Kate: Hi Jerry. The school year is almost over. Do you have any plans for the summer holiday?
Jerry: I’m planning on sleeping all day, every day!
Kate: Oh, come on Jerry, you must be joking.
Jerry: Yeah, I’m just pulling your leg. Actually, I’m going to travel to Luxor in Egypt.
Kate: Really? Why would you go to Luxor but not to the Red Sea resorts? They’re much more popular tourist sites.
Jerry: Exactly! They are very popular, so they’ll be too crowded. What I need is peace and comfort. I enjoyed my last year trip to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, but there were so many tourists there. I think it spoiled the atmosphere a bit.
Kate: I’m sure Luxor won’t be so crowded. But won’t it be too hot in the summer?
Jerry: I’ll bear anything for the sake of the views of this ancient Egyptian city.
And I rely on air conditioning inside — the hotel promises it works perfectly there.
Kate: Well, that sounds good. I wouldn’t mind going there myself then. Still,
I wonder ... is there anything worth seeing in Luxor?
Jerry: Sure! For one thing, there’s the unique scenery of the city built directly on the Nile. I’m sure you’ve heard of Luxor Temple. There are also the Egyptian Pyramids which are said to be spectacular. They are a major tourist attraction, aren’t they?
Kate: Of course, I have heard of the Pyramids, but won’t you get bored just
looking at them?
Jerry: Come on Kate, there’s lots of things to do. I can take a river cruise on the Nile, and I will visit some excavation sites at Luxor as it is a very historical city with many ancient remains that are still amazing.
Kate: Well, when you describe it like that, it sounds really interesting!
Jerry: And that’s not all. I’ll be able to eat delicious, spicy food and enjoy swimming and sunbathing as they have a huge open-air swimming pool in the hotel.
Kate: I’m sure you’ll have fun, Jerry, but let me ask you — have you already reserved a room at the hotel you want? I find last minute bookings very disappointing.
Jerry: Don’t worry, I’m very lucky. I’ve reserved a room at the Pyramid Luxor Hotel, the best five stars resort in the area. I’ve seen some pictures on the Internet, it’s really nice!
Kate: That’s great, Jerry. I’m looking forward to seeing your photos when you get back.

They are very popular, so they’ll be too crowded. What I need is peace and comfort.
