‘Which way are we going now?’

‘I’m not sure. I don’t know exactly where we are.’

‘OK, let’s talk to those people to get some help.’

‘I don’t think that they can help us.’

‘Why do you think so?’

‘Just look at them. Look at the way they’re dressed. They do not look like local people to me. They look like tourists.’

So what?

‘What do you mean “so what”? If they are not from here, then they won’t be able to help us to find the way.’

‘You cannot know that until you ask. They may not be from here, but they may know the way.’

‘OK, we may go and ask them, but I don’t think they will be able to help us.’

‘And I think that you’re thinking too much. Just go and ask them’

‘Why me? Are you not coming with me?’

‘No, I’m not. Your English is very good, unlike mine. Just go and talk to them. I’ll wait for you to come back with good news.’

‘And what if they cannot help us? If I ask them and they won’t know the way, what then?’

‘What do you mean “what then”? If they cannot help you, you will go and ask somebody else. And then again. And again. Until you know which way we need to go.’

‘You will learn some English when we get back home!’

‘Yeah, yeah. Go now. And be quick!
