Nothing makes me more happy than nature! To take a walk in the woods is a good remedy when I’m stressed from work and the city rush, or I do it just because I want to. I usually do it on week-ends.
The forest of Mexico City, Chapultepec, is so close to my home that I normally go walking towards there. Right there, I stroll around the places less crowded and after a while I seat in front of the lake enjoying the view of the green water, the nature, the people rowing the boats, the ducks swiming, the squirrels, the birds, or I seat at the botanical garden under the shade of big trees. This activity brings me peacefulness and an immense hapinness.
Sometimes, after that promenade I visit some museums which are located in the area, and my day is complete.
If you travel to Mexico City, I recommend you to visit Chapultepec and the museums in the area.
Note that this photographs are from various countries (USA, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Mexico), and some others are about Chapultepec. You can see that by placing your mouse over each photo.

Chaque arbre se confie au destin de grandir,
grimper de branche pour saisir l’horizon
il acquiesce ou dit non
se maintient bras ouverts
dominant l’herbe rase
il s’agite il s’effeuille
pour cent ans perdurer
et donner à la terre la leçon du bon sens
Did you know that trees talk?
I have learned a lot from trees:
sometimes about the weather,
sometimes about animals,
sometimes about the Great Spirit.
