M:Great.I’m looking forward to meeting them.
M:What’s the best way to downtown?
W:If you’re in a hurry,you should take a taxi.But it’s very expensive.
M:I’m in no particular hurry.
W:Well,take an airport bus then,it will cost you only about 5.
M:That’s a good idea.
W:Please turn on the airconditioner.The temperature is 39℃ today.
M:All right.But I think it might be cooler outside at this time of the day.Many people are doing their morning exercises outdoors now.
W:What do you mean?
M:I suggest you do the same.
M:Did you have a nice holiday?
M:Where did you go?
W:I went to Fiji.
