Islands and Bridges
Kathy notes that Stockholm and Amsterdam are both cities on water.
K:I didn't realize that both Stockholm and Amsterdam are cities built on the water.
E:Don't forget Venice, Italy. It's even more famous.
K:Would you like to live here in Stockholm?
E:I don't know. I really like the hustle and bustle of New York. I wouldn't mind working here for a year, though.
K:Yeah. It would be nice to take a break from all that stress and pollution of the big city.
E:Look! Here's another bridge.
K:Do we have to pay a toll?
E:No. These bridges are toll-free.
K:That must be the city center there.
E:Uh-huh. We'll be there in a jiffy. There's not that much traffic here. Check out the map. We're looking for the Vasa district.
E:It's the university area. Our hostel is near there.
K:Great! There should be lots of neat shops and restaurants there.
