Around The City Because Of The Wrong Way

Around The City Because Of The Wrong Way

This story happened when I was in college. At that time my friend invited me to go to town S. There were 8 people who participated in the group. My group and I stayed at my friend’s brother’s house. I and the group went by car. Arriving in the city, it was still noon. We went straight to my friend’s brother’s house. After resting, praying and having lunch, I and one of my friends, just call it Ded, wanted to take a walk to know the city of S, understand that this city was still unfamiliar for us. There was a female friend who wanted to come but we forbade her.

After the evening prayer, I and Ded departed. We were both on foot, our plan was to walk for a while. Out of the house, we walked right to the port. We walked down the city streets, areas that were unfamiliar for us. When we met the traffic light, we turned right, back along the city streets. Seeing old buildings, markets, high-rise buildings, everything was the first time we saw it. After some distance we walked and met the traffic light again then we turned right again, we thought if we turn right and turn right again we would be able to go back to the original road where we left. We continued walking around the city.

It didn’t feel like we had walked for more than an hour, but we hadn’t found a place where we were going. We arrived in the city center, the town square, where many people gathered and played there. We had a rest over there while watched the crowds in the town square. After enough rest, we started walking again. We were confused about where to go, then we asked someone, “Excuse me, sir, if we want to go to‘ Paragon, where do we go? “So the man replied,” How do you go?” We answered, “we walk sir”.The man said, “Wow, it far away. Just take the bus. “We said,” Okay sir.” Then we asked another person, and the answer was the same as the first man. We were always asked how we go. We wondered how far we were from the center of the city.

Finally, we continued our journey after getting someone’s instructions. We walked again along the city streets to ‘paragon’. After half an hour we walked we finally found the road where we had left. Alhamdulillah, we were very relieved and grateful that we could return to my friend’s brother’s house. Our plan to take a walk was only half an hour, eventually becoming two and a half hours.

Escape From The Mouth Of The Tiger Enters Into The Mouth Of The Crocodile

That’s about the proverbs that correspond to the events that I experienced during junior high school. The story is when I was in junior high school, I went to school by bicycle. The distance between my house and the highway is about 4 km. There were no school buses and the other that passed in front of my house at that time, so if I wanted to go to school I would walk first or take a bicycle to the highway and then proceed by a school bus or the other. If I went to school on foot I usually leave at 5 am, arrive on the highway an hour later. But if I rode a bicycle, I leave at 5.30, usually, around 20 minutes arrive on the highway.

At that time I went to school by bicycle. As usual, I left at 5.30 in the morning. I used to ride at high speed (for bicycle size). When I arrived at one corner in my way I took the wrong track, suddenly from the opposite direction, a man cycling at a high speed appeared too. I was shocked, but the distance was so close that I could do nothing more than slightly turn my bicycle. I let go and closed my eyes. And … wuuzzz … And Alhamdulillah, thank God, it turned out that I and that guy survived, we didn’t hit each other Then I looked back at the man, apparently he also saw me. We smiled relieved, happy because there was no collision. When I looked forward, it turned out that in front of me there was a ditch as wide as my front tire. So when I looked back it turned out unconsciously the speed of my bicycle was getting to the side. And this time there’s no chance for me to dodge. And … gubraakkk … the front tire of my bike entered the ditch and I was thrown forward. Both of my palms were scratched, my uniform was dirty from the ground. Alhamdulillah, luckily for me, my bike was not damaged and I was still able to continue my journey to school, even though I was holding pain and pain in my palm and dirty uniform.

So, we must always be careful on the road. Don’t forget, always obey the traffic rules and maintain courtesy on the road.
