Moonface – Fast Peter

Instead of lights or stop signs, the roads on Penang tend to be one-way streets that merge either left or right onto perpendicular streets at their end. Perhaps it’s not the most efficient way to design a city grid, and it’s certainly not the most navigable, but it gives traffic a soothing, fluid feel. Like I could just languidly flow through streets for hours without stopping, the wind cooling under my helmet and around my ears. Like a pool of olive oil ceaselessly seeping. Like the way an untied ponytail falls into your hand, flaxen and smooth. [Acquire.]

Got something to say?
