Alisha:Hey, you're back from your vacation.
Where did you go? New York City? Miami?
Ramon:I decided to spend my vacation in Maddieville.
Alisha:Where is Maddieville? I've never heard of it.
阿丽莎: 玛迪威尔在哪?我从来没有听说过 。
Ramon:It's a small town about a six-hour drive from here.
I read about it being a throwback to the days of small shops and friendly neighbors, with a charming old-fashioned main street.
It was really nice.
Alisha:I'm not sure I'd want to travel back in time.
It doesn't sound very exciting.
Ramon:It wasn't as lively as some places I could have gone, but I enjoyed the quaint shops, the unpretentious people, and the genuine friendliness.
Alisha:What did you do for an entire week?
Ramon:I perused the shops, ate at the family-owned restaurants, and learned about the quirky history of the town by shooting the breeze with the old-timers at the local bar.
Alisha:To each his own, but that sounds like dullsville to me.
Ramon:Then I guess you wouldn't want to go back with me this summer for their wine festival.
Alisha:Did you say wine?
Maybe I shouldn't dismiss small town charm quite so quickly.
