Tell me about where you lived, in the city.

'Cause my, how to say, you know my experience is very break down for quite a few steps. As far as I can remember, my childhood from the age of six or seven. 'Cause, you know in China, we count child's age when they still in the womb. By the time of child is born, she is, he is one. After the Chinese New Year, she is two even she is only a few month old. So, I can't really remember, in the Chinese style, calculation of age about six or seven, in Western calculation might be 4 or 5, that age. I can't really remember where I lived before that, then I came to the city. I live with my grandma. It was ... not a bungalow, it was kind of a shed.
