Life noe and then
By Betty King
Mrs Li is over seventy years old. She has lived in Beijing all her life. I asked her about life today and in the past.
What was your life like in the past?
My family lived in a tiny house.There were no electric lights,only candles My father was a postman,and he often worked twelve hours a day outside in the winter cold or in the summer heat. My mum was a farm girl before she met my father. She was a kind and loving mother. She didn\'t go out to work.There were five children in my family, and lookinci af九江癫痫病医院都有哪些ter us was more than a full-tima job.
I remember the family meals. The food was simple. We could only eat meat once or twice a year. I wasn\'t sent to school because my family couldn\'t afford it ,and what\'s more,because I was a girl.
How has life changed?
Families have got smaller than they were inthe past. Today most people only have one child! The role of women has changedtoo.My daughter is really lucky. She has a good education,and she goes towork even after getting married. l\'m happy to see she\'s busy working every day, but sometimes I feel lonely because she can\'t come to see me often.
Transport, and travel are easier today. When I was young,l went everywhere on foot or sometimes by bi枣庄癫痫权威专科医院ke. Now you can take the bus everywhere,and there\'s also the underground. And you young people can take a plane to anywhere in the world. The only thing I don\'t like though, is that there\'s so much more traffic.It\'s so difficult to cross the road.
Of course,we didn\'t have television when I was a child. I really enjoy watching television today. There\'re so many good programmes,like the Beijing Opera and old films. But some of the shows are too noisy for me.
Generally speaking,l think life is better to day. We eat better and we live longer.总的来说，我认为现在的生活更好。我们吃得更好，也更长寿了。
