Pullman Saigon Centre (July 16, 2021)

Saigon Jul 16, 2021

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.

Pullman Saigon Centre during Lockdown (July 16, 2021)

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.

Stay safe.
