For Those Who Like to Travel
One day a Paris newspaper gave an advertisement about a very cheap and pleasant way of traveling — for 25 centimes. Many people believed it and sent the money.
A few days later each of them got a letter. The letter read: «Sir, rest in bed and remember that the Earth turns. Paris stands at the 49th parallel. At the 49th parallel you travel more than 25,000 kilometres a day. You may look out of the window and watch the beautiful sky».

Listen to the text and answer the questions:
What is the best-known symbol of London? Big Ben? St Paul’s Cathedral? Or could it be the big red London double-decker bus? It certainly could. Big London red buses are recognized all over the world.
The big red motor bus has been London’s «king of the road» since 1911. Every day thousand of Londoners use the big red buses to move — often slowly — around town. People used to go by open-topped buses until 1930s. Today they are only the special tourist ones.
But the most famous London buses, called ’Routemasters’ and date from the 1950s and 1960s, are the real symbol of London, which have been sold, in miniature, to millions of visitors.
The Routemaster is a legend in itself. With its open platform at the back end, the Routemaster is still the most popular bus in London, because passengers can climb on and off when they want, even if the bus is moving.
