A Village Feel
9 August 2021
Our city feels like a village. A stroll on cobbled streets, with flowers planted everywhere, and little restaurants and shops buzzing with activity. It’s the best way to live – in a city that is not a MAJOR city. You get to enjoy all the amenities you need – planes, trains, internet, universities, healthcare – whatever you need. But none of that crazy rush that drive people to soulless rushing. We love our little village, our city by the sea. And – it gave me a wonderful Pride: where the entire city got behind something and showed support and inclusion, as opposed to division and aggressive victimhood. I love living here… I love the people, the climate, the culture, the history, the buildings, the open spaces.
