Mark: Okay. So. I have just finished my lunch. I have had a delicious piece of quiche lorraine and salad and a nice glass of red wine and I don’t feel like coffee. I am going to go outside and go for a walk and have a look at Mosquito City. And yeah. (to the waiter) Thanks for the meal. That was delicious. Bye. Ok. I am going to get a newspaper.
(to a man in the street) Excuse me.
The Man in the Street: Yeah. Can I help you?
Mark: Do you know where I can buy a newspaper by any chance?
The Man in the Street: Yeah sure. I will give you directions. It is a little bit complicated. If you follow my hand…
The Man in the Street: You go straight along this road as far as you can until you come to a palm tree. Like several palm trees.
The Man in the Street: Coconut trees.
Mark: Coconut trees.
The Man in the Street: As soon as you pass the coconut trees, turn to your left and go straight until you come to a very big traditional house. A dark wooden house. And then you turn left and immediately right and then you follow the island…around…
Mark: To get a newspaper. Isn’t there somewhere in the city where I can get a newspaper?
The Man in the Street: Well, it is not as difficult as it seems actually. Ok. Yeah. I am sorry. I forgot. There is one just over there!
