Leaving Town

I just left a tropical paradise for one of the most polluted cities on Earth. I awoke to the sound of birds singing and geckos chirping.  I had butterflies flapping around my bungalow every day as I watched the palm trees blowing in the breeze. I could walk on the sandy beaches swim in the […]
