Little alleys are the best for wandering as the road noises drift away and a better sense of daily life can be found. Normally I'm a little concerned for safety, walking through tight corners in the dark narrows behind and between buildings, but I've yet to be mugged and that can only be a good thing. But really, it amazes me how safe the world is, and I'm curious to know if American cities really are so dangerous or if I've just been made paranoid by incessant newscasts. In Malaysia, my errant path is met with little more than curious stares or even nothing at all. I'm not sure what it might be elsewhere. At the same time, a global comparison is hard and I suspect what looks good from one angle looks bad from others.
