A city needs people. A city is happiest when its streets and parks are filled with people, music, art and life. My city is unfortunately often empty after five pm and I think my city is sad much of the time.
However, last Friday my city was alive. There was a night market in the park and the whole city was alive with people, laughter, music and the lovely smells of delicious food. As we were approaching the park we passed people departing with satisfied bellies and souls, smiles on their faces. The streets were filled with happy people and the park was packed with people, stalls of crafts and food and entertainers. The sun was setting and people were curled up together on the grass, listening to the music and eating a delicious meal, be it Spanish, French, Thai, Mexican, Argentinian or Indian.
Last Friday my city was happy.
Next Friday my city will be happy again. You should go this time.
