LIVING IN THE CITY
Living in a city has its advantages and disadvantages.
On the plus side, there is usually a choice of public transport, so you don't need to have a car. Also, there are many interesting things to do: go to the cinema and to the theatre. There are a lot of places to see: museums, art galleries. If you want to eat there is a big choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs. If you want to relax there are parks and gardens, libraries and sport clubs. City life is full of variety and you feel never bored.
But for all plus there is a minus. There is a necessity to have a well-paid job, because living in the city is often very expensive. There is much of traffic and there are a lot of people even in the parks and gardens, especially on Sundays. And it is very dirty and noisy there. In cities there is no fresh air to breath, that's why there are always many people who prefer the peace of countryside to the city.
