Walking is painful

There's something about the dim light, the smells and the detritus of an alleyway that draws me in. Oh c'mon, who wouldn't take stroll down Diagon Alley, if they had a chance? There's magic in the air and history, the reek of past ages, cutthroats and cutpurses, perfumed doxies, hustlers, pimps and drunken dandies.
