Around the World
Read the dialog below.
A - I'm talking with 90-year-old Phil Andrews who leaves tomorrow on a trip around the world. He's hoping to set a new world record. He'll be the oldest man to travel around the world.
How do you feel, Phil?
B - I feel great. I'm excited about the trip.
A - How are you going to travel?
B - International Airlines is sponsoring my trip. They're letting me fly free for this month because, thanks to reporters like you, they're getting publicity in return.
A - What countries are you visiting on the trip?
B - I'm stopping in Portugal where I hope to spend a day relaxing on the beach. In Egypt I'm going to spend a day seeing the Egyptian pyramids. I'm stopping in India where I hope to see the Taj Majal. In Thailand I'm going to spend some time in Bangkok. I'm also stopping in Hawaii to spend a day surfing.
A - What?!
B - Just kidding. I haven't been surfing since I was 70.
A - 70? Wow!
B - The final stop is in Mexico where I hope to listen to some of that wonderful Mariachi music before I fly home.
A - Wow! Won't you get tired?
B - My doctor says that I'm in better shape than him. I swim every morning.
A - Well, good luck. Send me a postcard from one of your destinations.
B - OK.
