Hi. My name is Ralph Mesquite. I am a biologist. I live at Ling Lodge in Brooklyn City. Ling Lodge is on Old River Road. It is a part of Mosquito City. The houses in Brooklyn do not have street numbers. They have names. The name of my building is Ling Lodge and the name of the building next to my building is Antarctica.
Ling Lodge is across the road from the Nature Reserve. I often go to the Nature Reserve. I am studying the plants there. In particular I am studying the Mosquito Rose. The Mosquito Rose is a giant red flower. It is an endangered species.
Sometimes I work at the Nature Reserve and sometimes I work at home and sometimes I drive in to my office at the university. Mosquito City has one university. I am a professor at the Mosquito City University. I am a biology professor.
I was born in Mosquito City and I have lived here most of my life. I am going to tell you a little about the city. Mosquito City is an independent country in the southern Pacific Ocean. The government of Mosquito City is an urban corporation and the city has a population of about three hundred and fifty thousand people.
Actually the urban corporation of Mosquito City consists of three separate entities. They are Mosquito City, Mount Sphinx and Brooklyn. As I said before, I live in Brooklyn but the university is in Mosquito City, near the river.
I like Brooklyn. It is an old whaling town. It has lots of colorful old buildings and a whaling museum and it has a modern port. There is also an airport in Brooklyn and there are lots of hotels and places to eat and drink. Brooklyn is more interesting than Mosquito City central.
Mount Sphinx is a nice place too. It is a quiet little village in the shadow of Mount Sphinx. People go there to hang out at the cafes and to climb Mount Sphinx. Tourists like to walk around the town and look at the old buildings. Mount Sphinx is a heritage village. All the buildings have mustard-colored walls and red roofs. It is illegal to destroy one of these traditional buildings and it is illegal to build a new building in another style. I like the style though. Mount Sphinx is a really nice place.
From Mount Sphinx you can take the bypass above and around the village. The bypass takes traffic directly to Brooklyn Port. the Government of Mosquito City built the bypass to carry trucks and other vehiclesright into the port and eliminate traffic problems in the inner city area of Mosquito City central.
The government of Mosquito City is located in the City Office. The current president is Zippie Van Hodoun. He used to be a male nurse but he became a politician four years ago. He wanted to save the Nature Reserve in Brooklyn. Some businessmen wanted to extend the airport and destroy the reserve but Zippie stopped them. He is a really good president. He really cares about the community. He cares about the environment too. He saved the Mosquito Rose. He is a very popular president.
