Hot town

I chose today, likely to be the hottest day of the year so far, to start my early-morning productivity program. It involves getting in a 45-minute walk before getting ready for work.

7am is not early for many people, but it's rare that I'm on the street at that hour. There are a lot of people out and about: men in suits try to hail taxis downtown (good luck to them; 9 out of 10 are already full by the time they reach the 90s); construction workers in hard hats gather underneath scaffolding waiting for work to begin; everywhere, bleary-eyed dogwalkers; and everywhere, homeless people trying to get a few more minutes' sleep before shops and churches open up for the day.
