Lockdown in Wapping
Dear Residents of Battery Point
No, I am not writing from the Wapping a mile away from Battery Point on Hobart’s waterfront, but the one in London. Wapping London lies beside the River Thames to the east of the City of London.
Having been in Hobart at the turn of the year visiting family in Battery Point, Hobart and Tasmania continue to be fresh in our minds. We have now been in lockdown for eight weeks. It has changed our lives significantly as your lockdown in Hobart has changed yours. My husband and I are at home in our flat all the time, working from it and not socialising with others face to face. We cannot travel on public transport on which Londoners are normally so reliant. Then there is the hygiene and the quarantining of things coming into the flat.
