Transcript

Stephen: There she is! 

Ashlie: Hi!

Stephen: Great to see you Ash – this is Jazz.

Ashlie: Hi, nice to meet you, Jazz. 

Jazz: Nice to meet you Ashlie. I have never been here before. I have always wanted to visit London.    

Ashlie: Wow, this is your first visit to London – you’ve never been here before? Well, I’m glad you could come – we’re really looking forward to showing you around.

Stephen: Come on. Let’s get going.

Ashlie: Here, let me help you with this bag. What have you got in here? It weighs a ton.

Stephen: Oh - come on. We need to get a move on.

Ashlie: Stephen’s brought his friend Jazz over to London for a few days. So we’re going to give him a tour of the city and show him the sights.

Stephen: Come on Ash - we need to get to central London for your surprise.

Ashlie: Surprise? What for me? I’ve got a surprise!

.....

Stephen: Hi there. 

Cab Driver: Hi.

Stephen: We need to get to the River Thames. Can you take us to Embankment – near the tube station?

Cab Driver: Embankment Station, OK.

Ashlie: Oh no! My bag! Where’s my bag? I can’t believe it… I’ve lost it. Damn it! I’m going to have to go back there and get it.

Stephen: Did you have it with you on the train? Are you sure you had it with you on the train? 

Jazz: You had your bag on the train, definitely – you put it on the... err... How do you say that in English?  

Stephen: The luggage rack – yeah. Did you put it on the luggage rack, Ash?  

Ashlie: You’re right - I’m sure I had it with me on the train. Oh my gosh! My phone! My phone is in my bag. Oh, I’m going to have to go back. 

Stephen: But Ashlie, you’ll miss the surprise.

Ashlie: Oh, how annoying! You guys go on ahead and I’ll catch you up later.

Stephen: Are you sure?

Ashlie: Yes, don’t worry. I’ll give you a call later.

.....

Jazz: Oh gosh! This is an amazing city. What is that building over there?

Stephen: Oh, that’s the Royal Albert Hall... I hope we’re going to get there on time.

Jazz: The traffic in London is terrible. Is the traffic always this bad?

Stephen: Ah - you should see it in rush hour. Sometimes it’s quicker to walk. In fact, maybe we should… are you OK with walking?

Jazz: Is it a long way?

Stephen: It’s about ten minutes' walk to the flat from here.

Jazz: OK, that’s fine. I think we can manage with these bags.

Stephen: Can you pull over here, please?

......

Stephen: It’s only half an hour to the surprise – we’ll have to hurry.

Jazz: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait, I want to take a photo. Wow, I have never seen anything like this before. Where are we? What is this place called?

Stephen: This is Piccadilly Circus. There’s always loads of tourists round here. 

Jazz: Wow, I must take a photograph, just one minute.

Stephen: When we get to Trafalgar Square, we can stop for a quick rest. Come on. Jazz…

Stephen: What’s that? It’s a phone. Is that your phone?

Jazz: No.

Jazz: Hey, I don’t believe it. Look what I’ve found! Isn’t this Ashlie’s bag? It’s her phone!

Stephen: What? Oh no! We had it all along. Poor Ashlie. I’m going to answer it. Hello?

Ashlie: Stephen? 

Stephen: Hello. This isn’t Ashlie – I’m Stephen, I’m Ashlie’s brother.

Ashlie: Stephen!

Stephen: But this is Ashlie’s phone. 

Ashlie: What are you doing with my phone? 

Stephen: Who’s that?

Ashlie: Stephen it’s me – Ashlie – Where are you?

Stephen: Ash, we’ve found your stuff. We had it with us all the time.

Ashlie: Oh - I can’t believe I came all the way back here for nothing. 

Stephen: Yes, don’t worry, we’ve got your bag. Everything‘s safe.

Ashlie: Thank goodness it’s all turned up. I’m so relieved. 

Stephen: Right, well get here as quick as you can. We’re going to drop the bags off at the flat. 

Ashlie: Great. And thank you!

Stephen: Meet you at the Embankment. Don’t be late. Remember, I’ve got a surprise for you!

Ashlie: OK, I’ll see you later. Bye!

Calendars

French

Pour les premiers hommes, il était évident que le temps se déplaçait de manière cyclique. Le premier problème pour ceux qui ont établi le calendrier était de faire en sorte que les mois (qui dépendent de la lune) et les années se synchronisent.

Are you looking forward to summer? In St Petersburg, where this article was written, a day can be less than six hours long in the middle of winter and nearly 19 hours in summer.

كان من الواضح أن الوقت يدور في حلقات مفرغة بالنسبة للشعوب الأولى. وتكمن المشكلة الأساسية لواضعي التقويم في كيفية إبقاء الأشهر (القمرية) متزامنة مع السنوات.
