Looking where you walk is a good idea anywhere.
On my morning walks down Luis Cordero, through Parque Calderone, I go down stair steps and across the Rio Tomebamba, and end at McDonalds where the Wi-Fi is free. On my way, I walk many bumpy surfaces that make an easy obstacle course.
These sidewalks and streets all have bumps and grinds that would make a stripper happy and there are multiple opportunities to take a tumble if I don’t pick my feet up.
If I fall here it is not the sidewalk’s fault and I definitely don’t want a lawyer that speaks a language I don’t understand defending me in a country where I don’t have the high ground.
Sidewalks don’t seem interesting until you spend a morning taking pictures of them.
Living in an uneven world keeps you alert and on your toes.
