I am back in the car world. In Stockholm, I can walk just about everywhere I need to go: the grocery, the gym, the dry cleaner, the pharmacy, the pub. Everything is easily accessible by foot. Here in Cincinnati, everything is accessible but it’s only by car. Public transportation is not an easy option. I don’t think that buses even come to this part of suburbia where my parents live or at least I’ve never seen one. While I can walk around the neighborhood, there’s not really anywhere that I can get to without a car. As soon as I leave the subdivision, there are no sidewalks, no paths. There is just a ditch alongside the narrow and busy road.
I am loving the driving. But I am missing the walking.
