On Thingyan Akyat Day, I rode my bicycle around the area. There is noone in the neighborhood except some children playing water. Even the usual coconut palms Mandat are drying up. Not in the neighborhood. The whole city, the whole city, the small towns, are quiet. Some in the community serve only traditional food. It is commendable that donations are made during this time of need. I rode my bicycle to and fro, but it was not wet.
