Yes thanks, I'm having a great time. I'm Rose…

Rose:
Do you know many people here?
Maria:
Not really. I'm here with Pedro….

Maria and Rose say:
Rose:
So which one is Pedro? The tall fit looking one with the guitar?
Maria:
Yes, that's Pedro. He's just moved in with Jim.

 

Rose asks a question about another person to continue the conversation.

Maria and Rose say:
Rose:
Yes, I remember you now too! Bogota, wasn't it?

That's right, I'm going home to visit my family. I used to live there, but last year I moved to Sydney.
