When I was a schoolboy and was given my own room, I established the Republic of Rumia with myself as sole inhabitant and Supreme Dictator General For Life. Rumia was where my imagination was fertilised, where my toy animals became a reserve forest, where my cars had a highway built for them, and where I was king, rebel, police, pirate...anything I wanted to be. Rumia disappeared when we moved away to a smaller house. It is for me the natural name for my blog.
The city air cleansed, I can smell jasmines again. Monsoon is here. - me
The fresh smell of earth dispels foul urban odours. First rains pour down glee. - me
City roads after rain emit fetid smells much worse than monkey farts. - Max
