  • Today I went for a walk on the other side of the river.

    From the other side of the river, they can see us. We can't see us from our side, but we can see them.

    They don't think of themselves as "them", of course, they think they're "us".

    They look at us, and we look at them.

    I think their view is slightly nicer.
