The next day my host family and a few other families went to enjoy nature at a park with a playground. It seems to be one of the most exclusive parks in the city and my host family says they are lucky to have gotten a yearly membership pass. The park is about an hour drive from their apartment and we’ve gone together a few times before. Today was a sunny Sunday and the sheer amount of people and noise here was crazy. Families who had set up tables, tents, and blankets all over the fake grass were drowned out by the noise of passing cars on the highway overpass above.
