Life in the country and in the city
The following text is about the question whether a life in the country or in the city is better. My personal opinion is that a life in the city is the better choice. First, in the city there is a plenty of activities and sports on offer. In nearly every city is e.g. a cinema or a theatre and gyms are there, too.

It is for these reasons that I think that living in the...
