David: Exchange Student’s Life in Lockdown

Hi everyone its David here again!

Just an update on my exchange journey, Melbourne is still in lockdown, and with the re-introduction of curfews in Melbourne, I had to spend most of my time at home and alone for the past few weeks. While it is sad and disappointing, at the same time I am really looking forward to when the lockdown eases and eventually lifts. The lockdown restrictions are due to ease when the state hits a 70% first dose vaccination rate which is expected on the 23rd of September. I am really anticipating for this date and have been planning on all the things that I will do when the lockdown eases. Fingers crossed!

Below is a video that I created which captures a special day that I celebrated during my student exchange in Melbourne. Although I spent my birthday alone during lockdown, thanks to technology, I was able to have a good time with facetiming and spending time with my family 😊

While there are not many exciting things to do during lockdown (except exercising, going for walks and buying groceries), the video captures footages of my walk along the Yarra river which runs through Melbourne.

Hope you enjoy watching the video!
