[by:www.TingVOA.com - VOA英语网]


[00:00.10]lesson 45 Visiting Britain

[00:1.00]Xiaojin is studying in London for six months,

[00:2.00]She is writing to her aunt who is coming to visit her soon.

[00:3.00]Dear Aunt Mei,

[00:4.00]I'm so happy you are coming to visit me in London

[00:5.00]and I think you will have a nice time when you go travelling

[00:6.00]to other parts of the country.

[00:7.00]I have been here for six months now

[00:8.00]and I think I am still experencing "culture shock."

[00:9.00]There are many things here that are different from back home

[00:10.00]and I didn't expect to see.

[00:11.00]I'll tell you about some of those things which might be useful for you

[00:12.00]to know before you come.

[00:13.00]When I first came here

[00:14.00]I was surprised to find that London is such an international city.

[00:15.00]It seems that there are people from all over the world living here.

[00:16.00]There are many international restaurants

[00:17.00]and people told me that almost every town in Britain

[00:18.00]has at least one Chinese restaurant.This is really unbelievable.

[00:19.00]I don't expect to have so many choices here.

[00:20.00]Something that always confuses me is tipping.

[00:21.00]One book I read said that you need to tip at restaurants

[00:22.00]but later I realised that if "service included "is on the rstaurant bill.

[00:23.00]you don't need to tip and if it says:service not included a 10% tip is expected.

[00:24.00]SO if you want to avoid getting confused,you should always check your bill.

[00:25.00]Why don't they do it the same way everywhere?

[00:26.00]Hotels in Britain are expensive and I can't afford to stay at any.

[00:27.00]But when you come here you should consider staying at a "Bed and Breakfast".

[00:28.00]Many of them are private houses which offer accommodation and some food.

[00:29.00]I know you enjoy talking to people so I think you will like them

[00:30.00]because the owners are often very friendly.

[00:31.00]Some things here are inconvenient.

[00:32.00]Many of the shops close early and some shop keepers refuse to change &50 notes.

[00:33.00]the largest notes.Also,you shouldn't risk carrying lots of cash around with you,

[00:34.00]so I suggest bringing travellers cheques.

[00:35.00]Another thing is that the British plugs for electric appliances

[00:36.00]are different to Chinese plugs,

[00:37.00]so I advise you to make sure you have the right plug adapter for your hairdryer.

[00:38.00]There are two other things you might be suprised by when you come here.

[00:39.00]There aren't many red phone boxes and London isn't foggy all the time either.

[00:40.00]Anyway Aunt Mei,I can't to see you here,Love.Xiaojin.
