    at first it actually feels a little weird because you're just not used to the lack of cars. You still have to watch out, especially with so many different types of transportation all around you, but everything feels so much more intimate and immediate. You talk to a lot of strangers you otherwise wouldn't. And the small businesses love it, they get a lot of walk-in traffic. A lot of them have little tables out with free lemonade and things like that, it's just a good time.

    Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense regardless of how it turns out. - Vaclav Havel
