    How I wish I could smell the scent of young grass in the city… Living in a cemented jungle is like inside a four walled cell where nature is often unseen.

      I know what you mean. I live in Tokyo, which is also a concrete jungle. But we are fortunate to have some city parks. They aren’t all that big but still have small lawns and woods where we can enjoy at least some hint of the scent of nature.

        Great for you… 🙂
        We do also have such wildlife and parks in the city but during this time of the year, it’s so hot and humid to visit these places. I’d rather go home and relax… LOL!
