London: transportation/Лондон: транспорт

Let's begin with trains. The train stations are spacious. This is Victoria Station.

Начнем с поездов. Вокзалы просторные. Это вокзал Виктория.


And this is Paddington.

А это -- вокзал Паддингтон.





This is the entrance to the Paddington station. It's hard to tell...

Это -- вход в вокзал Паддингтон. Прямо сразу и не скажешь.


Parking in the city is very limited. Cars are parked everywhere, but only in the allowed places. Here, for example, only one car can go through at one time.

В городе ситуация с парковками сложная. Машины стоят везде где можно, но только в определенных местах. Здесь уже две машины не разъедутся.

The roads between cities are spacious and nice.

Дороги между городами широкие и ровные.


Road markings are quite understandable.

Знаки -- понятные.

A natural tunnel.

Природный тоннель.


Driving in the city of London can be interesting.

Рулить по Лондону местами бывает интересно.


Bus drivers have most of the driving fun.

Водителям автобусов вообще интересно.


Cabs are everywhere. Even inside the airport.

Такси (кэбы) везде. Даже внутри аэропорта.
