Rumei: Bina, come and join us.
Bina: Thanks. Hi, everyone.
Rumei: Bina, you haven't met our friend Dashan yet.
Bina: Hi, Dashan. I'm Bina Kapoor.
Rumei: And do you remember my husband Yunbo?
Bina: Of course. Hi, Yunbo.
Dashan: Bina, please sit down.
Rumei: Bina's been to China, you know.
Dashan: Really? What cities have you visited?
Bina: Let me see. I've been to a lot of places... Shanghai, Xi'an, and Beijing.
Yunbo: That's impressive. What did you think of Shanghai?
Bina: I liked Shanghai, but it was too crowded for me.
Dashan: Did you like Beijing?
Bina: Yes, I did. But I liked visiting Xi'an best. Those terra cotta figures were amazing.
Rumei: You know, I've never been to Xi'an. Yunbo, we should go there some day.
Everyone tells us to go and see the figures of the warriors and horses.
Dashan: I've seen them and I agree. You really ought to go.
Bina: So, tell me about your trip across Canada.
Yunbo: Well, we've had a wonderful time. We started out in Vancouver. We loved seeing British Columbia and meeting Dashan's sister Monica.
Bina: Did you visit the Prairie provinces?
Dashan: Yes, we had a great time there.
Yunbo: But it was very cold. I'll never forget the snow.
Rumei: In Ontario, Dashan's friend invited us on a tour of his company. It was our
first visit to a Canadian company.
Yunbo: I enjoyed learning about their new technology.
Rumei: And don't forget to tell Bina about our dinner.
Yunbo: Oh, yes. Dashan's friends invited us to their home for dinner. It was great to see inside a Canadian home.
Bina: Did Dashan show you around Quebéc?
Rumei: Yes, Dashan speaks French very well. He took us to Quebéc city and Montreal.
Yunbo: We also went to Prince Edward Island. I liked spending time in the countryside.
Bina: You've had quite a trip, haven't you?
Rumei: Yes, we have. And we've spoken English all the time, haven't we?
Dashan: Yes, we have. Okay, we'd better decide on lunch.
Bina: Yes, I should look at the menu. Mmm... I'm going to have the vegetable soup.
Yunbo: Oh, look outside. Look at that lake. It looks like an ocean.
云波：啊，往外看呐。 看那大湖。 看起来就像是海洋。
Bina: Oh, that's Lake Superior. It's the largest of the five Great Lakes.
Dashan: Travelling by train is great. You can see so much.
Bina: I agree. And it always relaxes me.
Server: May I take your order?
Rumei: Bina, when are you going to take the ferry to Victoria?
Bina: I'm on the six o'clock sailing tonight. And you? When are you going to catch your flight for Beijing?
Rumei: Tomorrow morning at seven o'clock. Well, it's been a wonderful trip. I've really enjoyed talking with you, Bina. Let's keep in touch.
Bina: I hope you will. I'll write to you.
Rumei: I'd like that.
Dashan: Well, it was nice to talk to you, Bina. Take care.
