And explain how you feel about this place
1 Is it hard to find quiet places in cities?
2 Why is it quieter in the countryside?

A quiet place where I like to spend time sometimes is a specific corner of my community garden. It's an area in the far north corner of the community, almost hidden behind a number of trees and bushes, and with a small paved patio area with wooden benches around it, and a trellis with climbing plants. I really like this area, and I go there when I want to read in spring or summer, or when I want some peace and quiet and to get away from my family members or the children that are often playing in the gardens. It doesn't seem that many people go there because every time I go there, it's empty, there's nobody else there. I love being around nature, and it's hard to find quiet places in my city where there aren't any people, or traffic noise or hustle and bustle, so I have become quite attached to this quiet area in the gardens. I sometimes just go there and sit and think or play with my phone, chat to friends on Wechat, play games, things like this. At other times I take a physical book, like a novel, and sit and read. It's an ideal place to wind down and it's very secluded. I must say they tend to the gardens in my community really well, and that's the positive side of the area where I live - despite being very central and very convenient, it's actually an area with a lot of trees and the local community make a lot of effort to keep the gardens looking nice, plant new flowers at certain times of year and look after the borders and the pond in the middle. It's important for some people, like me, to get to find a particular place that feels like your own, where you can escape from everything, so I feel very lucky that I discovered this small area tucked away in the back end of the community gardens, an area which seems to be very unpopular with other people - I don't know why - but I hope it remains like this because it has turned into my personal little safe haven.
