CITY BREAKS

ATHENS

During the day and usually all night, this city is busy and full of life. It has everything from the ancient to the most modern. Shopping can be great fun at the designer stores in Kolonaki or, if you don't have much money, then you can find some great things to buy at Monastiraki Flea Market. Eating in Athens can be very cheap, especially at the traditional taverns where the atmosphere is very friendly. If you like sightseeing, then as long as you have time, there is plenty to see but, of course, at the top of your list must be the spectacular 2,500-year-old Parthenon, the symbol of the city.

CAIRO

An ancient city where you can find the traditional and the modern existing together. In the bazaars, you will find handmade leather goods, jewelry, rugs, shoes, bags, and exotic spices. The city also has many ancient monuments and sights. It would be impossible to go to Cairo and not visit the amazing Pyramids of Giza. Perhaps you may even like to take a camel ride! The Egyptian museum contains all the gold and jewelry that was discovered in the pyramids and is a truly unforgettable experience. You can also take a trip deep into the desert with a jeep just ask your holiday rep to organize it for you.

NEW YORK

In this city, it is possible to eat whatever you want as it has more than 6,000 restaurants, from the most romantic to places where you can take the children. You can try food from all over the world in areas called 'Chinatown', 'Little India' and 'Little Italy'. Many say that it is the shopping capital of the world and with thousands of stores offering a choice from cheap second-hand clothes to the most expensive designer labels, there is something for everybody. The 'city that never sleeps' is also full of life at night with bars and clubs playing all kinds of music. Of course, no stay in the Big Apple would be complete without a visit to the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.

Read the passage and answer the questions.

The time machine

“So you’re telling me this is a time machine?” Eric asked. “Yes,” his Uncle Joseph replied. “I’ve been working on it for years here in my lab.” Eric looked around the lab. A bank of computers lined one of the walls. Metal shelves held bottles and jars filled with strange liquids. There was a big metal table in the middle of the room. There were wires and tiny machine parts scattered all over it. In the middle of the table was a silver box. The box had a small computer screen and keyboard on its face. 

“All you do is type in the time you want to go to,” Uncle Joseph said. “The box will transport anyone within ten feet to that location.”  “So you mean if you typed in January 3rd, 2033, it would send us back to yesterday?” Eric asked. Uncle Joseph nodded. “Yes. But it can do better than that. I could type in 150 million years BC, for example.” 

He typed in the date on the keyboard. “Cool,” Eric said. “And then you just press this button?” Eric put his finger on the button. “Eric, no!” Uncle Joseph cried. But he was too late. Eric pressed the button. The room began to spin. When everything settled, they were no longer in the lab. Tall, green plants grew all around them. A volcano rose up in the distance. Then the ground began to rumble. A huge dinosaur stomped toward them! “Hey, a Brontosaurus!” Eric said. “Your time machine really works!”
