de las características de cuatro ciudades del mundo. Completa luego el ejercicio
many countries around the world, more and more people live in cities
which share many characteristics, but are also different from country to
cities are modern but have traditional Indian and Spanish influences.
The most important buildings are around a central square, which also
serves as a place to meet with friends. There are outdoor marketplaces,
where people can find almost anything they need. On Sundays,
parks are a popular place for family outings. Many people move to Mexico
City from rural
areas. It has a lot of excitement, but also lots of traffic and air
cities also have a mix of traditional and modern characteristics. There
are tall office and apartment buildings as well as traditional wooden
houses. Many people prefer to live near the center of cities, but
because houses there are expensive, they often commute from suburbs.
Traffic, pollution, and crowds are typical problems. However, there is
little crime, and even very crowded cities have many parks and gardens.
Although 80% of Australians live near
cities, the cities are not as large as those in some other countries.
Most people live in houses in suburbs - not in apartments. The suburbs
usually have their own churches, schools, and shopping centers. They
also have good recreational facilities. In large cities, like Sydney, the
suburbs are often far from the center of town. Because many people
commute to work, traffic is slow and there are many traffic jams.
people live in a variety of homes, from modern buildings in cities to
bamboo farmhouses in the towns. Feng-shui -the study of the harmonies
and alignment of buildings to ensure harmonious living- is an important
consideration in their architecture. Hong Kong has an excellent
transportation system which includes the subway, a tram system, safe and
comfortable ferries, and even the rickshaw, a two-wheeled vehicle pulled
by one person.
