This time when I went to Chennai, I realised how much of the 'city girl' is still lurking in me. I have now been living in a small town for almost 34 years. But all those years never seem to have quite got rid of the affinity to cities that I have. I have learnt to appreciate the opposite of the anonymity of the city, but I still enjoy it when I'm there. I love that there are such a wide choice of things to do--even if you don't do them!
But my husband, for whom this has always been his home town, is just desperate to get out of the city--any city--and get back home. He doesn't mind visiting small towns or quiet, laid-back holiday places. But he'd never choose a city to holiday in if he can help it. Luckily, my kids are in cities so that I can visit. (But since this is their home town too, they aren't too happy about life in the city either!) I think next time I ought to go alone! So next vacation, Chennai here I come--alone:)
