It became clear that meditation in a big city was indeed possible and effective.
Once you have done it, you realize that you can "tolerate" noises around you without being perturbed by them; without allowing them to disturb you.
This practice of observation, without attachment, was a super practice to realize that once outside in the "real world" in a major city, you can go about your daily lives without being thrown off by the noises around you.
