September 2020

And so it goes. Each day we look at the internet sites to see if there are any new locally-transmitted cases of Covid-19 in Thailand and there aren't any, but yet Thailand isn't admitting any tourists.

Meanwhile, here in Chiang Mai many of the restaurants and shops that opened when the lockdown ended have closed due to lack of business.  It's a ghost town.  In-country tourists who have come comment that there isn't anything to do. The local attractions tried to reopen but then closed.  

Please consider supporting to our our food initiative, described in John's story, below. The social safety net is poor here in Thailand, especially for undocumented people.  

I know many of our readers are from countries where Covid-19 is still claiming lives. But here in Thailand, it is claiming lives in other ways.  We need your help.
