"Watching the World Go By"

With the comments from yesterdays post in mind, I am thinking there are lots of us out there that have a bit of a door thing happening in our lives. I guess we would all be people watchers as well. Isn't it great just sitting and watching the world go by. I remember when Melbourne hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2006, I was working in the city, so I was right in the thick of all the excitement all day long. Rather than watch that excitement pass our office window I decided to spend one night after work experiencing as much as I could. Part of my indulgence was to sit on a seat on the banks of the Yarra River and watch the world, people, animals and life pass me by for a couple of hours. What country were people from, what events did they see, are they happy, are they sad?? It was one of the best nights I have ever spent doing nothing really.
