Melissa:  Hey Michelle, jump in quick. It's pouring out there!
Michelle:  Oh hi Melissa. Are you going to the conference too? I was planning to pick up Mr. Campbell.
Melissa:  Yes, he told me. We need to pick him up at his hotel and then go to the conference.
Michelle:  Oh I see, okay. So I heard you got married. Congratulations!
Melissa:  Ah thank you! I'm very excited. We were going to get married next year, but then we decided to get married on holiday instead. It was wonderful.
Michelle:  That sounds so romantic! Jack and I were hoping to get married in Europe next year, but we had to postpone our plans. We just don't have the money!
Melissa:  I know what you mean. I think Shanghai is getting more and more expensive, don't you?
Michelle:  I sure do. In my opinion it's actually becoming more expensive than back home.
Melissa:  Definitely. Oh there's Mr. Campbell. Driver can you stop here please?
