Don't you think it's more challenging to be in urban area? I grew up and studied in the province.However,as I became mature I realized that it's better to live in the city for a lot of reasons. First,life here is more exciting.Second, there are more opportunities for employment.Lastly,you can update yourself on different things like technologies and fashion.So now, I have lived in the city for 7yrs and I plan to stay here for good.

I love living in our rural setting. I feel that the schools here are better for my children because there are less children in the classrooms. Another benefit of living in a rural area is that everyone knows which child belongs to which parent. Everyone here looks after each others children. The cost of living is cheaper in a rural setting as well. There are some great benefits to living in the urban area as well but for my family the rural setting had better benfits.

I was born in an Urban area , I grew up in an urban area, but there was a time I was able to experienced living in the Rural area I really appreciated it.... The sharing of foods of neighbors, the candle light in the evening because they dont have electricity and the fresh water from the spring because they dont have water filters, the fresh fish because they dont have refregirators and sleeping with windows open because they dont have aircons and dont have enemies for everybody knows everybody... same with the fresh, fruits, fresh vegetable etc. but the most exciting there is the peace of mind and away from pollution...

I live in a capital. I like my city. Here there are more possibilities. When i was a child, i visited my grandparents`village. First 2 days you enjoy the calmness, the nature, the flowers and etc. But soon you bore of everything and just want to come back to the big city.
