The local park
This children's park looks small, but it's spacious and very functional. It has a slide, swings, a roundabout and a small climbing frame. The area we live in is a fully residential zone, something in between a village and an outer-city suburb. It's across the road from my house (the cream-coloured flat-roof building obscured by the date tree and red bougainvillea), so I can watch the children playing from my kitchen window while I'm cooking. The area looks quite peaceful, but cars still race up and down the road, which is a real nuisance in the summer when we usually keep our shutters closed and our windows open.
