Would you ever want to live in a big city? Do you prefer the small village?
There is one reason why I would go to the city… Education. In our village we only have first grade education. When our children grow, in order to study in secondary school it is difficult around here to get them adequate lessons and teachings. This often times means that our kids have to travel away to other cities like Nauta for proper education. We hope to someday have the resources local so that we can be in constant contact with our loved ones.
Otherwise… no we love the small sense of community, where everyone knows everyone. It is better here than in the city as we have everything here and are able to live a very relaxed lifestyle. We have plenty of time to rest and rest in a peaceful environment.
If you go to the city you are required to have some sort of profession, if not the chances of surviving comfortably decreases significantly.
Here life is easier, more simple we can plant our own food which we can all eat and sell , as well as the hand-crafts that we sell – you can go get the material from nature right out of our back yard and sell it.
We live in peace here, our worries are minimal… there are no bills to pay as we have no contract with water or electricity companies, we only use natural resources. When we need water or wash our clothes we simply go to the river.
Depending on the season we always have some type of crops being raised and we raise our own animals like chickens or ducks.
