In response to Arnaud Lannic's question about
what one finds in American cities, I guess in
some cities you do find crime and poverty. We
call this area the "inner city." Places like the
Bronx in New York are called inner cities.
They are full of crime and drugs, and many of
the people who live there are on welfare. It's
sort of like a bad city in the middle of a big
city. Not all cities are like that, but most big
cities do have bad areas where you shouldn't go
alone at night.
