At that time, I’d have been only a few hundred meters away in the Kaleen Sports Club (Sporto), which is a tad scary when you think about it.

It’s kind of sad how frequently marginals are running up on Kaleen businesses these days. I currently live, work, and walk around at night in this suburb so it worries me a little.
