I'm first of all grateful God has given me a shelter to live in. I am use to the area because it's great to live in an area where you have access to anything like hospitals, clinics, supermarkets, malls, etc. Yes, I would choose to live here over again although I would like to live in countries like UK, India, France, or Germany. Nevertheless, I think this area will become more populated because there will be a gas station made soon.
