Morning in a Big, Strange City

Big cities all have their own unique character, from the skyline down to the underground tunnels. But on a sunny morning walking in the city center, some things seem remarkably familiar.

There are the office drones, hustling to work and meetings. There’s the high-society lady, draped in fur and jewels and surgeries, just out for a stroll before an exhausting day of tea and gossip. Watch out for intrepid joggers, weaving past would-be tacklers and taxis.

Walk past a tavern and get a whiff of last night’s party, beer and isolation hanging thick in the morning air. Streets are crowded with delivery trucks, construction vehicles, and yawning taxi drivers gazing hopefully at every passing fare. And there’s the tourists, ambling about and lost in their maps.

Could be any city.
