Road traffic was busy. People passed me, a man and his various occupations. A young woman with a child whose eyes were reddened with tears, the boy demanded that his mother buy him something his mother prevented him from receiving. A couple of lovers strolled around, perhaps hoping that tomorrow would not come soon. I felt lonely, even though I was engulfed in a crowd of people.
