Extracts from this document...


16/09/08 The Traffic Jam Just as I approached the beanstalk of a shopping centre, people were rushing in and out like particles. People of all ages were present from the old and frail to the young and fresh. Over my right shoulder were two hooded teenagers... I simply strolled off with no intentions in handing any valuables over.
