Amusing ways to fritter away time during lockdown🙂

During this pandemic, some of us might have wished that we had travelled to our hometown earlier. After all, if you are living away from family, a three week shut down is a good chance to be together. And face it, the home calling is more since you are literally out of options.

No, it isn’t some app we downloaded. We joined a Zoom meeting together, from 5 different countries, across 3 continents.

So what are the wackiest idea you have come up with ?
