(Not so) Hidden Doors

I think it’s important to learn something new everyday.  It doesn’t have to be a life altering piece of information–it doesn’t even have to be helpful, but we should always be learning.  I think this sentiment is especially true when you are traveling or living abroad.  If you didn’t learn something new about the city or culture, then chances are you weren’t really engaged with your surroundings that particular day.

Today, I got lucky.  I learned something new AND helpful!  Want to know what it is?  I learned how to get out of the building when the clinic is on lock-down/closed to outpatients!  Though, I am probably one of the lucky…2 or 3.  I can guarantee you 10,000 people did not learn this piece of information today.

You see, there is a back door of sorts.  I’m sure this is the door the doctors normally come in.    The sad/unfortunate thing about this door is it was standing wide open.  Someone could have easily walked right in.  You would only have to know to walk past the main door and around the corner of the building.  I feel I should make some deep metaphor about “walking around the corner” to find the “hidden door” and opening up secrets and new possibilities in life, but I’m feeling a little bit lazy.  I think you can come up with your own metaphor for life.  If you have a good one, feel free to share!
