The first civilizations formed on the banks of rivers. The most notable examples are the Ancient Egyptians, who were based on the Nile, the Mesopotamians in the Fertile Crescent on the Tigris/Euphrates rivers, the Ancient Chinese on the Yellow River, and the Ancient India on the Indus…. So it’s but natural to be drawn towards water bodies!
There is something for each one of us out there… And I know of many who prefer to laze by the water and read or just do nothing!
