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.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
