Martin: Ten days?

Travel agent: That’s right.

Martin: But the holiday is for three weeks.

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?

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

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.
