village life and City life:
I would like to share another piece of interesting topic with you people. It’s something most of you would eagerly want to write on it, because it’s something we all experience in our life especially in our country Afghanistan. Are you ready? Let me kick it off with my own words.
City life or country life (village life).
Well, I think it is relative. It depends on the city and the person. A city may mean different things to different people, thus their definition will continue to change as they move from one city to another experiencing different challenges and innovations. For example living in Kabul city is far different and unique than living in Bamyan or Nooristan.
City life, people like to make out that it’s violent, busy, noisy, dirty, ugly etc, but most of the time the only of these that is true is noisy and a little dirty but the great things are that there are taxis and other facilities into the night, and so many different things to do and food is yummy and delicious, however a bit expensive.
In my opinion there are pros and cons for both village and city life. It all depends on your personality and personal preference. It's probably best to live within a handy area that's in the suburbs with easy access to the city. I just love to have my own personal home in a location where it is in the middle of my village and city, so that I can have access to both easily. It also depends on what you value more; do you value a busy lifestyle or a laid back quiet life? I like to have the best of both worlds by going away for weekends and etc.
Final thoughts, personally I like both. Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a country (village) that’s only a half hour drive away from the city? It’s the best of both worlds. I like having things conveniently located near me but I also like peace and quiet at times. I like to play in BIG yards and stuff, but sometimes in the mood to be a part of the hustle and bustle in the city.
Now I would let each one of you to share your preference between city life and country life or village life?
