In a macro view cities have some beauty to them, the buildings, the seeming unending ability of humans to build bigger and better things, the way they function. All of that makes cities amazing, until you get in close and really look at them and realize they are hell holes. The world is an amazing place and many of us (like me) live in places where we rarely get to see real nature. Humans can produce amazing beauty; great buildings and skyline, amazing cars, the spray coming off a ski cranking around a buoy, a farm on rolling fields of wheat, etc, but we can not make anything that matches what the earth has been able to do on its own.
