I felt like moving, but just within the city. I didn’t want to leave Sari, and neither did I want to leave my friends. However, I felt like it was time I gave them and me some space and stopped my occupation of their living room.
So I packed up the Caboose and stepped out on the street. It was going to be one of my shortest walks ever: one or two kilometers.
