story 1
Story 1

When I come to my sister’s place I usually visit the picture gallery. I go there by underground because the streets are overcrowded. In the gallery it is quietly and calmly and I have a real pleasure watching my favourite pictures. Returning home I often have a cup of coffee in the café which is nearby The Opera Theatre. Sometimes I meet my sister after she finishes her work and we do shopping at the supermarket. After silence in the gallery the supermarket seems a real huge noisy ant hill.

Story 2

When I come to my uncle’s place I usually go to the forest which is not far from the house. I like walking there as I hate overcrowded streets. My uncle sometimes asks me to help him on the farm and I do it with pleasure. Fresh air, lots of animals around and beautiful nature makes me feel as on the other planet. Here there is no rush hour, traffic jam and noisy streets. After crazy life in the city the country seems a real paradise.
