Over long travels far and wide, I have come to the great realization that I am a city person. I love the huge metropoli, with their sky-high real estate prices and crowded streets.
Ever so often… usually when I’m stuck in traffic for about 45 minutes on a Tuesday afternoon, I claim that I want to run away to a more pleasant environs. Where there are rolling meadows and clear air and clean water and… well… pretty much nothing else.
About 20 minutes into ‘sitting quietly and contemplating nature’ and I want to run to a coffee shop, take in a movie and shop at my neighbourhood grocery for everything from instant rava dosa mix to olives stuffed with pimientos.
As I said, I’m a city girl.
But on a recent excursion into more pristine environs, I had the luck to catch some of mother nature’s truly outstanding creations.
