Contrast - City vs. Country

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 18 April 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture.

We've been moving house the last few days - always a challenge. We've been loving the open spaces and country air of our new home. The dog digs the yard too. We traded cars and motorcycles zooming through the streets for horses and sheep grazing peacefully in nearby pastures.

Here's a Two Sense tribute before and after image of the movers packing up the city house and unloading at our new home.

Living in the country has some disadvantages but mostly it is much better and more peaceful than the city, my own experience ;-)) Enjoy your new home !!!

@Baldwin VW: thanks for the tip - I'm curious what disadvantages you are thinking... fortunately Belgium is a small country so even being "in the country" here is still not too far from the city :)

I like the magic carpet effect. Enjoy your new home.

So I'm not the only one who prefers cows, sheep, and grass, versus cars, motorcycles and asphalt!
Though I was born and raised in a large city, for some reason, there is cow blood running through my veins!
I hope to return in my future life as a cow in the Alps :)
Will the Aminus3 servers reside there too? In the last couple of days AM3 pages load very slow for me, but I hope it's a different reason. (or maybe one of the disadvantages Baldwin is talking about?)
Your new front yard view it's gorgeous! and you got a hill on the left side too, just for better compositions of your 365 sunsets (or sunrises)/year shots.....Heaven to dogie, too!
How exciting, I'm very happy for you....Congratulations!
I hope you will enjoy your new home, and l'm looking forward to more photos of your new area.

@Maria: thanks Maria - I think a cow in the Alps sounds pretty good (although preferably dairy cow over rack of ribs cow!) hope the server is running more smoothly for you now - I'll adjust the coat hanger wires out in the garage ;-)

Maria from California, United States

I guess that's the main draw back of being a cow....you can never know what you will be used for.... :))
You did magic with the coat hanger wires, all fast and back to normal now!
