Interviewer: All shops?
Interviewee: Yes, everything. Food shops, chemists, and department stores.
(8) And on public holidays, only the banks are shut.
Interviewer: I see, um... Do you think New York is as multinational as London?

between these two cities was the height of the place. Everything was up in the Big Apple. We lived on the thirty-fifth floor. And of course everything is faster and the New Yorkers are much ruder.
Interviewer: Oh! In what way?
Interviewee: Well, pushing in the street, fights about getting on the bus. (10) And of course the taxi drivers! New York taxi drivers must be the rudest in the world!
