Needless to say, there’re many people here who’re simply walking about, looking at the exhibits.

They’re fascinating.

I’ve come to think of this place as a temporary museum of sorts.

There’s no shortage of onlookers.

And it sets us thinking.

About what it would take before people take to the streets.

People are waiting.

People are reading.

People are living a life.

Elegance is an attitude.

Attitude.

Attitude.

Ever ready attitude.
