A man swims 2km to work. He got tired of commuting and being stuck in traffic. Benjamin David, 40, pulls his laptop, phone and suit in a waterproof bag behind him. He said the river goes from his apartment to his office. He said swimming is better than using buses or breathing pollution while cycling.
David said swimming made him fitter and less stressed. When he was on his bike, he shouted at cars. When he walked, he shouted at cyclists. He said the river was just a few metres from all the traffic. He said swimming is "completely relaxing". River swimming can be dangerous. In some cities, you cannot swim in rivers.
