Tim: Alice, would you like to see the pictures of my holiday in Italy?
Alice: Sure, what was it like?
Tim: Ah, the holiday was great! The food was great! But the traffic was horrible!
Alice: Really? Why was the traffic horrible?
Tim: Actually, the general skill level of drivers in Italy is rather bad. Driving too fast for conditions, overtaking in stupid places and driving while talking on a mobile phone are all very common there.
Alice: Oh, Tim! Did you have any accidents?
Tim: Luckily, we didn’t. But the death rate on the roads in Italy is not funny at all. Anyway, I don’t want to think about it!
Alice: OK, OK, let’s return to your positive impressions. Oh, what a beautiful picture!
Tim: Yes, this is a picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It was a great feeling to stand right in front of such a fantastic building. But, honestly, the tower didn’t seem to be that leaning.
Alice: Incredible! I’ve always wanted to climb it. Did you do that?
Tim: Yes, we climbed to the top! It was raining that day but it was still wonderful.
Alice: Was it scary?
Tim: No, I wasn’t frightened at all. It’s not very tall, actually.
Alice: And what’s this?
Tim: That’s a photo of the River Arno in Florence. That’s the ‘Ponte Vecchio’, which means the ‘Old Bridge’.
Alice: Yeah, I know. It’s like the Tower Bridge in London.
Tim: Not exactly. Yes, it’s the symbol of the city but unlike the Tower Bridge, it has small houses on both sides of the bridge.
Alice: It’s really charming. And what was Florence like? Did you like the city?
Tim: It was marvellous. There were beautiful old medieval buildings in the city, impressive cathedrals and churches and lots of wonderful museums.
Alice: How was your Italian?
Tim: My Italian wasn’t very good. But many Italians speak English very well. I was really impressed!
Alice: Oh, this picture looks wonderful.
Tim: Yes, that’s a shot of a tasty pizza served by a beautiful Italian girl! You know, Italians are famous for their food and wine. So we didn’t miss a
chance to try traditional dishes.
Alice: I’m so jealous… I hope to visit this country some day.
Tim: That’s a really great country. I’d recommend Italy anytime!
