Rumei: This outing was a good idea. I've really enjoyed spending some time in the country.
Dashan: Yes. It HAS been fun, hasn't it?
Rumei: Yeah. I really enjoyed going to the flea market. I've never seen so much stuff. And everything was so cheap.
Dashan: Yes, I think you got some good deals. Yunbo, you look a bit tired.
Yunbo: Yes. I'm feeling a little sleepy. We've had a lot of exercise and fresh air.
Dashan: Well, let's pack up and head back to the city. We've got quite a long drive ahead of us.
Rumei: Sounds good to me.
Dashan: Rumei, would you mind putting my jacket into the trunk? Wait a minute, it's a little cold. I'll keep it on.
Rumei: Sure, Dashan. Yunbo, why don't you take a nap in the back seat? I'll sit in the front with Dashan.
Yunbo: Thanks. It'll be good to stretch out.
Dashan: Okay. Rumei, you can be my navigator.
Rumei: Sure. What does a navigator do?
Dashan: A navigator checks the map and watches out for road signs.
Rumei: I think I can handle that.
Dashan: Oh, we might be a little low on gas. How about keeping an eye open for a service station?
Dashan: Have you sent any postcards home yet?
Rumei: Yes, I have. I've sent cards to my family and to my colleagues at the university. How about you?
Dashan: I haven't written any yet. I guess I've been too lazy.
Rumei: Or too busy. Look, Dashan. There's a service station straight ahead.
Attendant: What'll it be today, sir?
Dashan: Fill it up with regular, please.
Attendant: Coming right up. Would you open the tank for me?
Dashan: Oh, sure.
Attendant: Do you want me to check the oil for you?
Dashan: No, thanks. I'm sure I have enough oil. It's a rental car. And could you clean the window, too?
Attendant: No problem.
Dashan: Would you mind doing the back one, too?
Attendant: Sure thing. That'll be twenty-two dollars and fifty cents.
Dashan: Oh, I don't have enough cash. Do you accept credit cards?
Attendant: Sure. We love plastic.
Rumei: Dashan, wait. I might have enough cash. Yes, I do.
Dashan: Thanks. I'll pay you back at the hotel. Here you are.
Attendant: Thanks a lot.
Dashan: Excuse me. Have we passed Highway 2 yet?
Attendant: No, you haven't. The turn off is about ten kilometres ahead. It's Exit 55.
Dashan: Is the turn off on the right side or on the left side?
Attendant: It's on your right. You can't miss it.
Dashan: Thanks for your help.
