Themis: May I have the menu please?
Marina: You can get it on your own. It's over there.
Themis: OK. Hmmm, let's see... I would like to have green salad and some chicken.
Marina: We have run out of salad. Bad luck!
Themis: I would like to have some red wine, too.
Marina: I am too tired to go to the kitchen and tell the chef what you want. Do you know that I have to study English all day long?
Themis: I understand. Can you give me a napkin, at least, please?
Marina: I think that you want too many things .I told you that I am so tired. Anyway, I will bring the food.
Themis: (while eating) Excuse me. May I have more wine,please?
Marina: I think that you drink too much, but that's your problem. Here you are.
Themis: May I have the bill, please?
Marina: Oh, of course you can have the bill. It's 100€, but I want 20€ for a tip!
Themis: I've had enough! I would like to speak to your boss, young lady!
Marina: OK, but you'll have to wait. He's eating at the restaurant opposite the street.

On Easter Sunday I went with my family to my uncle Dimitris and we ate lamb and salad. Anyway, this Easter was fantastic.
Our city wants to build a hotel. There are some advantages and disadvantages about it.
Two reasons not to build a hotel OR: The disadvantages of a new hotel
There are two main reasons why a hotel is not useful. First of all, the air pollution will be more, because more cars will be there. The second problem is that the traffic and all the cars will make very big noise and the neighboorhood's life will change and that change will not be very good.
The advantages of a new hotel in the city
There are many advantages of building a new hotel. Firstly, we have a beautiful city, so with a new hotel more tourists will come. This means more money. Secondly, the owner wil hire a lot of employees, so we will have less unemployement. Also, our city has many pieces of land, which are not used. Therefore, the hotel is going to be built on this land.
Recommendations and suggestions
As a student, I strongly support that our city needs a hotel. All the hotels, in our beautiful city are not good, so a nice one will be able to make tourists come to the hotel. But this is my personal opinion. I think we must start a petition to let the local residents express their opinion and solve the problem.
