只有50英镑吗?会很难啊,但幸好犹有个秘密武器。我请马克·傅瑞斯来帮我,他是伦敦《游乐》杂志的编辑。

OK, well we need to eat. We've got a busy day ahead of us. Every year, Time Out does a survey into the best places to eat on a budget. This is the place that came number one. It's Comptoir Libanais in Wigmore 5treet, and it's fantastic. So, look at this. What a election. It's perfect for a business lunch. It looks fantastic. If you were to bring someone here, they'd be pretty impressed, don't you think?

艾夏,我看你是兴奋过头了。这其实不是地铁,这是英国唯一的电影博物馆。你看这个,这是位于伦敦南岸区的电影博物馆。我们买了两人同行一人免费的票,所以我们两人只花了12英镑就进到这儿来了。
