ALLYSON: Joe! What a surprise! When did you back?

JOE: Last night. The plane landed at 11.30 and I got to bed at half past two this morning!

ALLYSON: Are you tired?

JOE: Yes, I am. The flight from Los Angeles took thirteen hours. Then we had to wait at the airport for our luggage. 

ALLYSON: Well, what do you think of America?

JOE: It’s fantastic! Everything is so big: the skyscrapers, the cars, the shops. Have you ever been to America?

ALLYSON: Yes, I have, I went to Boston two years ago. My uncle Jack, lives there. Did you go to New York?

JOE: Yes, we did. In fact, that’s where our journey started. We travelled by train from New York on the East Coast to Los Angeles on the West Coast.

ALLYSON: By train? How fantastic!

JOE: Yes, It’s a great way to see America. And what about you? did you enjoy your holidays?

ALLYSON: Yes, I did! We went on a tour to Ireland. 

JOE: Great! I’ve never been to Ireland, but I know that it’s a little boring because the weather is terrible.

ALLYSON: Well, if you don’t like sheep and rain, it’s not the better place for a holiday!
