英会話ブログ その507     Karachi (3)

2014/11/02

Nick had said, "Karachi is the armpit of the earth.  Poverty, filth, flies, beggars and disease.  

It's hot as hell, mate, a viper's nest of thieves and terrorists.  The air is polluted, the water is undrinkable.  

The city is a crowded mess.  The maze of streets are a massive traffic jam of banged-up cars, bicycles, trucks, vans and donkey carts.

Most of the hotels are complete crap, but there is a semi-civilized place to stay, not too far from the airport.  Pilots ad stews (stewardesses) crash (stay) there.  Even got a bar and a swimming pool.  It's called, MIdway House."  

Nick often exaggerated.  I'd have to see for myself.                    (V.C)
