It’s amazing how predictable the park is. Most of the non-permanent things and people guide described where exactly where they should be. Not just ice cream stands and such, but homeless people, an asian couple taking their wedding photos, and a gondolier.

It was disconcerting trying to parse the actual noises of the park from the ones in the soundwalk. I kept feeling like I was about to walk into someone or get hit by a bicycle. This seems like it’s a great way to take people to an ‘alternate’ reality, but that it disconnects them too much if the goal is to get them familiar with their surroundings.

The myth of Orpheus and Eurydice has never really resonated with me, but I think it’s time that I take another look.
