Pedestrian Lessons

bike.jpgPerhaps a little harsh a title, but in the disurbingly common thread of things my tram took a slightly earlier stop because of, ‘something up ahead’. There at my usual tram stop was a police car and someone lying on the ground. I am unaware as to whether the guy was hit by a tram, a car or simply collapsed in the middle of the intersection (younger people don’t usually do that). There was the usual Australian, ‘slow down and gawk’ thing happening from the people around. It also reminds me now of the time a tram nearly squashed me between itself and rail.

Take care. Obey the green walking man!

    That’s a human thing, I think, not just Australian. Happens the world over!

    yep. The ‘slow down and gawk’ thing made our one hour trip to Niagara Falls a 3 hour trip just a few weeks ago!
