Garden of Eden
Dreams are just moments that come and leave quickly. It is more wonderful to experience the beautiful world as people can not only travel but also experience the real life. Therefore, writer Ray Bradbury has once said, “See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream.” The scene that thousands of friendly doves surrounding tourists and singing songs of welcome is not much different from the scene in the Piazza del Duomo square, the heart of Italy’s Milan City. During an adventure to Tra Su cajuput forest, tourists can have new experiences, live in a green space and enjoy a poetic landscape.
Nothing is greater than ignoring a hustle and bustle life, freeing one’s soul to dinghies drifting on the water surface and enjoying the cool atmosphere in the shadow of cajuput trees. Branches of cajuput trees make it like a dome while the water surface is blanketed with enormous emerald-green duckweed, giving visitors a feeling that they are embraced by the nature and relieved by love songs created by multiple kinds of birds. Such sound will help visitors relax.
Weaving through ancient cajuput trees, tourists can explore the beauty of Tra Su cajuput forest. Crossing a bamboo bridge in the forest, tourists will see white cajuput flowers with a delicate scent. Cajuput flowers are a symbol for farmers in the south who are strong and unyielding to overcome challenges of life.
Tourists may luckily come across fiery storks roaming in water or birds’ nests on cajuput branches. Clusters of pink lotus and red bougainvillea glabra, or paperflowers, and branches of yellow common sesban make the forest more beautiful and marvelous. The sky and ground in Tra Su cajuput forest seem to blend together in a frame fringed with sunlight, which is a wonderful background for visitors to take photos like in Europe.
