My home town is a beautiful place. It stands beside a wide river and is rich in fish and rice.
But in the old days it was a poor and backward little town. Many people had no work. They lived a hard life.
In 1949 my hometown was liberated. Since then great changes have taken place there. The streets have been widened. Factories, schools, hospitals, cinemas and theatres have sprung up one after another. The life of the people is greatly improved.
I love my hometown. All the more I love its people. They are working hard so as to make it still richer and more beautiful.
My hometown is in the southeast of Shandong,a seaside village.
It is a small village. There are about 600 people. Most of them are peasants. They mainly plant wheat， corn and cotton. Some of them often go fishing in the sea.
Great changes have taken place in the past ten years. Now the peasants here use tractors in their work. A lot of new buildings have appeared. Many families own fridges and some even have air-conditioners. In the evening they watch TV as the people in cities do.
There is a primary school in the village. Most of the peasants’ children are studying in college now.
I love my home town. I believe she will become more and more beautiful in the future.
