My hometown Gaochun is an old and beautiful city. It used to be quiet place. There were green hills, fresh air and many old houses. However, the area has changed a lot over the years. Now there are many new squares, new roads and a lot of tall buildings.
In the past, people could only go to there by bicycle or on foot. Many buses pass there now, people can take the taxi, car, bus, underground or light rail to Gaochun, and it is faster and easier to get there. The environment has also changed, too. The water is clearer, the tree is greener, and the air is fresher. We are happy to live in the beautiful city.
My hometown is located at the outside of the city. I was born and grew up there. It was a little village with natural scenery of green mountains, a beautiful river and lovely village houses. In the summer, I liked to go to picnic under the mountain and swim in the river. But now my hometown has changes. The mountains were blown down to build the factories, and the river was polluted by the waste water from those factories. There are no more green mountains but the smoking factories. The water of the river turns black and stinks, I can never swim in it again. And the village houses are gone too, the ugly storied houses with walls are instead. They said it is the way urbanizing is. I don’t like the changes of my hometown, it is a polluted hometown.
With the rapid development of the society,many things around our life are changed. Personally speaking, my hometown haschanged a lot.
When I was a child, there was only one blackand white TV set in our village. And I don’t know what’s computer. I often wentto school on foot. What’s more, in summer, we had to use hand-made fans to makeour temperature down. If I wanted to connect with the distant friends orrelatives, the most convenient way iswriting letters, which may lost on the way or take a lot of time to reach thedestination.
However, nowadays, there are four colortelevisons in my home and most people have their own computers. And now carsare seen everywhere. In addition, most houses have airconditioning, which cancool the whole house quickly. With the development of cell phone, people canreach each other in a second. They can talk or see each other through cellphone.
As time passes, my hometown has change alot thanks to the social development. I believe there will be much more changesin the future.
