Pedestrians are always crossing against the light and oh so slowly. Cars are all over the place - turning wrong and stopped trying to figure out where to go. The tracks are new and for the trolley-to-come and so they added even more overhead wires. But, the thing that I realized today was that I rarely see any of this.
I've lived here for more than 20 years and still seeing snow covered mountains from random intersections on my way home still tickles the bits out of me. You can put all kinds of crap in front of me and I always see and wonder at the snow.
