This week has seen me going away for a night for my daughter's birthday. I’ve been saving for this for over a year. We went to a city, a place I’ve been many times and always came home with a new winter wardrobe because I could afford it. This time I came home empty handed. Where we went has thousands of shops. Shops we don’t have here. I could definitely feel a difference to how my city is compared to that one. I’m thinking their government must have been more supportive during lockdown. No businesses lying empty because they had to close due to lockdown. The place was buzzing. Wish I could see this for my home town.
