1) Colin Bell was driving along the B2123, on the Downs between Falmer and Rottingdean at 5.05 p.m when he was held up behind a long traffic jam. He noticed that there were no cars coming in the other direction. He opened the window to admire the view and listened to the South West wind blowing through the long grass. This must be one of the most attractive traffic jams in Sussex, he thought.
2) At 5.07 p.m this evening, Colin Bell had been held up in a traffic jam for two minutes on the B2123 between Falmer and Rottingdean. It was very pleasant because there was no traffic coming in the other direction. A motorbike accelerating at speed past the stationary traffic broke the peace. At first the noise was irritating but then Colin Bell thought that it would be very exciting going so fast over the Downs.
3) Colin Bell was stuck in a traffic jam on the B2123 between Falmer and Rottingdean at 5.12 p.m this evening. He noticed that his right arm was burning in the sun because he was resting it on the opened window. His other arm was cool from the breeze coming from the other window. Was it possible to be hot and cold at the same time? He thought.
4) At 5.19 p.m. this evening Colin Bell noticed an old lady standing at a bus stop as he drove along the B2123 between Falmer and Rottingdean. He wondered if she was enjoying the lovely evening but she looked bad tempered and tired. A few minutes later, he drove a young lad at the next bus stop. He was wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses and was listening to his ipod. He looked like he was having fun. That old lady needs an ipod, he thought.
5) At 5.29 p.m this evening, Colin Bell drove into the village of Rottingdean along the B2123. After being stuck in a traffic jam on top of the Downs, the village seemed very busy. It even reminded him of downtown Manhattan. There was a lot of activity everywhere he looked except on the village pond that was empty except for one duck that looked rather lonely.
