I knew moving here would mean getting good use out of my good walking shoes, and to tell you the truth I haven't minded one bit. I do think that Americans get a bad rap on this score; even Steph noticed that the reason people don't walk as much in the states is that everything is so damned spread out. Unless you live in New York, Boston, Chicago or the like, you're going to be sorry if you need to go to the library, town hall, the post office and the grocery all in one go. I did this exact route today and it took me a little more than an hour.
So, are Americans lazy or victims of suburbinite culture? Discuss.
Oy vey, I'm feeling a little verklempt!
