how it's possible to lead a normal life in the city but as i'm with you it is about what a civilization a civilized person is not necessarily one who lives in a big city the last person is somebody who knows what they want to know and read what they like reading they get out for the smile and go to bed with a smile they do good and most likely live by the bible. yes it is that the very column or main line is our link to civilization board our boats was across the sea taking people to and from the station for us to be am is a way to civilization daughter was at the point of it is that the few people that remain here have taken root in this land that is the enthusiasm of the b.m. builders is long gone about a block or news of the river is just a railway station now did you see there was a grandiose railway station superbugs we thought they should be for a big sprawling city but why not villages with a population of one thousand on his stance but then people do live everywhere.
