Particularly churches in the cities. For example I ate my lunch in Mount Street Gardens, and many people who work in surrounding Mayfair come to eat their lunch too. Some of them are content to be surrounded by the beautiful flowers, but sometimes...

Sometimes, I am walking along a road with a slight curve, and look ahead and it looks like the pavement is disappearing, but there is nowhere to cross to the other side safely. I begin to wonder if I will become stranded, as I don't like crossing...
