Looking through the window.... What do I see?!

Passing cows, Greener paddy, tall Palm trees, lush green water,
Flowing breezy coconut trees and the bluest blue skies,
Pedestrians, bicylces,rickshaws, buses, lorries, bullock carts all sharing the roads, brisk ladies with large baskets on their heads, their feet rushing on the hot dry land, sweating farmers as they toil for our yield, shady naps oh! so relaxing...

Uniformed school kids with neatly braided hair,
Busy mothers as they rush to send them off to school, Fathers always relaxed in the corner coffee shops reading the latest news...,
Street vendors calling out vegetables, salt and fish
Home makers calling out for their favorite vendor lists...
Post men in bicycles bringing good tidings, passers by ask for water to keep them calm and cool...

Aromas of local favorite snacks, ice cream carts calling out after school kids, freshly brewed coffees in everyone's home, chatting neighbors, returning fathers, playing kids, screaming boys, loud speaker music from the new corner shop, flower vendors bicycling fresh jasmins, roses and more...

Working mothers rush back home with store bought dinner or snack, home makers are fresh and clean welcoming their clan...

Newspapers, magazines keep us through the night, night lights, mosquitoes, bright moon and twinkling stars, all the familiar smells make me long for my home, my home sweet home...oh! how sweet, how relaxing, my home sweet home...

Writing short stories/essay is harder than long ones. You included so much in two short paragarphs. I am looking outside Hotel window and I see a lot of it. You posted it few days back but I am glad I read it today and I can read and see outside. It matches perfect.
