(Mr. Gordon has invited Madam Li and the rest of the delegation out to dinner on their first night in London. They have gone to a French restaurant, which overlooks the Thames. There they meet Mr. Gordon’s wife and some of his colleagues. The following is their conversation during dinner.)

G: Do please sit down, everybody.

李: 谢谢。这儿的景致真美啊!那座灯火通明的桥是什么桥?

G: That's Albert Bridge-----named after Queen Victoria's husband,Prince Albert. Barges used to come up the river in the old days, bringing supplies in to London. Some still do, of course, but the river is mainly used for pleasure now.

Mrs G: You can take a boat all the way from Greenwich to Hampton Court in the far west, and it takes you under Tower Bridge through the city and on past the Houses of Parliament.

李: 一定很引人入胜。我们在这儿逗留期间,也许会有时间浏览一番的。

G: Here is your menu card, Madam Li. My wife has chosen the menu. We always come here on special occasions so we have tried most of the dishes and I can highly recommend Julia's choice.

Mrs G: Thank you, darling. I thought we'd start with smoked salmon, followed by Duck al’ Orange, which is duck cooked in orange sauce-----a traditional French recipe for duck.

李: 味道一定不错。夫人点菜想的真周到, 我想你们一定知道,我们中国人爱吃鱼,我们又都来自北京,北京最有名的一个菜是烤鸭,我很想尝尝用完全不同的方法烹调的鸭子。

Mrs G: Well, I hope you'll enjoy it. It's always fun to try new things. Ah, here's the salmon. Do have some brown bread with it, and I recommend that you squeeze some lemon over the fish. It brings out the flavor.

G: Are you all happy drinking white wine? It's quite dry. I thought we'd stick to white as we're having fish and poultry unless you'd prefer red,or something else altogether?

李: 不用了,我觉得白葡萄酒很好,谢谢。

G: Do start everybody. Don’t stand on ceremony. Please feel at home.

李: 戈登夫人, 你喜欢烹调吗?

Mrs G: Yes, as a matter of fact, I do, although I often have to fight to get into the kitchen because Chris is quite expert. Now that the children are all away at university and school and there're only the two of us, we tend to cook less. But, I must say, that after a hard day at the office, I love to get into the kitchen for a change. I'm lucky; I have an appreciative family.

G: Yes, it's not only me that is appreciative. The other day Julia had taken a chicken out of the oven to cool. She left it on the table while she went to the station to fetch me. When we got back, we found the cat and the dog fast asleep under the kitchen table with a pile of chicken bones between them.

李: 啊呀! 真的? 他们可真是美餐了一顿。说起猫,伦敦是不是在上演一个跟猫有关的名剧。

Mrs G: Yes,it’s called Cats. Quite simply, and is a musical. It's based on a book of poems by one of our most famous poets, T.S. Eliot. It has been running for several years and it is extremely popular. You have to book about 6 months or even a year in advance.

李: 天哪!

G: Do you like going to the theatre, Madam Li? Do you like opera or ballet? We wondered if you and your colleagues would be interested in going to Covent Garden one evening while you are in London?

李: 好啊, 我们很愿意。科文特加登剧院是很有名的。在中国,大家看过《茶花女》,都知道这个地方。

Mrs G: Oh, have you seen My Fair Lady in China? I love that film. It's one of my favorites. But while you are here, there are both ballet and opera on at Convent Garden. The ballet is Swan Lake. Which opera are they performing, Chris?

G: I think it's Madame Butterfly-----Puccini. Which do you prefer, ballet or opera, Madam Li?

李: 两个都喜欢, 不过, 我一直想看《天鹅湖》。

Mrs G: Then that's settled. We'll try and get tickets---or may be a box for that. Certainly, if you are going to a ballet as traditional as Swan Lake Covent Garden is the place to see it.
