I went for a short walk earlier this afternoon (alone, of course) — the kind of thing we’re still allowed to do to maintain a modicum of exercise and intake of fresh air.
This is what our street looked like — and what it, and all the streets in our neighborhood have been looking like ever since the lockdown was put into place:
So far, so good.
Then I got to the park / promenade on the banks of the Rhine, some 2 streets (and only a few 100 metres) away. It’s a popular spot year-round — in fact, it’s one of Bonn’s major parks, covering a large area on both sides of the Rhine — and I knew others would be drawn there, too; given today’s extraordinarily fine weather, it wouldn’t have been realistic to expect it to be completely empty.
But I certainly wasn’t prepared for this:
And not a cop in sight.
I sure hope they’ll do a better job enforcing the lockdown over Easter — when we’re supposed to have equally fine weather here.
