            The quiet life of the country has never
            appealed to me. City born and city bred,
            I have always regarded the country as
            something you look at through a train
            window, or something you occasionally
            visit during the week-end. Most of my
            friends live in the city, yet they always go
            into raptures at the mere mention of the
            country. Though they extol the virtues of
            the peaceful life, only one of them has
            ever gone to live in the country and he
            was back in town within six months. Even
            he still lives under the illusion that
            country life is somehow superior to town
            life. He is forever talking about the
            friendly people, the clean atmosphere,
            the closeness to nature and the gentle pace of living. Nothing can be compared,
            he maintains, with the first cock crow, the twittering of birds at dawn, the sight
            of the rising sun glinting on the trees and pastures. This idyllic pastoral scene is
            only part of the picture. My friend fails to mention the long and friendless
            winter evenings which are interrupted only by an occasional visit to the local
            cinema-virtually the only f.mp3 of entertainment. He says nothing about the
            poor selection of goods in the shops, or about those unfortunate people who have
            to travel from the country to the city every day to get to work. Why people are
            prepared to tolerate a four hour journey each day for the dubious privilege of
            living in the country is beyond my ken. They could be saved so much misery
            and expense if they chose to live in the city where they rightly belong.
            If you can do without the few pastoral pleasures of the country, you will find
            the city can provide you with the best that life can offer. You never have to
            travel miles to see your friends. They invariably live nearby and are always
            available for an inf.mp3al chat or an evening's entertainment. Some of my
            acquaintances in the country come up to town once or twice a year to visit the
            theatre as a special treat. For them this is a major operation which involves
            considerable planning. As the play draws to its close, they wonder whether they
            will ever catch that last train home. The city dweller never experiences anxieties
            of this sort. The latest exhibitions, films, or plays are only a short bus ride away.
            Shopping, too, is always a pleasure. There is so much variety that you never have
            to make do with second best. Country people run wild when they go shopping
            in the city and stagger home loaded with as many of the necessities of life as
            they can carry. Nor is the city without its moments of beauty. There is something
            comforting about the w.mp3 glow shed by advertisements on cold wet winter
            nights. Few things could be more impressive than the peace that descends on
            deserted city streets at week-ends when the thousands that travel to work every
            day are tucked away in their homes in the country. It has always been a mystery
            to me why city dwellers, who appreciate all these things, obstinately pretend
            that they would prefer to live in the country.
