I just realized that I’ve often lived and worked in different places where I had to cross water and boundaries to get there. Examples:
- Lived in Boston, Ma; went to school in Cambridge, MA
I crossed the Charles to get to school, crossing town and county (from Suffolk Co. to Middlesex Co.) boundaries in the process
- Lived in Menlo Park, CA; went to school in Stanford, CA
I crossed the San Francisquito Creek, crossing town (actually going through Palo Alto briefly) and county (from San Mateo Co. to Santa Clara Co.) boundaries in the process
- Lived in Menlo Park, CA; worked in Palo Alto, CA
I crossed the San Francisquito Creek again, crossing the same boundaries.
- Lived in Songshan, Taipei; worked in Neihu, Taipei
I crossed the Keelung River to get to work. I’m not sure what, if any boundaries I crossed.
I don’t know why I noticed this, but there it is.
