  • I deviated from the street that everybody walks from the office complexes to the public transportations. I started walking along the old railroad tracks that runs next to it. There is something about walking on the rails. It makes you feel wild and free, like a hobo from past days.

    But as the crossing came closer, and I found myself waving awkwardly to acquaintances from the office building, I realized what the problem was. It makes you look crazy. Still worth it.
