AExcuse me. Where is Q-Duck? I remember it was around the second intersection of this street.
BQ-Duck? Do you mean the famous roast-duck store?
BThey have moved to some other places long time ago.
AWow, this place is quite different from ten years ago when I first came to China.
BYeah, a lot of changes have happened here.
AThis street used to have few stores. But now, you can see supermarkets, shopping malls and department stores everywhere.
BYeah, they are my wife’s heaven, but not mine. I always get lost in the supermarket.
AMe too! I was lost three times ten years ago. There were no English directions then.
BIs that better now?
AYeah, there are many English signs, and wrong spellings as many as them.
AWhat’s your little caper? Come home so late! We are all worried about you.
BOh, I am terribly sorry. But I was so captivated with the singer at the subway exit. So I forgot the time.
ASinging? At the subway exit? Oh, it sounds like someone needs some money.
BOh, no, the guy was a musician who just sang. He played the guitar and sang so many cool pop songs. Many people were drawn to his music and there was no hat on the floor. He sang for appreciation, but not for money.
AIt is just pop song,you could have sung there too if you want it.
BOh, no, it was a kind of pop art. I like it but I couldn’t do it that well.
AHoney, just do it next time. Have you heard of the real art in the subway station in Russia?
BNo, but tell me some. I am interested.
AMany oil painting exhibitions are there. That is a kind of Museum Exhibition.
BAre there many people there? Do you think people actually like them?
AI am sure you will. There are some works, and some students who major in painting interpret the meaning for visitors. And people can enjoy the paintings while waiting for the train.
BBut I still prefer the pop music in the subway.
ABoth the pop music and the oil painting ate arts, but with different aesthetic values.
BDad, you talk well, but can you appreciate that kind of art?
ANot well enough, but I’m learning.
AIt is difficult for old people to do away with old ideas.
BSo the reform can not be carried out well.
AThe government is making efforts to change situation.
BEasier said than done.
