What is it like to live in a city?
It is preferable to live in a city for me. Numerous factors make it better.
Oh? Could you provide any examples?
It is unquestionably more appealing in the city than in the country. There’s still so much to see and do!
True, but the city is more dangerous than the countryside.
Correct! People in cities are less open and welcoming than those in rural areas, and the streets are less safe.
I’m sure the countryside is more peaceful.
