Why The Road Is Blue

9.4 km - 59.56 min. Cool and sunny, quiet.

Was running and thinking today. Because it was mostly thinking I was looking down at the road surface, mostly, not around. Suddenly noticed: the asphalt is blue, not grey. At first I couldn't understand why the colour changed, but then realized that it's because the sky is so bright blue today. So the road reflects the blue of the sky - and everything else does.

Everybody knows that the sea can be blue or it can be grey, but so does the road.
