Recently, my parents decided to go the countryside and de-stress themselves. Initially I refused to go but I relented. I mean why not take a break from the city life and explore the world?
It was a beautiful day but the temperature decided to be surprisingly high and the air conditioner wouldn’t work properly. What a start?! We still managed to take a lot of liquids with us. Thanks to my mom who always packs food for long drives because proper access to good food was unavailable that day.
After a long drive we paused to take a break and that is what we saw.
We had a lovely afternoon spending time with the villagers who shared their experiences with us. More like stories on how their lives revolve around taking care of the farm animals and talking to their neighbours instead of watching television all day.
I kind of missed home but I also learnt to while away the time without social media. Other than the fact that it was 43°C outside, I must say the trip did go well.
