Crowded, smelly, busy, noisy. The smell of vomit, sewerage and spilled coffee. Dams of humanity waiting to cross the street, don’t walk, walk, surge across the street from each side, meeting mid-street, swirling eddies and vortexes of humanity. Screaming, wailing, howling, growling cars, trucks, taxis, buses, garbage trucks, ambulances, fire-trucks, patrol cars. Chinese, Spanish, English, French. Office workers, tourists, ┬áticket hawkers, delivery men, babies in push carts, dogs on leashes, joggers, cyclists.
