Some people prefer living in villages and others prefer living in towns. Both places have their advantages and disadvantages. Towns are busy. Everybody can find what they want here. Children can choose their schools because there is more than one school. There are many hobby options: dancing, painting, swimming, etc. Many big buildings adorn towns. There are many people, who enjoy going to the cinema and talking to their friends in restaurants and cafes. There are many shops. The largest shops are in the centers of towns. Culture is abundant: there are big theatres, many museums, and night clubs. A disadvantage is the large amount of noise. Transportation pollutes the air. Nature is only in parks and there aren’t many outdoor activities. There is a larger rate of criminality than in villages. Villages are calm and quiet. Everyone knows everyone else and people are friendlier. Villages are surrounded by beautiful scenery. People usually have their own gardens, where they cultivate vegetables and breed animals, for example cows, sheep, hens, etc. Cats and dogs run around the family houses. When a village is bigger, there are small shops and pharmacies. People go swimming to lakes or ponds. Sometime they go fishing. There are however bad transportation connections. Children can only go to nursery school and elementary school here. When they want to go to high school and university, they must commute to a larger town. Culture is poor and there is a lack of shops.
