Goodbye.

Martin: A stampede of camels? What’s that?

Travel agent: Haven’t you ever seen a stampede of camels?

fires a gun in the air – Bang! and all the camels get frightened and run away.

Martin: No, we haven’t,

Travel agent: Well, we can give you three weeks in a small boat in the small hole in the bottom.

Brenda: A hole in the bottom?

Travel agent: and you have enough food for ten days.

Martin: Ten days?

Travel agent: That’s right.

Martin: But the holiday is for three weeks.

Travel agent: That’s what makes it exciting! And it’s only £600.

Brenda: £600! It’s still much too expensive for us.

Martin: Have you got anything a little bit cheaper?

Travel agent: Cheaper…well, I don’t know. Let me see…Um…Oh, yes. Now this is a holiday to

remember. The Amazon jungle. Have you been to the Amazon jungle?

Martin: No, we haven’t.

Travel agent: Well, this may be the holiday

for you. We drop you into the middle of the Amazon jungle by parachute.

Martin: By parachute!

Travel agent: Yes, we drop you into the middle of the Amazon jungle, with a map.

Brenda: Well, at least you get a map.

Travel agent: with a map of the London Underground.

Brenda: Oh. I don’t think we’d like that. It sounds very dangerous.

Travel agent: Yes, but it’s very exciting! This is the twentieth century. People want exciting holidays. You said you wanted an exciting holiday.

Martin: But all your holidays are dangerous, expensive, and too far away from home.

Travel agent: Oh, I see. Now you want something nearer home.

Martin: Er…yes.

Travel agent: Have you ever been to Spain?

Martin: No, we haven’t.
