I really want to spend rest of my life near nature.Living in the city becomes nightmare.City is crowded with selfish people who are wearing different kinds of marks.They don't know what is human rights,what is sorrow, what is love. Sone people in the city are just like roborts.They are heartless and cold blodded people. Furthermore traffic jam is one of the biggest problem in my city.In the peak hour,all of the roads around the city is filled with traffic.This year,I need to get up more earlier than before.I had to take 2 hours to go to school from my home.In fact,the exact time needed to go to school from home is around fifteen minutes.But now ,I need to take almost 2hrs to go to school.Furthermore,city is filled with carbon dioxide and dust.The more traffic ,the more carbon dioxide will be.Plants are the answer if Carbon Dioxide.These days,plants are frewer and frewer.The ammount of carbon dioxide and the numbers of plants are not propotional.Therefore,weather started to change and ozone layer is damaged now.The weather in the city is too hot.There's enough plant.There are thousand of cars and vehicles.The air is no longer clean.Ice mountain started to melt and floding areas becomes larger and larger.There were three seasons in my country,Summer,Rainy and Winter season.Since 20s Centuries, Winter season is vanished .In the Rainy Season,while it's raining,the weather is still hot.That's why I want to move from city to country side near nature.When I was young,I grew up in the rural area.My whole house was filled with thousands of colourful flowers.There was a small stream passing through our garden.Different kind of birds com near stream to drink or take a bath.My mom is interested in gardening and planting.I get this hobby as a gift from my mom.I could hear birds singing as soon as I get up.It's just like a sweet alarm sound.The sun shine is so bright and warm.The air is so fresh and cool.There's no traffic jam,no selfish people,no dust,no sky scraper,no carbon dioxide in this rural area.If u are too tired and want to run away from the city,leave all of them and escape from that boring robotic city.

I like modern technologies but I do love nature more! I don't like long towers and skyscrapers that seem to touch the sky so I don't like New York city. We can't see the full view of the sky. It is interrupted with bounded with tall modern buildings. I feel I can't breathe well when I see New York city in movies. I just want to pass my life simply by living in a house made of wood and brick with one storey or two and near the forest or river or waterfall. And there will be many flowers and a hugely wide grass space. This is a lovely house in my dream. I hope I will live at that house in my dream with my family one day!

When you’re in nature, you don’t have to look in mirrors. Instead, you’re either focused on the setting around you, or on what you are doing, like climbing, setting up a tent.
When you’re alone in nature, or with a loving friend or group of people, you get sweet relief from sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, and all the other ways we oppress, stigmatize and belittle one another.
On the contrary, nature displays incredible diversity in all her glory. There are fat trees and skinny ones, short ones and tall ones. Within a single clump of yellow flowers, you might see a pink one and realize that it’s a mutation. In nature, we don’t say ‘How wrong! That flower is different; that tree is fat!’ Instead, we say, ‘How beautiful!’ This impacts us below the level of thought.

I like nature I like to see the green areas, the less pollution that exists the pace of life is more healthy and less stressful, but would not change the facilities that exist in the city by the great technology that exists and ease of communication. I like nature for a holiday, a short break time.

I like to spend time in the nature. Whenever I have free time, I often go to the beach, or go picnic with my family. Sometimes I like something more dangerous like climbing mountain or ride a boat in the river. I love nature because It is still, quiet, clear and I feel comfortable.
