Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Liverpool on the fast lane
It is my brother PJ that made me discover this: Liverpool, the city that adopted me for a year and where I spent one of the happiest year of my adult life, has opened the first ever pedestrian fast lane in the city centre. Now, some of you might think it is a sign of our hectic life being more hectic when one has to walk faster, but I think this is great news. My brother and I come from a family of fast walkers and thus so are we. So for people like us who walk fast, Liverpool understands that we need a way to go at our own beat and speed without being delayed or bumping into people who dowdle, text, are focusing on their mobile for whatever reason. Beside, I hate shopping, so any way that can make me shop faster and be done with it is always welcomed. So make no mistake: I find this lane genuine progress and a great contribution from the Scousers to civilisation. Am I the only one to welcome such a change?
