For vocabulary and exercises: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/features/witn/ep-150311
Like most women in Afghanistan, Sara Bahayi does all the housework and brings up the children. She also looks after her mother.
But that's where the similarities end. Sara is single and the family's breadwinner. She works as a taxi driver in Mazar-e-Sharif – a job almost always done by men.
Sara breaks a cultural taboo behind the wheel but otherwise follows the tradition of taxi drivers around the world: she loves a good chat.
