Model Answer:

Having been born and also raised for the most part in a nice countryside, I have always held a certain affinity towards villages. In fact, even after settling down in the city for almost 20 years, I make some special efforts to visit a village once in a while, just like I did about a year ago, and here is the story of that visit.

On a fine, spring morning, about a year ago, when I was getting ready to start my day, one of my close friends called me and told me that he was going to visit me in a few days. When asked about the reason behind the visit, he told me that he wanted to take me to “Tighana” village for a short visit (by the way, this “Tighana” village, which I have already visited a few times before taking my friend there, is located on the northwest side of my city and about 70 kilometres away from it).

Moving forward, the visit took place as per the schedule and we did end up being in a very beautiful village. After arriving there, first, we took some rest at a local restaurant to refresh ourselves with some snacks before walking for a good 30 minutes to find and possibly buy also a good piece of land where he can grow his guava garden. But, as we were walking along the village roads, we didn’t forget to talk to the happy, local residents there. At some point, we even stood by for a while to see how the young boys were trying to catch fish in a pond with their bare hands from underneath the water!

Anyway, after visiting that village, again, I felt like everything was so familiar to me as if it was my own village and backyard. It also made me feel very much alive with all the natural greens around me. Finally, the visit also allowed me to rediscover the natural order of life – a natural order that teaches us to be happy with whatever little we possess.
