I was en route to the subway last week and passed this, and, despite the fact it was raining, stopped and took this (blurry) picture once I realized that my last two international destinations were right next to one another. Mere coincidence, but it resonated with me enough to attempt photography while holding an umbrella. (I mean, there are 99 of them — someone do some permutations to figure out the odds they’d be next to each other.)
This is particularly timely because I am celebrating 370 days without an international incident*, and humorously relevant because the Lima walk sign is more a run sign, and thus more reflective of my Peruvian experience, chasing down muggers and all.
*If I had absorbed more in graphic design class perhaps I could have created an alternate version of one of these signs to accompany this.
