I put my step onto just irrigated soil. There is an overwhelming smell of wet Basil, grass and soil. From among the Apple trees, stars seem to be shinier and bolder than ever. No cloud and dust could suppress them. The Milkyway band is located above the nearby little forest similar to king's crown. Not too loud, I ask my far friend to come to me and see this dazzling scene. In the absolute silence, he hears my voice and responds. There is a huge silence under the stars. There is no sound other than a little river nearby, some chirps of insects and songs of frogs.
