V. Time to Read

1. Read about Mike’s first impressions of Britain and say what sounds interesting to you.


Dear Diary:

So I’m in Britain! It is so exciting! No more passport control or baggage reclaim. Steve and his father met me at the airport and we took an express train to Victoria Station. As I arrived on Sunday afternoon, Steve’s family gave me a very warm welcome party. We were talking the whole afternoon. His parents and his elder sister Joanne are such nice and hospitable people. We had a truly English Sunday dinner, or the Sunday roast, as they call it. They served roasted meat, mashed potato, with Yorkshire pudding and vegetables. It was absolutely delicious!

After dinner Steve and Joanne took me for an evening walk about the city centre. Trafalgar Square made a great impression on me. At last I saw Admiral Nelson’s statue with my own eyes and climbed the bronze lions. How ridiculous it was to see that all shops and supermarkets were closed when we were strolling along Oxford Street. Joanne says it is a custom here: everyone seems to enjoy their lives.

On Monday morning I saw a red double-decker for the first time. I didn’t know all taxis were black in London. In the afternoon Steve and I are going to see Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and Hyde Park. I hope we’ll have a lot of fun.
