Seven billion and one

Two days ago there were suddenly 7 billion people in this world. Suddenly, since it is only 12 years since we were 6 billions. And 50 years ago we were only 3 billions. Since the world are so crowded it feels a bit strange to live in a place were there are almost nobody.

I go around quite a lot in the woods nearby, and in the mountains. I seldom meet anybody in these places. But even on the roads were I live there are almost nobody. Nobody walking the streets between October and May, but of course somebody in the few houses and in an occasional car passing by. So it is a bit strange to know there are so many people, when there are so few around here.
