Running against time

Walking on the Heidelberg hauptstrasse (main street) can be such a wondrous experience. Everytime I am there and I have time on my hands I discover something that I never knew existed on that street.

Cafes, cobbled streets, restaurants, florists, lovers, street artists, musicians, perfumeries, tourists etc all add to the unique flavor of this place. People seem to look so relaxed strolling up and down, window shopping, sipping coffee, chatting that I always think that they are never running against time. Even the clock on the main street did not bother to run against time. It was the same time when I entered early afternoon and left later in the day.
