~ Reading Test ~

           I have been working in this village for about two months now, and I have never seen a single beggar* in the street. What place is this?! Normally, every community has its rich and needy people, but here is something different. The villagers live like in a large family. They know if anyone of them needs anything. The other day, I didn't go out for only one day because I was very busy, and the villagers started knocking at my door. They were all worried about me. My absence was worrying for them. They thought I was sick, so they brought me food and drinks. One of them has even visited me to offer me one egg; that’s all he had. And some of them have come just to keep me company. I admired these people for their sense of humanity. Finally, I understood why there shouldn't be beggars in the village, and I'm not thinking of leaving it soon.
