Weekly Discover Challenge: Flâneur

Alternative title: two sides of the freeway.

Along this stretch of the coast, I often drive great distances to get to a shop or a hospital or just to visit friends. When travelling on the freeway, looking towards the interior I see the rural areas where informal settlements are home to many locals; life is hard and workers toil all day to put bread on the table. Looking towards the ocean I see the resorts where holiday-makers are enjoying the beaches, the water and the sun; these are mostly also workers, although maybe from a different walk of life, who work hard during the year to afford a holiday at the coast.

I observe, but do I remain detached?
