Hi, excuse me, I'm sorry to bug you, but do you know where The Royal Hotelis?
Just a minute. I'm as busy as a bee right now. Ok, I'm done. What can I dofor you?
Well, I seem to be a little bit lost here. I'm worried that I'll never findmy way. What's worse, I forgot my glasses and I'm as blind as a bat now.
Well, keep your chin up. I'll try to help you. Where are you going?
I'm try to get to The Royal Hotel. Do you know where that is?
Yes, uh, no problem. You walk down this street. You turn left at the firstintersection. Walk along that road. Turn right at the corner. After that youmake a left-hand turn at the first traffic light. The Royal Hotel is on theright side.
Great! Are there any landmarks near by?
Yeah, I think so. I think the hotel is right across the street from thepost office. It's as plain as the hump on a camel. You can't miss it.
Oh, that's good. I should be able to find it pretty easily then. Is it farfrom here?
Yeah, it's gonna take you a while if you go by foot. I'd say it's about a30 minutes uphill walk. You have to be as strong as a lion to make it.
Oh, that would take too long and I'm kind of in a hurry. Can I take a busthere?
Well, you could take a bus there, but you would have to transfer busestwice. A taxi would probably be a lot quicker.
Alright, I guess I'll take a taxi then. How long will it take by taxi?
Not too long. It should take about ten minutes by taxi.
