Josh started a class at Old Dominion University, which means he's driving into Norfolk four mornings a week. "Norfolk is a hell designed especially for drivers. The roads are bad, drivers are terrible, their stoplights are weird, they don't have any highway access in the majority of the city, the pattern of doing roadwork is bad, and did I mention the roads are ridiculously bad, like driving on cobblestones?." He sat at a single stoplight for ten minutes. "Parts of Norfolk look like the Dominican Republic--not downtown Norfolk itself, but the area around it, old shabby houses that aren't being taken care of", and also "I saw three people walking through the central business district in Norfolk; in the cities in Australia it was hundreds of people walking in all directions all the time."
