Dave:  Derek, I heard you’re going to Paris.

Derek:  Yes, I am.

Dave:  Ah, why’d you choose Paris?

Derek:  Um…just because I’m really interested in the art and the history and…stuff like that.

Dave:  Oh, that’s great. How did you book your flight?

Derek:  Um…well, I did some research online and…you know…compared a lot of prices. I found a good deal through a web site with…um…United Airlines.

Dave:  Are you doing a package trip, or just the airfare?

Derek:  Just the airfare. I wanted to look around…kind of do the same deal with the hotels. And so, I went online, researched again and found a hotel that was really close to the Eiffel Tower.

Dave:  How long are you going to be in Paris?

Derek:  About ten days.

Dave:  Is that going to be enough time to see everything?

Derek:  Ah…it’ll be enough time to see the lay of the land.

Dave:  Good. Have fun!
