We are definitely not in the countryside, Radha! In fact, I moved from the country to my city 16 years ago.
We live in a neighborhood with a medium density of population - a combination of townhomes, condos, and single family homes and within a few blocks of an elementary school. My townhome community has 50 units and a nearby condo neighborhood has more than 100. Plus, I imagine there are at least 200 single-family homes. Our street is a little more than a mile long and runs between 2 very busy thoroughfares in our city.
But, our area also has protected wetlands and forests. Our lake is small but natural. There are 4 man-made lakes, as well.
