I'll just skip reading that. One of the first things my bro in law taught my niece - seven, eight? to me then way young - I had a tough time absorbing it at first - was to navigate by bicycle, to camp (talk about whine), to maneuver through many kinds of neighborhoods. He's white, she's described as black.
He might have endangered her but she's thrived, even given his madness re instruction (he was peace corps) and her interest combined with resentment, a complex thing I understand. She's approaching 21, can get around a major city - probably by foot - and much else with ease.
Meantime she despises museums. Oh, well.
