Comment on the following statement:
| Some people enjoy living in big cities whereas others find such a lifestyle really harmful. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that living in big cities is not good for health, while others think that it is pretty enjoyable.
I think living in big cities is exciting. First of all, big cities can offer you a lot of opportunities. There are many of theaters, museums and interesting sights to see there. Second, all new technological things like computers, clothes, cars and so on first come to big cities and then spread to towns and villages. People also earn more money in megapolises so they can travel more.
At the same time there are people who think that living in big cities is such a shame. A lot of noise, bad air, horrible nature destroys our health really fast. People work all day along forgetting to live.
In my opinion these people have a point, there are lots of such things in big cities. However, I think that one can find the way to compensate for them. There are many beautiful parks and gardens there too. One can visit an interesting lecture of a famous person or go to a concert of classical music to pacify his mind and feel good.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is difficult to find a perfect place to live. There will always be some compromises. If it is ecologically friendly, as a rule, there is not much to do there. If it is a big, industrial and polluted city, it usually provides you with numerous options for entertainment. I believe that it is up to each person to find a healthy balance between all the advantages and disadvantages.
