Amsterdam, Netherlands

It was an eerie sight, to see my dear Amsterdam without any people on the streets, not a tourist in sight. It was very quiet and peaceful, it felt like the city could finally take a deep breath and relax. And you got to see, feel and hear it’s true beauty. You could even hear the birds sing in the Red Light District…Yet on the other hand you couldn’t, and still can’t, stop thinking how this new world affects people, physically, mentally and financially.
Days became weeks, weeks became months. My thoughts wander all over the place, as does to some degree my mental state at times. Ups, downs, and anything in-between. Like a silent rollercoaster. In fact, to this day I feel like I still need to wake from a bad dream.
