Where I'm At
Greetings from Saigon. I made it back last weekend after it became apparent that borders were closing down at a sudden pace. I brought forward my return flight from Bangkok before international flights were cancelled altogether. I’ve cancelled all of my travels for the year, and at this point no one should be travelling unless absolutely necessary.
It seems that everyone who reads this blog has got the memo about not travelling, as my website traffic and travel-related income has fallen off a proverbial cliff. I can get by, but I’m worried about those who have lost their income.
There has already been enough written about COVID-19 so I won’t be filling your inbox with more of the same (though here is an excellent summary of COVID-19).
This week I have a mix of coronavirus-related and non-related travel articles.
