The Venice Carnival
Hi Chris,
1 I hope this finds you well. I’m really sorry I haven’t

written for so long, but the beginning of the year was really busy for me — and then I went off to Venice for the carnival. In fact, I only got back to Boston last night!

2 Venice was absolutely amazing. You would’ve

loved it. I stayed with Nina, a friend of mine. It was really kind of her to put me up — and it meant I didn’t have to struggle with trying to find a hotel, which would’ve been almost impossible! The city was completely packed with tourists for the whole ten days, and prices really shoot up.

Translation
3 Nina lives about ten minutes’ walk from the main

square, where they hold the big costume parade on the first day. Lots of tourists were dressed up in all kinds of crazy costumes — giant rabbits, cats, even hot dogs — but the locals tend to stick to traditional costumes and they all wear masks as well. My favourite costume is called the Plague Doctor. It’s really scary and I was told it’s based on real doctors, who used to look after the dead and dying when the plague hit Venice.

4 The word carnival m

eans ―farewell to meat‖.

Traditionally, the carnival took place in the week leading up to Lent, 40 days before Easter, during which time people fasted. That’s why food is really important during carnival, and people tend to eat a lot.

5 Venice is as beautiful as everyone says — very

romantic and pleasant. All through the carnival, though, it’s transformed as they have big fireworks displays, parties and so on. People also set off fireworks all the time, which can give you a real shock if you’re not expecting it. I nearly had a heart attack several times.

Workers Can’t Bank on Holidays
1 The August bank holiday is here again. Travelling

during this time is not a good idea. The busiest weekend of the year will see millions of people get stuck in traffic on the motorway; bored children ask, ―Are we there yet?‖; delays at airports and accidents on the roads. Hundreds of people will get sunburnt on crowded beaches; children will throw up after eating too much ice cream; adults will drink too much beer; families will argue and kids will scream ―It’s not fair!‖ Then it’s home: more traffic jams, more delays, more arguments.

2 You might think that anyone who is going to miss

this annual horror show is lucky. However, British trade unions are using this weekend to highlight the low number of public holidays in Britain compared to the rest of Europe. They also want to draw attention to the fact that a large number of workers are not getting their legal entitlement of twenty days’ holiday per year.

3 A trade union spokesman said yesterday, ―British

workers get fewer public holidays than workers in any other European country, and the government also allows companies to include those eight days within the compulsory 20. British workers are being ripped off and it needs to change.‖ The unions want the government to start by declaring three new public holidays. Britain has just eight public holidays compared to sixteen in Slovenia.

Unit 7 Travel

Translation The unions also say there is a worrying trend for some workers not to take their full entitlement to holiday because they have too much work. In Japan, a lack of holidays has been linked to the problem of karoshi —dying from overworking.

5 While Britain and Japan may want more, other

countries are debating whether to reduce the number of holidays. France cancelled one holiday in May to help pay for the care of old people. In Puerto Rico, businesses have complained that the high number of holidays – government workers take twenty-one – is damaging the economy.
