In the city. Can you walk in the city? I am a country walker. Or not? Is it the same? The country walking. And the city walking. Find the country. The Pentlands. Are they compensating? For what? See the city. From above. Ok. Onwards. And upwards. Castlelaw. Hillfort. Big hole. What were they storing? Grain. Beer? Rubbish today. Upwards round, bleak, lock in distance. Army stuff. Firing range. Danger sign. Ignore. Up. Round. Top. Mist. Down. Red danger sign, sheep, shooting. Oh no. Compass? Where is it? F…! Fence. Jump. Down. Lost. I thought I was in the city? See path. Car. Thanks God.
