SUNDAY POST: City
I should mention here my love/hate relationship with cities, particularly with the one I inhabit. It is Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, a bustling town covering an area of 3,719 km2 with a population of over 1,200,000. Yet, as so many others it has its good sides.
What attracts us to cities? Is it friends, family, good schools, jobs, culture, entertainment, the dread of commuting, promise of a better life? All these reasons are valid to me, and though I get tired of all the hustle and bustle, I don’t see myself living permanently anywhere else…
Have a look at the cityscape I took on my morning walk. The enclosed music is by my favourite band Yello (Till Tomorrow).
