Model Answer:
Sometimes, I actually blame my parents for leaving the beautiful village, in which, I grew up. Of course, blaming doesn’t really help because now I and my family are permanently settled in a crowded city. But, fortunately, that doesn’t prevent me from visiting a beautiful village or rural area once in a while just as I did about a few months ago.

Before visiting this village, I had just no idea about it since it was very far away from my place. In fact, it was located in another province (or administrative area) where one of my friends moved back and lived permanently after finishing his university education with me. And I can certainly understand why he decided to move back to that village because no doubt, it could very easily be one of the most beautiful villages or rural areas, a person ever could visit.

At least, that’s what I had gathered during my visit that lasted for about a few days when I didn’t only get to enjoy the simple yet very welcoming village life, but also some of the most delicious, home-cooked foods that would tickle your taste buds even on your worst days! Besides, the experience of collecting beautiful pebbles from under the shallow river bed with the village children there was so unique and rewarding that I would never trade it for anything. No wonder I still thank that good friend of mine, either in a letter or over the phone, for inviting me to his village to spend my summer holidays.

Anyway, it was one of the most beautiful villages, if not the most beautiful, that I had ever visited, not only because it had so much green all over it, but also because it offered a very beautiful sight of a flowing river that twisted and turned at will. Besides, the beautiful view of the village houses there, maintaining almost a similar design and architectural pattern from above the small hills, was just too hard to ignore. All in all, it was an ideal village which I would like to visit again and again.
