A broad double avenue cuts a neat slot in the forest,
running nearly the entire length of the former royal game
reserve at Obora Hvězda in Prague. Starting at 0, along the
left side of the graveled path, there runs a precisely
spaced line of 40 geodetic benchmarks at intervals of 25m,
placidly revealing for us the distance of 1/40,000th of the
polar circumference of the Earth.

1) In rural China, a horse driver manoeuvres his horsecart
around a tight corner. 2) Later, I wander away from the old

district. 3) As evening falls, I hear the faint sound of a
moaning man from behind a high wall.
The passenger docks at Odessa, sitting more or less at the
foot of the famous Potemkin Stairs, toasts gently in the
October sun; the salty breeze, the churning waters; the
press of fellow passengers eager to disembark; the rusty
creak of boats and dock equipment; are now nothing but a
memory, feebly rekindled in these documents.
