    Down here, the Movement Control Order has eased a little, and I’m back to riding to the office (2-week split team roster, and fortnightly COVID testing). I picked up a 360 camera a while back, but haven’t had a chance to use it until now, so here’s one of the first attempts, with it just mounted on the crossbar of the handlebars (not the best position), so be kind...

    You will get the knack of it sooner rather than later.
    Keep up the good work.

    Sacked the camera crew and hired more upright citizens. A damp early hours commute...

    Here in Chiang Rai there seems to be no official word as to where we can go ?.........................I can tell by the traffic that the roads are alot busier than 2 x weeks ago.................and the price of fuel seems to be on the increase............looking forward to a few beers in a bar in Chiang Rai again when possible.

    Things are definitely ‘picking up’ again here in KL. Not yet bustling (partly because a lot of people ‘balik kampong’, and there are still restrictions on inter-Province travel.
    My agenda-driven personal hope is for a Malaysia / Thailand ‘bubble’ to come into effect, allowing crossing the land borders.

    Apart from bars, everything seems quite normal here in Udon. Face masks are still widely worn (only a few ignorant people aren't wearing them), fake phone numbers numbers are being left at store entrances (to avoid being spammed). It seems no one bothered learning how to drive during the lockdown, unfortunately...

    Likewise in the Phayao area. Still a lot of businesses to reopen though (if they are able to). Recently I have been to Nan Province with a temp check and questioning (I was let through with a big smile and photo when I told them I was tired of being cooped up with the wife and needed some time by myself), Chiang Rai a week or so ago up highway 1, with the temp check and questioning, and I went into Chiang Rai province without being stopped today on the 1021 through Thoeng. Things are improving.
