Train — After Neil Young (it's a mighty tight squeeze*)

From The Telegraph:

••••••••••••••••••••

Living close to a train station is usually considered a bonus by commuters, but for some residents of Hanoi, the public transport is a little too close for comfort.

Every day, at 4pm and 7pm, a train makes its way down a street so narrow that it is just inches from the houses on either side.

It passes so close to their front doors that any objects which are kept on the street, such as bicycles, have to be moved to make sure that they do not get hit.

Accidents have been known to happen in the past, so the street's residents prefer to stay inside, with their doors closed, to ensure that they are not in the path of danger.

*Wait a sec... what's that music I'm hearing?

From Wired: "Unlike its wooden siblings, this cello won't crack or go out of tune during sudden decreases in humidity. Yo-Yo Ma relies on a Luis and Clark cello for some of his chillier outdoor gigs."
