Extracts from this document...


´╗┐The Age March 27, 2010 YOUR DAILY FAVOURITE NEWSPAPER GOODWEEKEND Rural Vs. Urban Lifestyle To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. - Milan Kundera. Lorem Ipsum In libris graecis appetere mea. At vim odio lorem omnes, pri id iuvaret partiendo. Vivendo menandri et sed. Lorem volumus blandit cu has.Sit cu alia porro fuisset.
