1/Sentence practice

A rainy day in London

Peter takes the bus and he arrives at Victoria station. It is starting to rain a little bit.

Unfortunately, he does not have his umbrella but he does not mind the rain.

It is the month of April and usually, it rains quite a lot in London.

Peter does not have his raincoat and a hat. His shoes are waterproof. He decides to walk to Leicester Square.

As it is raining slightly, there are not too many people in the streets. Peter can walk quickly.

All the people are in the coffee shops that are all over London.

It takes twenty-five minutes to go from Victoria Station to Leicester Square on foot.

The quick way is to walk through St James’s Park. It is very pretty and the wet grass smells wonderful.

London is close to Peter’s House and the bus stop is not far from his house either.

The bus is quite cheap if you buy a monthly ticket or travel card.

What is happening here? They are making a film.
