A journey

I walked and walked and walked until, suddenly, I ran out of suburb. At that moment, a menacing flash of lightning. Those clouds are awfully dark, aren't they? Half an hour's walk away from home. My very un-waterproof walkman in my pocket. Was I struck by lightning? Did a single drop of rain hit me on my sweaty, bald head?

Actually, no... But I did have an enjoyable 70 minute stroll along a path I'd never been on before :) I like that I can spend that long strolling (well, usually marching) with only a few minutes of that time spent in sight of a road. The edge of suburbia is a comfortable place to be.
