People in Cities are saying 'Hello' to each other!

Date walked: 11/04/2020

Time taken: 1 hour

Not quite a walk report......On my lockdown walks around the part of Edinburgh where I stay I am meeting more and more people who say 'Hello' as they pass, or 'Thank you' if you step off the pavement to make more room for them to pass and I wondered if other city dwellers had noticed this behaviour?
Common enough practice when we are out on the hills or in the countryside but something that almost never happened in the cities before the lockdown arrived. And its more often the older people who are doing this (who are generally more civil anyway) but hopefully with more people out walking for the sake of it, the habit will spread. Maybe some good will come out of this mess after all...........
