Urban Driving

Earlier today Danny and I, and another BCDD volunteer, Bruce, drove out to Langley to meet up with our fellow volunteers. The trip is only about 40km but with construction, bridge traffic, and other obstacles, it seemed to take forever! My heart goes out to everyone around the world who has a commute longer than 30 minutes. I only had to do it once and it annoyed me to no end. To do this every day would destroy my soul.

On the way back Danny told us how an uncle & aunt of his in Mexico City have to load their 3 daughters into their van every morning at 5am, in order to get them to their school by 7am. Day in, day out, day in, day out . . . . Yikes!
