more walking


today i walked a few hours, mostly in the same areas i usually do but i allowed myself to meander. one street over from the more busy street are some tail end businesses to the downtown area and then slowly it turns into a neighborhood. i found one brick building that looked defunct, couldn't tell what it was but a little farther down from it was a small courtyard with a wall of heads. what an unexpected thing to see here. i still never know what exactly i'm going to find as there are so many plots of land with jungles of bamboo trees choking your vision. on first glance you would think this a barren place, devoid of anything unique (except for dan's houses peppered here and there). so i'm always happy when i find something fun and different.

i walked to the mall too, fully expecting it not to be the typical mall. and it wasn't. it was sparse with over half of it sectioned off and used for criminal justice offices, there were vendors in the center of the mall selling their goods, a few semi large stores and a little coffee sand which shop. that was IT. kind of liked knowing it was so simple and innocuous.

Don't tell me. They're dreaming of Glamour & Glitz.

Seriously, that's beautiful. And how cool that it was an unexpected sight. That enlarges the mystery, doesn't it?

I love walking around, too. If you go off the beaten track, who knows what you'll find...just this one fact makes me wide-eyed and ready for adventure--opens the senses, gives me a feeling of the 'new'. Even in a very old place (which the earth is) :-)

The faces caught my attention in my sidebar. Intriguing!
