Mari: When you have to go to the bathroom so badly, and you just cannot find a public restroom. Alison: It’s so true, and there aren’t very many alternatives. Mari: No. And I feel like we’re so lucky in the US because we have a lot of public restrooms. If you’ve traveled extensively, you don’t always get to places that have them. Alison: Exactly. Mari: And then you realize… Pretty lucky. Now, the flip side of that is that they are not always the cleanest places, are they? Alison: I know! I always worry about my hygiene when I go in. I was in a public restroom the other day, and there were no soap dispensers and no paper towels. Mari: I understand. And sometimes, there’s a lack of privacy, like there’s not really doors, and the door doesn’t lock. But you know, when it’s an emergency, they’re your best resource. Alison: I am glad we have options. Discussion Mari and Jessica agree that public bathrooms have advantages and disadvantages. They are not usually clean places, and Jessica worries about her hygiene whenever she uses a public restroom. Also, because they are public, these bathrooms are often missing necessary supplies, like soap and paper towels. And they don’t always give people enough privacy.However, Mari and Jessica also think that, in an emergency situation, a public bathroom is a wonderful resource. Not every country has restrooms for people to use when they are traveling around town. Marni thinks people in the US should feel lucky because they have the option to use public restrooms, and Jessica agrees with her.Do you have many public bathrooms in your country?

Here are a few dialogues between people at Sapporo Station. JR Hokkaido is the company View All Dialogues + Where is Stella Place? A: Excuse me. Where is Stella Place? B: It’s just over there. A: Okay. Thank you. Buying a ticket A: Excuse me. How much is a ticket to Otaru station? B: There are 3 stations there. Where do you want to go in Otaru? A: I want to see the canal. B: Okay. Catch a train to the final stop in Otaru. The ticket is 640 yen. But make sure you don’t get off at Otaru Minami or Otaru-chikko. About Sapporo Station Address: 4 Chome Kita 6 Jonishi, Kita Ward, Sapporo, Hokkaido 060-0806 Opened: November 28, 1880 Station Code: 01 Japan’s train stations can be confusing. For example, JR Tokyo, JR Shinjuku, and JR Ueno are enormous maze-arrays of trains, subways, super ways, escalators, shops, underground passageways, and constantly-flowing crowds. Compared to them, JR Sapporo is a lot easier to use. Even when completely revamped in 2003, and despite serving a city of nearly two million people, JR Sapporo Station managed to remain self-contained and manageable. Coming from New Chitose Airport, you will disembark on an elevated platform with views of the city facing North and South. It’s a pleasant view of the city but follow the crowds downstairs to the main floor. You’ll pass by kiosks, shops, and if it’s wintertime, Sapporo denizens standing snugly around portable space heaters installed by the station. Winters in Hokkaido are quite cold, and JR Sapporo Station’s platforms are of course somewhat exposed to the elements. But not to worry. Keep walking: You’ll feel the station sharply warm up by degrees the closer you get to the exit ticket gates, which face East and West.
About Peru Peru is a country in South America. That’s home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains. The region around Machu Picchu is rich in archaeological sites. Especially the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco. On Peru’s arid Pacific coast is Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art. Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel. Located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru, on a 2,430 meter mountain ridge. It is located in Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District, above the Sacred Valley. It is 80 kilometers northwest of Cuzco, through which the Urubamba River flows. In 2005, there were over 400,000 visitors. That made their way to the top of the mountain to see the beautiful views. About Myself – Transcript My name is Ivan and I am from Peru. My question is how did you learn English? Well, it all started when I was in high school and my teacher told me I had a good command of the English language, and that I should study it to speak it fluently. That motivated me, and I decided to change all of my habits and do things differently. I started to watch TV shows in English, movies in English. Pretty much everything in my life changed to the point where everything I did involved the English language. Little by little, I started to learn more, new words, new phrases, and so I decided it was time to take it a step further. So I entered an institute and started to learn the English language professionally. Once in there, I entered into a website where I met a lot of people from all over the world speaking English. And to this day some of these people continue to be my friends and I practice English with them every day.
