... little reference to the war. The people here are generally very friendly. We took a ride on the metro simply because the depth that the metro has been built to (60 metres) beggars belief.

... had lived in them, what he or she was afraid of and how and when they met their demise. Our favourite parts of the tour were when she took us to places that we never would have discovered by ourselves.
