The world is experiencing quite a strange time these days. Many people are facing quarantines and travel is being discouraged. This means that many sites and attractions that are typically quite crowded are now so empty, they look like ghost-towns. This is what the world looks like while a global pandemic is going on. It’s pretty surreal out there.
