haven for introverts
London is one of the major cities of the world. People all over the world flock to the city to work, study or live there. It is seeping with history, culture, and famous for the roaring fashion, arts and entertainment industry.
Just as any other countries in the world, London is not spared from the effects of Covid-19 in 2020. Since its first lockdown in March, things were just not the same again. The number of people in any shop at any given time is limited, a 2-metre distance is required and everyone’s hiding under a face mask. And there are less international tourists too.
With less people out and about, London somehow became a nice place for introverts like me. The tube is hardly packed, very seldom I would be accidentally elbowing people when shopping at Lidl or Sainsbury’s, or trying to navigate a bustling museum on a school holiday.
Oh, and yes, I got my personal space too of course, which I appreciated so much, and something I did not experience in my past trips to London.
Here are some of the photos I took in and around London in September and October 2020. And with the second lockdown happening in 24 hours, it may be even sleepier.
