What Happened While the Train Was in the Tunnel?

In the compartment of a train travelling through the countryside, there were four people a young girl, an old lady, an army officer and a young cockney. Suddenly the train went into a tunnel: for half a minute the carriage was in complete darkness and in the darkness came the sound of a large kiss followed almost immediately by a loud slap.

When the train emerged and it was light again, everybody saw the officer with a bleeding nose and a swollen eye. The old lady thought that the young girl hit the officer for stealing a kiss.

The young girl thought it was strange that the officer kissed the old lady and not her. The poor officer thought that the cockney kissed the girl and the girl hit him. And the cockney laughed silently at the trick he had played. Im a clever chap, he thought to himself. I kissed the back of my hand, hit the officer in the face and nobody said a word.

MEALS

People in different countries have different ideas about what is good to eat and what is the best diet for them. So, we live in a country where breakfast is a very rich meal. We have not only a roll with butter, jam or honey, but ham or sausage and fried eggs or porridge for breakfast.

In the morning I have my typical breakfast. It may be a cup of tea with some sandwiches or scrambled eggs with milk.

Lunch is not very popular in our country but when we have some breaks at the University called windows we have lunch in our University canteen. We may take fried fish, roast meat, cutlets, beefsteak with potatoes and different salads. For dessert we may take compote, tea with lemon, ice-cream or fruit.

The main and the most abundant meal of the day is dinner, but as we are students its better to call it supper. A full typical dinner consists of soup, a main course and a dessert. My favourite soups are: red beet and mushroom soups. For the main course I usually have some meat or fish, potatoes and vegetables. The most typical meat is a pork or veal chop or chicken. Some other dishes are different kinds of salads.

As for the British, there are four meals a day in an English home: breakfast, lunch, tea, and dinner.

Breakfast is the first meal of the day. It is at about 8 o'clock in the morning, and consists of porridge with milk and salt or sugar, eggs boiled or fried, bread and butter with marmalade or jam. Some people like to drink tea, but others prefer coffee. Instead of porridge they may have fruit juice, or they may prefer biscuits.

The usual time for lunch is 1 o'clock. This meal starts with soup or fruit juice. Then they have some meat or poultry with potatoes, carrots and beans. Then a pudding comes. Instead of the pudding they may prefer cheese and biscuits. Last of all is coffee black or white. Some prefer juice or lemonade.

Tea is the third meal of the day. It is between 4 or 5 o'clock, the so-called 5 o'clock tea. On the table there is tea, milk or cream, sugar, bread and butter, cakes and jam. Friends and visitors are often present at tea.Dinner is the fourth meal of the day. The usual time is about 7 o'clock, and all the members of the family sit down together. Dinner usually consists of soup, fish or meat with vegetables potatoes, green beans, carrot and cabbage, sweet pudding, fruit salad, ice-cream or cheese and biscuits. Then after a talk they have black or white coffee.

This is the order of meals among English families. But the greater part of the people in the towns and nearly all country-people have dinner in the middle of the day instead of lunch. They have tea a little later between 5 and 6 o'clock, and then in the evening, before going to bed, they have supper.

BRITISH RESTAURANTS

When a man and a woman want to get to know each other better, they often go out to a restaurant together. After all, it's easier to talk in a quiet atmosphere with soft music, wine and good food. Most British families go to restaurants only on special occasions, like birthdays or wedding anniversaries. The restaurants' best customers are business people, who meet in them to talk business in a relaxed atmosphere away from the telephone. They can eat what they like because the company pays the bill.

For visitors to London, eating out can be fun. But if you want that special feeling of London, go to the Ritz in Piccadilly for tea any afternoon at about half past four. And you'll see that the prices are very high. Then you can try England's favourite food fish and chips. Take it away and eat where you like in the park, on the bus or while you walk down the street.

British restaurants have not always been famous for their good food. Too often, they offered only fried food and chips with everything. But now healthy food is in fashion.

SHOPPING

Shopping takes much time in everybodys life. It means going to some place to buy things. For some people it is a hobby. They go shopping in their free time. Some people go shopping on weekdays to buy food.

My family and I do the shopping at weekends. My family is not very big, but my parents work hard and they have no time to go to buy things during a week. On Sunday we usually go to a large supermarket and buy food for the whole week. I dont like going there, because there are usually many people.

The supermarket has a lot of departments: a food department, a grocers, a butchers, a fishmongers, and even a chemists department. Sometimes my mother goes to the cosmetics department while my father and my brother go to the pet shop, which is situated there. My father likes to do the shopping in the butchers and in the fishmongers. The meat counters look very attractive. Chicken, ham, pork, bacon, beef, veal and mutton are at your disposal there. You will find a variety of sausages in this section, too.

In the fishmongers a special counter handles frozen and fresh fish; smoked and dry fish is also offered to the customers. Besides, the counter is full of sea products, quite exotic and unseen before.

There is a wide network of department stores and specialized shops in every town or city. Some of them are expensive, others are cheap and you have a choice. I dont understand those people who go to some specialized shops to buy things of a certain brand. Such things are rather expensive.

I prefer going to a department store to buy things. A department store has many departments: ready-made clothes, shoes, sports goods, toys, linen, etc. You can buy everything you like there. The things for sale are on the counters so they can be easily seen.

In the womens clothing department you can find dresses, costumes, blouses, skirts, coats and many other things.

In the mens clothing department you can choose suits, trousers, overcoats, ties, shirts, socks, etc.

I prefer doing the shopping alone when I need clothes or books. My favorite bookshop is in the centre of our town. I can spend hours there looking at different books and choosing the most interesting ones to read. I like to go shopping when I need to buy present for my family or friends. Sometimes my friend helps me to choose a present. She is a very nice girl with a good taste and she knows what things are good.

I also like to buy fruit and vegetables. They smell good and you feel as if you are in an exotic country. The section where fruit and vegetables are for sale is called a greengrocery. It always attracts a lot of customers because irrespective of the season the counters are full of fresh fruit and vegetables grown in Russia or brought from other countries. When you enter a greengrocery you feel you would eat everything they sell: grapes, berries, tangerines, oranges, pineapples, bananas, plums, pears, peaches, grapefruits, watermelons, carrot, cucumbers, etc.

Sometimes I have to go to the bakers to buy bread, buns, rolls, rings, rusks, pies and to a dairy shop to buy cheese, curds, milk or sour cream.

The method of shopping may vary. It may be a self-service shop where the customer goes from counter to counter, selects and puts into a basket everything what he wishes to buy. At the cash-desk he pays money for purchases. It is not a self-service shop where the shop assistant helps the customer in finding what he wants.

TEXT

Most of Londons big department stores are in Oxford Street and Regent Street. They are always crowded, but at sale times, in January and July, there are so many people that it is difficult to move and it is usually safer to go in the direction of the majority.

These days, it is often difficult to distinguish the goods in the large store from those in another. If you are looking for something different it is certainly worth going to New Covent Garden. This used to be Englands biggest fruit and vegetable market, but a few years ago, the market was moved to a new site on the other side of the River Thames. The old market, now called New Covent Garden, was restored and converted into a shopping centre. There are now more than forty shops of many different kinds and there are several places to eat and drink. The opening hours are different from most other shops: they open at 10 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. As well as shopping, there is entertainment with lunch-time theatre groups and classical, jazz, folk and pop music.

Kensington and Knightsbridge is an exclusive area of London. There you can find the department store that is the symbol of expensive and high-class living Harroads. People say you can buy anything in Harroads, including wild animals they even have a zoo, which will sell you lion cubs as well as more common pets such as dogs, cats or parrots.
