Exotic Moment

I have lived beyond the borders of my homeland for so many years now that I seldom have the sense of "Wow! That's exotic!" But I had one of those moments today walking home with my pressed laundry. Only in a tropical hot house at a conservatory would I glimpse such a scene. In the conservatory, I could sit in quiet contemplation. Here, I could sit beside the canal. I may even be able to contemplate. But it is never quiet. Here, quiet is exotic. ;-)

I think they prefer polluted canal water as their drink of choice. Think of the nutrients!! ;-)

Hey, that will be easy for me to remember: "canal a lily". ;-) Thank you!
