The last day together
It is the last day and Jenny has met Craig in the city centre. They have decided to talk about their visits to the city and to the countryside. They go to a restaurant, order some soft drinks and take out their notebooks. They begin writing down the pros and cons of both places.
Jenny: I had so much fun! It has been fun visiting your home and my home. It is great that we live in such different living environments!
Craig: I know! I enjoyed my visit to your home farm and loved your summer cottage. I loved swimming and the sauna. Now, let’s write down the pros and cons of both places.
Jenny: Wait a minute. Did you like the article I sent you? Can we write some useful tips for helping the environment as well?
Craig: Certainly! The article was difficult to understand but really good! I think being environment-friendly is very important at home and when travelling. So yes, let’s write some tips down too.
