Encounters On A Corner

Open Road!

The closest corner to where I live seems to be a trouble magnet. Earlier this week I came across a cyclist trying to change her very first flat tyre in the dark, and not really knowing what to do. This afternoon a motorcyclist had run out of petrol and he needed to know where the nearest service station was.

Fortunately I was walking past and able to help both times: a lit garage, the right tools, and some tutoring for the cyclist, and pulling up a street map on the iPhone for the motorcyclist. I wonder who I'll find there next time?

I always get asked for directions when I am overseas. Once in the New York, once in Copenhagen and once in London. And, yeah, I knew how to get where they wanted to go.

Cool! Must add to the fun of travelling.
