Describe the neighborhood where you live.
The neighborhood i live in is right outside of the city. It is almost like living the city, except that it has houses instead of apartment buildings. The houses are small with small yards. People in the neighborhood really like to garden, so there are plethora of flowers and nice plants. It is very pretty. We are near a bus stop, so it is easy to get to the city. There are a few small stores that sell food and newspapers and things like that.
What do you like about living there?
What I like about my neighborhood is that it is close to the city. It is very easy to get to work. Also, it is not very expensive. I can afford to live there and not spend all money on living cost.
What do you dislike about your neighborhood?
My neighborhood is in a boring area. If i want to do something interesting like go to a movie or a concert or if I want to shop a good stores, I have to go to Jakarta. It is quiet, so it is good place to relax, but it is not a good place to have fun.
What kind of neighborhood would you like to live in?
When I start making more money, I am going to move into the city. I would like to live in a city neighborhood that it is full of activity. I would like to live near restaurants, stores and clubs. I would like to live in a place where I can walk out my front door and be right in the middle of everything.
Do you like walking? Why or Why Not?
I dont dislike walking, however i cant say that I particularly like it. I walk to the bus stop every day, and I often walk to the store because it is nearby. I walk to get places, but I never walk for fun. I dont think it is an interesting thing to do.
Are there places you can walk near your house?
There is a nice park not far from my house. It has pretty gardens and some walking trails through the woods. A lot of my neighbors go there to take walks. It is also easy to walk around my neighborhood because there are sidewalks everywhere.
Do people in your country like walking? Why or why not?
Walking is popular in my country. A lot of people walk for their health. In fact, there are walking clubs. Often, early in the mornings you can see groups of people walking around the neighborhood together. These are the walking clubs. They are together every morning, i think.
What other kinds of exercise do you enjoy?
I never walk for exercise, but I enjoy bike riding. I often ride my bike on weekends. I go wherever I can find bike trails. There are a lot of them near where I live. When the weather is bad, I go to the gym and use the exercise machine there. I really like doing that. I like swimming too. I swim with my friends every week.
