Didn\'t you hear? A terrorist problem in Atlanta, hence all the policemen we saw.
Me too, but we didn\'t get anything. How disappointing!
Awful! I was really frightened.
Oh yes, I\'m sure he\'ll get us there without any trouble.
Oh yes, they must have fallen out of my pocket - it\'s got a hole in it.
No, it can\'t be more than a few hundred metres.
two kilometres long!
Yes, shall we rest where that child is, beneath that palm tree?
Oh yes! It must have just fallen from the tree.
Have you seen Sylvia’s nose? It’s incredible!
You should take a look at your own!

What happened to your nose? It’s all red!
I burned it when I was lighting my cigarette.
Wow, the way she rides on that board. Amazing!
Yes, me too. We can use the coupons they gave us. They entitle us to a free ice cream.
Great idea. We’ll collect some wood to burn.
They’re still playing volleyball.
No, it\'s possible to walk just about everywhere.
Me neither. It looks to me as if the wing is broken.
No, it’s an easy place to find your way around.
I wish I’d never come!
What a terrible trip!
They’re washing their clothes in the river, I think.
We’re going for a walk in the mountains. Do you want to come, Sylvia?
Only if you’ve got a global positioning device. I don’t want to get lost!
I slipped on my way to the river. It’s not too serious.
No, the soil would be much more fertile if there were.
Fantastic. The view from the mountains was wonderful.
OK… Ugh, it’s disgusting!
They’re sugarcane growers. They want to clear some more land.
Try this. It’s a natural remedy made from the leaf of a local plant.
The children jump 20 metres from a rock into the sea.
to JUMP = sauter
The only prospects are in tourism
How many letters are in the alphabet?
21, because ET went home and the FBI went after him.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Tell me, is the food here great or is it great?
What a beautiful pullover! Where did you get it?
At the market. The local women gather there to sell their clothes.
Oh no, it’s far too dangerous.
Oh yes. There are lots of industries where they can find work.
Yes, there’s a great pub in town where the local groups play.
I don’t see how anybody could. He’s terrible!
No, my boyfriend gave it me last night. Or perhaps I should say my fiancé.
Yes, I don’t think it appeals to anyone in the group.
Oh, yes everyone’s been complaining. It’s been the only topic of conversation since we arrived.
The guide is strange
Oh boy! That local food makes me sick as a dog!
What’s the matter? You’re not happy? Stop complaining!
Consider yourself lucky!
The tour guide wanted us to switch rooms with him because we had a larger drinks cabinet.
OK, but we want a discount!
wind speed = 100kph
What did the tour guide say about the food?
Nothing. He refused to make any comment.
Excellent. He conducts himself impeccably.
Incredible, wasn’t it? He’s more a liability than a help.
Why do you think? So he could get at our drinks cabinet!
Yes – provided he gives us a discount on our room.
Consider yourself lucky. We haven’t got a television at all.
Right! Swimming every day in this beautiful blue sea – what more could you want?
No, the wind never blows very hard.
Things go wrong!
I don’t think you should go in the water!
Oh, do come in! It’s lovely!
You may not know my significance, but I do!
Why are those houses in such a terrible state?
They got damaged last year in the cyclone.
Yes, the hotel manager advised us to stay out of the water.
Yes, the borders are very stable, and relations with other countries are excellent.
I don’t know. It’s difficult to understand, isn’t it?
Me too. He never makes a single mistake.
I feel sorry for him of course, but he was making our holiday hell.
Not really. His release is not something I care about.
Nor me, but in fact we’re doing all right.
The holiday continues
Oh I like her hair!
Me too. I want mine done the same.
What do you think, Frank?
Look at those souvenirs – aren’t they lovely?
How can you say that? You know I hate that sort of stuff.
Me too. I brought just the right sort of shoes.
Bones. But don’t ask me what sort of animal they come from!
Very. They certainly know how to work with iron here.
Just down the road. This style is very much the trend around here.
They sell some wonderful things on the beach. Look at these shoes I bought.
Well, they don’t sell dresses. I’ve been looking for one all day and I’ve found nothing.
It’s looks beautiful on you, Sylvia.
Me too. Never again, that’s for sure!
The investigation begins
fouiller (un endroit)
I’m staying inside!
That guy’s clothes are so cool!
My name is Pterophyllum scalare.
Do you think the police are going to find the tour guide?
I doubt it. They haven’t even started searching.
It’s probably sensible, though. It’s what the police suggested.
Yes, maybe they just want his clothes.
Me too. But I haven’t expanded my knowledge of them. I still know nothing at all.
Yes. Our minibus backed into a pineapple stand in the market.
No, they say it’s none of their business. They’re refusing to conduct an inquiry.
Yes, we’re organizing a trip to the local parish church.
Yes, it must be terrible never getting a chance to elect a new leader.
Don’t you know why? She’s furious she didn’t win the dance competition.
Oh no! The poor guide!
There’s nothing here.
I like tour guides!
I was by far the best!
Do you think the tour guide is able to move around freely?
Oh yes, I’m sure no one would tie him up.
I think so. The international observers have said there’s no need to review the voting process.
Didn’t you know? There was a fire in our room!
They haven’t found anything. Neither in the first investigation nor in the subsequent one.
Oh dear. The guide was wearing a brown shirt when he disappeared.
It\'s quite possible. Just to see if he had a nice taste.
So you didn\'t get the the crown of flowers. Never mind!
The mystery remains
Tourists can get so arrogant when they’re in groups!
He! He! He!
It’s one of our tour guide’s shoes. It was found under the wheel of a jeep.
I think he may have just wanted to take a break from being with us.
I\'m not sure. It\'s hard to say, isn\'t it?
Yes, I do. And they certainly don’t stay alive thanks to the tourists.
Me neither. I’ve heard a few complaints about tour groups being arrogant.
Yes, I heard. It was cut off several inches above the knee. Ugh!
Well, it certainly wasn\'t firm, that\'s for sure.
Yes, and we still don\'t know who is to blame for our guide\'s disappearance.
