It’s a good place. It’s a place to feel at home and feel at ease. You won’t need to worry about the security because it’s tight. It’s a big city and well developed. There’s light there always. Good roads. Good water. Good schools.

My city is a cool place to cool off the head especially when you need refreshment. It’s a place filled with adventures and many other sightseeing locations. Being an indigene of my city gives me a very different sense of joy that no other city has ever given to me as a traveler. It is quite a place in, my city.
