My village-50 years ago and now by Alex (Writing Unit2)

               I live in a small village in the south of Granada, called Ítrabo. I really like myvillage because it has improved a lot in the last 50 years, and in my opinion  it's better now. My parents and my uncles have told me some things of the past of the village to do this writing exercise.

People used to use donkeys, mules,etc... to move and specially to transpot things, for that reason, most of the population got this type of animals. Now, most people have got a car or a motorcycle because they are both so fast. However, we can also move by plane, bus, train, taxi, ship....

There was  an enormous cinema on the outskirst of the village and my grandparents used to go there everyday. they also say that there was a cementery where there's the school now. What an strange thing!

               In conclusion, life was quieter  then, but in my opinion  it's better now because life is
