Train at your door - level 2
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.
Interesting words: commuter (person who travels to work), though (but), separate (divide).
