leisurely life

One of the better things about the pandemic has been urbanites reconnecting with a leisurely life. Confined at home, many have got back in touch with domestic life, picking up new hobbies along the way. The rooftop has become the new centre of life for many. Beyond just a place for taking a walk, kite flying, gardening, and even raising pets has become popular pastimes. Beyond common pets, many are opting for more exotic animals, such as the Guinea Fowl.
