I have often referred to bad drivers as clowns. And taxi drivers are among the biggest clowns of all. So imagine my delight when I actually saw a real clown driving a taxi! That's a cop standing next to her.
Also in this photo notice the street lights. That's the lighting throughout the historic center of the city including on our street. It always makes me feel like I've stepped back in time.

At sunset my husband and daughter and I went to a sea turtle release on the beach. We were asked to select a turtle from a plastic tub, then set it down and watch it make it's way to the water. This turned out to be fitting somehow on the day my friend was dying. Something about the fragility of life, being assigned that one life randomly to identify with, feeling the amazing strength even the smallest creature is born with, watching it push itself toward the water's edge with such innate determination, the beauty of the sunset.... It came home that there are an awesome number of unknown things that can happen in a life, a lot of them not-good, but helping others and touching others and all the beauty around us make the awful and scarey parts worth it.
