This city is alive. It throbs with the beat of half a million reverberating hearts. The noise is constant. The roar of engines, an angry exchange of horns, seemingly constant sirens, a distressed child, rubbish dragging across dirty streets. The undercurrent of stress is pervasive. It’s easy to be swept along by the dramas of those who are bashing into the walls of life.

The city can be tiring.

But sometimes we have to be here. A love story brought me inside these city walls. I learnt to manage with a smile. Now I’d like to share my experiences with other city-souls in the hope that just one idea may resonate and bring you more peace and harmony.
