DP Daily Prompt: We Built This City

I love my city because it’s not huge. Going from one place to another does not take long. We seldom have traffic jams, only in the morning traffic is slow but not terrible and also in the afternoon when people are returning home from work. The super markets and the malls and shopping centers are a short distance from my house.

The schools and our only university is well equipped with books,journals and magazines we need for our daily work.

Our people are very friendly,they are always ready to help, should anyone need assistance.

Our transportation system is awesome,we have public buses and taxis  to take us anywhere if we don’t have our own car. The fare is reasonable.

We have a variety of restaurants, if we need it for a special day,like birthdays,anniversaries etc.,

The one thing that becomes a problem is when we want to fly out to different destinations,there are only a few airlines, it costs more to get out of the island and also takes longer to get anywhere because of the connecting flights.

The weather is a problem too. Sometimes our flight gets cancelled on a perfectly sunny day because of  fog.

If I were a mayor, I’d see to it the condition of the roads are better. There are too many potholes and drivers get their car tires punctured if they are not aware of the potholes.

More parks are necessary for children and their parents to visit. The existing parks should be in good shape,to keep the children safe from accidents.

Some of the public buildings need a face lift for the safety of citizens.

All in all my city is a very affordable and safe place to live in.

There are always some drawbacks everywhere we live, there isn’t a perfect place anywhere I think, it’s nice to accept the way things are in any place and do our best to adapt.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. It’s a very neat thing how humans get a certain kind of connection with places. Some feel at home in the city, while others feel most at home by the ocean, or in the mountains. There are some who feel most themselves (whatever that means) by wandering about from place to place.

    We all, whatever our choice, seem to have this innate drive to find a home.

    All good wishes,
