There is traffic everywhere you look here. In Spokane, I could sort of daydream while I walked and still not collide with anything. Today, I walked to get some groceries and some videos and took some pictures of my trek. We live on a bit of a ridge which means to get to any of the three train stations that are near us, you need to go downhill. So, this all the things I see on my walk and why I have to pay attention because I almost got hit by an old guy on a bicycle today. Thank goodness I was alone, and did not have Nanae in the carrier and was not holding Miyo's hand, and I did NOT get hit. I also had a car honk at me to get me to move out of the center of the road while I was taking this first picture. I moved, of course, but then I began to wonder if flipping the bird is a universal signal.
|Tiny and narrow street. This is the base of what we call the damn hill. We live at the top of this hill. To get anywhere, you pretty much have to go down...then up to get home.|
|Bikes are everywhere you look. Usually moving fast and not using the bell to warn you that you are in the way.|
|Miyo is eating a pizzamon. It is a little steamed bun with pizza like ingredients inside. They are at every convenience store and they are, well, convenient.|
