Sam : Yup! Going to Las Vegas. I'm Sam by the way.
Mark : First time going there?
Sam : Nah! My uncle lives there. So I fly there quite often. Anything you want to know about Vegas?
Mark : Well...This is my first time. I don't really know much about the place.
Sam : Oh, don't worry. You're going to love it. No matter what your preferences are, Vegas has something for you.
Mark : That's good to hear! I'm staying at the Bellagio. Any good places around that area?
Sam : Are you kidding me? It's a hub of entertainment. It's surrounded by luxurious hotels, huge casinos, delicious food and just about everything else you need.
Mark : Oh! Then I guess I made the right choice.
Sam : Sure did!
Jimmy :Hey, you look terrified. Everything alright?
Angie : I'm just afraid of planes. Besides that, everything is fine.
Jimmy : Oh! Take a deep breath. Let's talk and you can take your mind off the plane.
Angie : Well, I guess I can try that.
Jimmy : So, this is my first time to Las Vegas. I'm staying at the Bellagio. How do I get there?
Angie : Well, you need to take a cab. Just get off on terminal 3 and you will find a lot of them in that area.
Jimmy : Ok! No other options?
Angie : You could rent a car. Some rental companies have their stands around the airport. It might be cheaper.
Jimmy : Great. I'll do that I guess. By the way, we're already on the ground. I guess it did work out.
Angie : Seriously? Thanks.
Bill : Hey! Are you alright ? You look confused.
Paula : I've never been at an airport in my life. So I don't really know where I have to go first.
Bill : Well, for starters, where are you going?
Paula : I'm going to Las Vegas on Continental flight 21.
Bill : Ok! Let me see. First you need to check in at your airline's counter.
Paula : Yeah, I already did that. I got my boarding pass and checked my luggage.
Bill : Well, then you need to go through the security check.
Paula : Alrite. Anything after that?
Bill : Nothing much. Just go to your gate and wait for the boarding call.
Paula : Oh! That was easy. Thanks a lot.
Paula : Excuse me. I'm sorry but I couldn't help noticing that the book you're reading is really colorful. It looks interesting. I'm Paula by the way.
Angie : Hi, Paula. I'm Angie. Well, it's a book for children.Do you like reading children's stories?
Paula : I think I read this one as a kid. It has stories of Brer Rabbit, doesn't it?
Angie : Yes, it does. It's by Enid Blyton.
Paula : Oh, I love Blyton! I've been reading her stories since I was 5.
Angie : Me too. Where are you flying to?
Paula : Quincy, California. What about you?
Angie : My goodness! I'm going there, too!
