Although I don’t think I will ever be able to say that I enjoy American food over my native Turkish cuisine, there is another thing about living here that I did not get to enjoy as much in Turkey.
Where I lived in Istanbul, it was very difficult to find a beautiful park or nature trail that we have so many of here in America. Although America definitely has its big cities and areas where nature and plant life are harder to find, you never have to go further than a few miles before you find some scenery or nature that is breath taking.
It was even more rare to find any sort of garden or plant life in your yard or neighborhood and the fact that we can have professional work done here is something I really enjoy and take advantage of. I don’t consider myself a hippie or anything like that, but I can’t help feel a sort of connection with nature and I try to embrace it as much as possible.
When I was a kid I used to love playing outside and I think that’s where a lot of my love of nature comes from. The vast majority of neighborhoods here in America have some sort of trees or gardens in their front yards and most of them are unique.
