my temporary city has already gone away for easter vacation
I was one of about 5 people taking breakfast in the normally bustling cafe today. When I grabbed a cab, the driver said he'd been watching a movie for the last 45 minutes and drinking a coffee.
The whole place has already gone on vacation for Easter.
I suspect I am one of a handful still working in this city. Empty streets at what would normally be peak rush-hour. Just bicycles where there would usually be lines of stationary cars.
Something of a contrast from the flurry of people around even the gas-mask stall in London's Portobello Market last Saturday.
