Day 7 of the lockdown per Directive 16 today. Pullman Saigon Centre has been dark for over two months now. Saigon is eerily quiet now at 6:50 PM. It should normally be loud with motorbikes and cars now. Even the construction site near where I live is quiet now. It is now quieter than it was during the Tet holidays.
The weather has been nice and cool again. I did not need my air conditioner to sleep last night. Looks like tonight I can keep it off as well but tomorrow it will get to 34 C according to the news before cooling off on Sunday. If there was no pandemic now, I think the big news in Vietnam would be the hotter than normal weather this whole year.
