Social Distancing day 45: 1st May 2020
After well over a month this is my first brief visit to the city centre of Newcastle. It was a surreal experience. The first thing you notice are the closed shops; each with their signs on closure, the Covid 19 virus and the need for safety. The city centre was not completely bereft of people, but the few that were there seemed to either be workers or, like me, on a walk, wondering what the world outside looked like now.
