City Series – Aditi Kaushiva in London, We the Isolationists (208th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Aditi Kaushiva]

“We the Isolationists” series urges folks from any part of the world to share a brief diary starting with “I close my eyes in my self-isolation from Corona… and I see…” Not more than 100 words.
