Translation：So don't think of my home as a fairyland, it's just a normal village. At most, the mountains here are higher, trees are more, and there are fewer people. of course, don't think of the countryside too relaxed and satisfied as well, because video is the only video after all, outside the video I still need to dig the ground, pull the grass and dig the pit, and the mosquitoes in the summer can also bite you to doubt the life, do you believe it?
Translation：It’s not the world paradise that everyone praises. I am not a fairy in paradise, either. Not to mention I need to plant flowers and crops, but I am also an ordinary person who needs to eat, drink and poop.
