Walking to the Park as Perceptual Mobility Training - とにかく公演へ散歩に出掛けるって感じ

For the 6th day of echolocation and perceptual mobility training, Juan is giving me some applied perceptual mobility training, using echolocation and other perceptions.
So, we the blind guys and the film crew are ready to roll out!

Today, Juan taught me how to cross a light controlled pedestrian crossing. Though I did cross pedestrian crossing, Juan told me as if I am alone, clossing streets.

I recalled my memory... First, find a push button near the intersection and press the button and wait for the traffic to stop.
Safety first. If there is no traffic stopped for the pedestrian light, don't take it and pass the turn. If traffic comes and traffic stops at the light, then cross the street fast!
When crossing, I must hear the idling cars to veer for my way to the opposite side of the street.

Then, we are at Scherer park, and Juan told me we just explore around the park.

When walking in the park, we found a public washroom.
Juan told me that public washroom has the same sign: For men, the sign has a man-shaped figure with triangle frame, and it often has braille saying men.
For women, the frame is round rather than triangle.

As we walk around the park, the camera crew followed.

After exploring Scherer park, we head back to Daniel's house.
We have to cross the street... but now I am getting used to it. No problem at all!
