I didn’t live in the countryside for a long time, but I usually spent my summer holiday in the countryside in my primary school because my grandparents lived there. Since my parents both have their work in the day, I was asked to go to the countryside when I was in summer holiday. In my memory, the life there was interesting. I had peers to play together and my grandparents cooked yummy dishes. Most importantly, I didn’t have to do homework that time.
