My hometown is a village called Maoba Village. It lies in the west of Hubei. It has a population of 5,000. It is a beautiful village. It has a few high mountains and a small river. There are many trees in it. The best time to go there is in autumn.
In the past, my hometown was poor. People there lived a hard life. Great changes have taken place these years. Now the living conditions have been improved. Wide roads and many new houses have appeared. Some people have their own cars. Now every child in my hometown can go to school. I believe my hometown will become better and better.
