I confess I love trees. I really enjoy every single green corner of this city. After 8 years living here I’ve seen how some beautiful trees have disappeared from this very unique city’s scene. It’s a pity, I know.
It seems trees are not too attractive for some architects when they plan their projects. Sometimes is easy to miss the shadow some huge trees used to bring here and there; especially in the summer.
However I know a place where you can escape and hide from those annoying city noises, a place where you can sit anywhere to read peacefully or walking slowly over earthy corridors hearing the wind’s effect on tree’s leaves. I will tell you this secret, please keep it jealously, I’m talking about Turó Park, one of those very special and favourite corners I have.
Sometimes I play a sort of game, a kind of personal feng-shui. I try to find the right spot to sit and watch carefully, paying special attention to my most close environment. What a pleasure seeing how almost nothing’s happening. There’s just green leaves and me, maybe the birds, maybe some lovers, maybe the one you’re looking for too…
You won’t find this place. This place will find you like it did with me some years ago. It’s the perfect place to meet someone else or close some important business deal, having a first date or writing these notes. I would say more about Turó Park but there are so many things to keep quiet…
