I would have never thought that one day the whole world is going to star in a bad pandemic outbreak movie but the shooting has already started and many people don’t even care. Coronavirus is here and it’s going to stay. Our lives have changed very fast and dramatically. In the past couple days, my wife and I tried to gather the remaining missing things for our household to make sure we don’t have to get out of the flat for at least 2-3 weeks: this involved sanitizers, soil for planting seeds on the balcony and enough food for ourselves and our two cats.
I decided to document my encounters in my hometown Budapest, Hungary. Going out was always planned and prepared for, with double face protection, gloves and fully covered body, commuting on my faithful bike The Swallow.
