Train at your door – level 2

Train at your door – level 2

29-11-2016 15:00

A train station close to your home would be for most commuters a nice thing. In Hanoi though, things got a little bit too close.

In the Vietnam capital city there is a street where trains pass right in front of people's doors. Only centimetres separate the train and the houses. The train goes through the narrow street every day at 4 pm and at 7 pm. Residents usually hide because there have been accidents in the past.

Living there cannot be very nice, mainly because of the noise and also for the security reasons.

Difficult words: commuter (person who travels to work), separate (divide), though (but).
