The value of time

Recently in a hotel, I asked an attendant at the front desk to call a taxi.

She asked where I was going. I told her the name of the temple I wanted to visit.

She replied that I did not need a taxi as it would be “only” a 40-minute walk.

It is amazing how different cultures measure distance and value time.

I ended up walking to the temple.
