英語で見る: Peaceful La Paz

From BBC Learning English
Please click here to watch the video.

Its name may mean ‘peace’, but the Bolivian city La Paz is not normally noted for its calm. That is, apart from on the annual day of the pedestrian. Vehicles are banned for 24 hours and the usually traffic-choked streets are taken over by cyclists, street performers and people playing sport. The idea is to raise the environmental awareness of Bolivians.

Homework
After watching the video, think of the questions below and write an answer to ONE of them (5-10 sentences):
1. Do you know any “calm” place in your town? If you want to relax, where would you go? What is so “calm” in this place?
2. If you can ban something from your town for one day in a year, what would you like to ban?
3. Make your own sentences with the words written in bold.
