Near my house, I can see a lot of street lights. At the night time, children are paying near the street light.

Near my home I can see a big parking. My road is very small, so two cars can't move at the same time. If you meet another car, you have to stop. There aren't pavements. My town is little and there is a square near the church. There are many traffic lights and in the biggest roads there are roundabout.

From my balcony, I can see roads and all kind of vehicle. I see corners where the street lights are located make the streets brighter when it's dark. I can see pavements and people walk after work as well.

Before, I was confused between crossroads and crossing. There are so many traffic lights and street lights in my city. In some roundabouts, they grow beautiful flowers. Pavements in my area are always filled with different stuff.

In my home at country side we don't have this much of infrastructures no pavement no asphalt, no street lights, no round abouts, no crossing.
this kind of facilities are only in towns and cities where you can see paved streets with signposts, infrastructures, crossroads and traffic, traffic lights and square at downtown.
