You are in front of a heavy iron gate which is apparently the only way through a high brick wall protecting an old mansion, just visible through the gate. A road leads to the east and west along the wall. It is dawn and a thin low fog is just clearing from the cool areas. Behind you to the south on the other side of the road is a highway going south as far as you can see. You can just see the taxi that dropped you off, driving out of sight.
