Town and Country Life in England
There is a big difference between town life and country life inEngland. In the country, everybody knows everybody else.They know what time you get up, what time you go to bed andwhat you have for dinner. If you want help, you will always get itand you will be glad to help others.
In a large town like London, however, it can sometimes happen that you have never seen yournext door neighbor and you do not know his name or anything about him. People in London areoften very lonely. This is because people go to different places in the evenings and at weekends. Ifyou walk through the streets in the centre of London on Sunday, it is like a town without people.One is sorry for old people living on their own. They could die in their homes and would not bediscovered for weeks or even months.
