While many young people try to settle in the city, most of the old prefer to live in the countryside.
Living there, they can enjoy beautiful landscape and rural peacefulness, which help to relax their minds. The fresh and are air in the natural environment certainly gives them good health. Only in the countryside can they enjoy such interesting hobbies as fishing, boating and gardening. Above all, they love the honesty and kindness of country people, who are always good neighbours. And it is true that the people in the countryside live longer than those in the city. Not many of them suffer from heart diseases and mental troubles, which are rather common among elderly urban people.
Like many other old people, my parents are living in their native village. They are enjoying their happy life there.
