KFC to Gaza - level 2
KFC meals are apparently quite popular because people even smuggle them.
Some people in Gaza miss the KFC chicken very, very much. They pay 35 US dollars to smugglers who get it for them. The smugglers use tunnels between Gaza and Egypt to transport it from Egypt where the meals are cooked. The food cannot be called fast food anymore because it arrives after five hours and it is cold.
The tunnels have become very important for Gaza. There are not many trucks which are allowed to bring goods into Gaza so the tunnels are very useful.
Interesting words: apparently (clearly), smuggle (transport illegally).
