The lifestyle in a city and in a countryside are very different because there are infrastructures in cities but there are not in countryside, like transports, high buildings that make the landscape very different. In the countryside, it's an agricultural lifestyle, where you'll find the peasants. If you compare the populations between cities and countryside, you will find the population of countryside older than in cities.

The people in countryside tend to be friendlier. Since it's small, everybody knows each other. But in cities since it's sometimes so big that people are very distant from each other, there's no real connection, and that leads to indifference.

In France there are lots of schools in the cities, it's an obligation till you turn the age sixteen and everybody has to be placed somewhere. In countryside there are like one school for a bunch of villages that are near and only one level so it's sometimes all ages together with one teacher.

Actually there are lots of differences between living in countryside and living in a city. Sometimes certain differences between them can be a medicine to those people who are fed up from the daily routines of city life, therefore looking for a little retreat and shelter.

Minor locales house people rather quite and naive than trying to catch up -who often fail- with the unimaginable rapidity of the metropolises and getting behind the time. People living in cities deal with such lush, distant, but sometimes interrelated details that make a person bind in place. People grow weary because of distances and busyness of cities and sometimes it takes ages to accomplish one simple goal. Nevertheless it's not the same in countryside! Everything is under your hand; you can finish your work within days, sometimes even within hours... Because distances are short, the population is low. As long as these facts supply you with gainings, you begin to like the countryside. The most important earnings of these gainings, is "time". By this means you can do various things. You can give spare time to your family, find time to develop yourself in your major branch, be in social activities that you couldn't find the time to participate; most important of all, is you can produce...

In countryside relations are warmer. People are more charitable and loving. They try to help and support you as long as they are able to. Mostly everybody knows each other. They greet you whenever they run you up against. On contrary of these facts people living in cities are so obsessed with their works that they could be unaware of events happening around them. Consequently they maybe unaware of their neighbors and colleagues surrounding them.

Besides, once beginning to live in countryside and getting used to these simplicities; namely when it becomes a regular thing not to see a traffic jam around you, you may miss your *high life standard* that you left behind you. Life can seem to be on a regular, monotonous basis that doesn't seem to be the life you thought at first. So you got to be balancing both sides of life styles.
