An entry for the Everyday Matters Weekly Challenge #15.
Today while walking around at lunch time, I found a beautiful park near my office. It’s a big grass field with a few picknick tables and benches, which is completely surrounded by trees. When I was in this park, all I could hear was the sound of birds, the movement of the leaves, and the wind. I could see very little of the apartment buildings right outside this park. It was so peaceful…..but then only for 2-3 minutes everytime, because I could also hear the sound of the planes coming ‘my way’.
My office is located ‘pretty close’ to the Schiphol airport. This should not be a problem. The annoying part is: the road in front of my office is aligned with the center line of one of the runways at Schiphol. I can see planes showing up in the sky every 2-3 minutes during rush hour and start their landing process right on top of our road. Thanks for the double glazed windows at my office! Most of the noise is blocked so we can work ok.
