My town – 50 years ago and now

I live in a small town in the south of Spain. It is near the Mediterranean coast. Fifty years ago the town was very different.
My town was smaller. The buildings were old. There used to be a lots of small shops in Molvízar. Now there are fewer shops, but they are bigger and more modern. There didn’t use to be blocks of flats. Now there are big blocks of flats and big houses. There was a convent, which later became a Civil Guard Station. Now it is a museum. There used to be taverns where the old people used to go to play cards. Fifty years ago not all the people used to have a TV. Now all the people have a TV at home. Fifty years ago the town was filthy.

Transport is very different too. People used to ride on a mule to go to other towns. Also there were a few taxis and buses. People didn’t use to have a car. Now most people have one. There used to be tracks. Now there are motorways. Now people usually go cycling.

My grandparents lived in the town fifty years ago. They say that life was very different. In Molvízar there were shepherds and many people were forwards. People used to pick up gropes, almonds and olives. The doctor used to go to the houses of the patients. Now you have to go to the health centre. At night neighbours used to meet in a house and there they used to tell stories. Children used to play with spin and the girls used to play with rag dolls. What a different life!

In conclusion, life was very different. My grandfather thinks that life was better fifty years ago, because now children don’t go out to play and do sport, because they are always playing with their mobiles or they play video games. In my opinion life is better now, because technologies can help us.
