Exercise in Hanoi – level 2

Exercise in Hanoi – level 2

01-04-2016 15:00

Market vendors in Hanoi could not afford the gym and did not have time to exercise, but they wanted to be fit. They decided to exercise at work. They bought a speaker so everyone could join in, including the customers.

Vietnam’s capital is known for its unique exercise culture. Even in the early hours, you can see people exercising. Running and yoga are common, but there are more creative routines, too.

Difficult words: vendor (a person who sells something in the street), afford (have enough money to buy something), unique (special and rare).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
