Yesterday we had a family get-together with some relatives who had arrived to visit from abroad. We were supposed to meet them at a place which is one or two short bus rides away (depending which buses you use, and /or how much you are willing to walk…). My step daughter and her children arrived by car, and my daughter and family also went by car, also ferrying Ricki and my husband, That left me to get there on my own. In the end, I fiqured that I could get there faster by foot than by bus, and that the walk would be an easily doable 45 minutes. So I walked. And I arrived first. (I quess the others left a bit late…) Often I have seen, however the phenomenon that people who own cars simply don’t WALK anywhere. All I can say is a pity on the car-owners’ health and (with the high price of gas) wealth. Maybe you don’t have to take a car EVERYWHERE????
