Sarah describes her town

Read the following description about Sarah's home town, Cartagena. Pay attention to the use of linking words (in bold).

"Hello guys! This is my home town, Cartagena. It is near the coast, in the south of Spain. In Cartagena, there are a lot of things to do. For example, do you like archaeology? Then, you can visit its beautiful Roman theatre and its museum. Do you like shopping? There are lots of shops in the city centre and also in the surrounding areas. Do you like tapas? There are some tapas bars near the port and a lot of good restaurants in other areas of the city, too.
However, there is a problem. There is a lot of traffic, so some people say that Cartagena is a noisy and polluted town. What do you think?
What about you? Do you live in a town or in a village? Are there a lot of activities to do there?"

Now read and listen to this tale and answer the question at the end of the story.
Around my neighbourhood  /'neɪbəhʊd/ (barrio, vecindario).
