If this is part of the Harry Bakery on Soi Buakow and the bread is fresh this could be good for me.

Electronic thermometer fitted in a number of shops.  One holds hand near to thermometer and it shouts out normal temperature.  This one in local 7 11.  Also one at entrance to condo supervised by security officer.

^^^ Interesting to see Pattaya through the eyes and camera of someone who hasn't been here for awhile. Temp sensors are now ubiquitous at every shop and store. Notice too the paper log books with a pen that everyone can share to log their comings and goings at shops if they choose to do so. Fortunately that part is rarely enforced.

One thing I noticed the other day that wearing a mask when out and about has become so ingrained that when I forget to put a mask on before I head out I stop and think, what am I forgetting. :default_crybaby:

How the heck did they get that 747 there?. Bit of a daft question, obviously.

Great walkabout JL, very eerie as already mentioned. The pic which really does it for me is the lottery ticket seller.

Great walk about John. It's good to see what the streets look like today. Like most BMs.... l miss not being there. I am very envious of you sir. Look forward to many many more photos.

Thank you so much for putting a smile on my face and a little warmth in me heart.

All my best wishes to you and Misses JL

Great pics JL, thanks for taking the time to post them.

Walking St seems to be a right state, I think @Jambo mentioned it elsewhere, I take it that's civil engineering works and not a pre cursor to ripping the place up?.

Saddens me to see the beer bars with the seats turned up on the bar, we're pushing mid way through 2021 now, the place has been closed for over a year (save for a temporary opening), and the damage is easily visible.

If you'd told me these pics were taken at 0700 on a Buddha Holiday, it would be believable, but mid week / weekend even during a low season in non covid times would still have more movement and there would still be signs of some life.

They are laying new under ground cables, it's an ongoing project to remove all of the above wiring.

It is a sorry sight right now but after the work and when things open back up, hopefully it will return to something like it's former glory.

With the removal of that wiring from sight, it will immediately look a lot better (as well as being a lot safer).

Looking at these pics of a lifeless city, the hundreds of millions in economic commerce that has ground to a halt, is just unimaginable to comprehend. It's like a blind man regaining his sight during the middle of a power outage at night.

As horrible as these scenes are at the present time, I honestly believe that once the go ahead is given to reopen the city with little to no restrictions, I think the town will come to life in a matter of weeks. There has been too much investment in shops, infrastructure, condos, etc....to let it all go by the wayside without there being some sort of economic recovery.

One thing is for sure.....that Misteregg is as determined to continue on in the face of such adversity as any business owner could possibly be, and his bar will be getting a quite sizable amount of bins from me whenever I'm able to get back. 

I can safely assume that regarding members of this board, I am not alone in that thought.

the only winners are the landlords - many of whom have reduced the rent a bit, have had constant rent from the businesses trying to hold on here with little to no income.
