What’s Going On?
From the moment I was out on my sun rise balcony at 6.45 it felt different. Instead of just bird song there was noise from the town waking up and lots of traffic, lots of activity.
Everyone and his dog was heading to the local dump…and all the roads were full of cars. Supermarket car parks looked like they did before the crisis. It all looked very normal. What had changed?
Our restrictions on social distancing have been different from other places, what with the population being smaller and easier to control. We have to stay two meters apart. Norwegians like a bit of space in general.
I guess everyone is desperate to get rid of stuff they have been clearing out these past weeks. We went in to lockdown very early. It looked today as if everyone had the same thought. The amount of cars on the road was as in a normal day. Very strange.
It was quite sad in a way.
