You have to get used to not too many people around here, once you leave the city. In the city, it feels a bit like being in Brattleboro, it's a little bigger but not all that much bigger. But there are people walking around (sometimes the same ones you saw the last time you walked that way). But drive outside of the city even a few minutes and the civilization rapidly gives way to emptiness and vast nature. I really love this, it answers some calling in me that I had been ignoring.
