Edinburgh streets that are usually busy with traffic, tourists and locals are eerily empty. A lot of the traffic is gone, the tourists are gone. The locals are still here, going about their essential business and daily exercise.

Pandemic Edinburgh is an opportunity that offers new views of the city. I do enjoy the reduced motor traffic. The city, however, could do with more space for pedestrians even though the tourists are absent.

I am looking forward to seeing the streets busy with people again. The cars can stay away.
