    as if followed by subjunctive

    1. In spite of the fact that you are in the middle of the city, you feel as if you are/were in the countryside.

    There is a point in my grammar book, Digest, which says in 'as if/as though clauses' we use 'were' when they happen at the same time.
    I doubted it in the above sentence. (In the original sentence it was 'are'. Is it possible?)
