The Disadvantage of Living in a City

  Tired of the city life, some city-dwellers opt for city suburbs as their residence. They are flocking there to avoid people-in the city, wherever you look, it’s people, people, people.

  It’s not strange for them complain about the living conditions in the city. It takes ages for a bus to get to you because the traffic on the roads has virtually come to a standstill. The subways which leave or arrive every few minutes are packed: an endless procession of human sardine tins. All the simple, good things of life like sunshine and fresh air are at a premium. Tall buildings blot out the sun. The flow of traffic goes on continuously and the noise never stops.

  Decades of years ago, people were crazy about crowding into the city. Now more and more people believe that only a madman would choose to live in a large modern city.

  寓居在城市的弊端

  因为对城市生活感到厌倦。一些住在城里面的人都盼望搬到郊区寓居。他们涌向那儿目的是为了避开人群。因为在城里无论你往哪儿看四处都是人。

  人们埋怨城里面的寓居条件是不奇特,由于马路上的交通简直停滞,公共汽车似乎要过几年才干抵达你身边。几分钟一班的地铁装满了人。无休止的人排队买沙丁鱼罐头。一切简单好的东西象阳光、新颖的空气都成了一种苛求。高大的建筑挡住了阳光,交通纷至沓来,噪声从不中止。

  几十年前人们猖獗的涌入城市,往常越来越多的人以为只要疯子才会寓居在现代大都市里。
