Week 7+ of Voluntary Self Isolation at StayHome

Rainbow over the mountains of Doi Phu Kha National Park, North Thailand

As there will not be any traveling in the next few months I will update you about living in Social Distance at StayHome during the Corona Crisis in Thailand. I started this StayHome thread on 22 March 2020 but actually since 15 March 2020 we are in a kind of self chosen isolation, we only go to town for shopping. This is week 7+ at 13 May 2020. As usual I will start with the air pollution. According to Air Visual we now have a US AQI of 51 (moderate) with an pm2.5 of 12.1 ยตg/m3. In the meanwhile it is still bloody hot and we have some summer storms but not much rain. I am praying for rain! And I am not religious! Photo above was taken at 9 May at 18:29 from our living-room. When I see a rainbow I always tell my wife "I can see you" and my wife her official name means rainbow.

Actually this should have been "Week 7 of Voluntary Self Isolation at StayHome" at 9 May 2020 but I just did forget about it. Nothing really changed, Nan province is still closed. Hotels, National Parks, Waterfalls and pubs are still closed. Open-air restaurants and Coffee Shops are open again, as long people are practising social distance and use a mouth-mask.

Monday we did go to Nan town to Big C and Tesco-Lotus. At the entrance body temperature is checked and you have to take a card with a number. Gives you the impression that only a maximum number of people are allowed in, but that did not stop all families from going to Big C and not really practicing social distance. We had a drink & cake at an open-air coffee shop in Nan town, loved to eat a real cake again!

And yesterday we had lunch in Pua town with friends. The restaurant is open-air, has limited the number of tables and only 2 persons per table. And everybody has to be wearing a mouth-mask. Well done!
