华尔街高级英语 Lesson 19

29.Would you like wine in a bottle, David?

30. No thanks, I’m not hungry. So, how much longer will you be staying in Washdon?

31. Just two more days, that’s all. Then we go to Copenhagen for one day, Manila for one day,

32.and Johannesburg for a day and a half. And then back to Tokyo.

33.It sounds exhausting! How many people are there on the tour?

34. Fifty-five.

35.None of whom speak English, I imagine?

36. Hardly any of them.

37.I'd go crazy. I suppose all the guys keep trying to flirt with you as well.

38.Oh no they're very respectable gentlemen!

39.They're all senior executive from the Japanese National Motor Vehicle Insurance Corporation.

40 Oh, Geez! Travelling around the world from airport to hotel with fifty-five middle-aged insurance executives!

41 Oh well, I suppose you're well covered, if one of them goes crazy and burns the hotel down,

42. or takes off his clothes in the middle of Kennedy Plaza.

43. Sorry David, I don't understand.

44. I mean you must be covered by insurance, if anything goes wrong. Just a joke, that's all.

45.Oh yes, I have to be insured against accident, both to me and to the clients. That's the law in Japan.

46.I see. Anyway, I'm sure you can't wait to escape from your clients and live dangerously from time to time.

47. Oh, David no, I enjoy my job very much. But I was going to ask you to join me this evening for a drink.

48 Hey, thanks. Where do you have in mind?

49I'm not sure. Can you think of any really typical Washdon bars we could go to?

50 Well yes, I know one or two bars. Let me think. I've got it: "Romeo's” in Jefferson Avenue.

51, That's got a nice intimate atmosphere.

52. What do you mean intimate?

53. I mean you know, ideal for a quiet drink. Getting to know each other-that sort of thing.

54. I see. So how do you get to this bar?

55. Well, as I said, it's in Jefferson Avenue, near Brookless Bridge.

56. Just tell your driver to take a right before the bridge, and park anywhere along Jefferson Avenue.

57.You're very knowledgeable.

58.It's all part of the service, as you said earlier.

59.Well, I must go now, David. We're invited to tea with some representatives of the Britican Insurance Association.

60.You could come to if you like. It should be very interesting.

61.Hey, it's real nice of you, but, uh...I've got something else on, as it happens.

62. OK. Well see you this evening, then. About 8:30 at "Romeo’s”.

63. See you later, Aiko.
