Perhaps it takes a Type A personality to understand the implied order this cobblestone back lane suggests. Exhibiting a little "Rain Man", walking only the sliver of stones down the center was clearly my sole option. The power of this pathway's design was truly awesome as I looked up and realized another pedestrian was doing the exact same thing. Shoot, I had on coming traffic while travelling the razor's edge! In a fantastic ode to Kevin Bacon's character in Footloose, we shared a brief game of chicken. Smiling at one another in our shared joke, we each briefly stepped off to pass and then quickly reestablished our foothold and continued on our linear way. With renewed order we were again, realigned and fancy free.
