Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I disliked the tiny mall I visited and it may have been a three-minute walk from one end to the other, but it was an open air walk.

To me the moa is a description of human despair.  The only relating factor for people in that setting is their car.  It's the size, it's disconnected from every other human activity, it looks like you'd "need" a golf cart just to get around inside and there is no social quality at all in any of the ´planning´.  Even if there are restaurants there, even if there is ´a bus´.

A person on foot could not survive there, a car breakdown in that area would render one helpless --short of a cell phone-- waiting for a rare police patrol, or a good samaritan that ...might give up the ´freedom of speed´ and stop the car to help.  It is car heaven and captive-human hell.

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
