Cora: Same here. Are you From around here?
Antonio: No, I’m Originally from Arkansas. How about you?
Cora: I’m a Native Californian, but I Grew up in the Middle East. My parents were in the military, so we moved Quite a bit, but mainly around the Middle East.
Antonio: That’s really interesting. I Spent some time in Jordan myself a few years ago doing research for my company. But I’ve lived in Los Angeles for over 10 years and consider it my Adopted hometown.
Cora: Isn’t that funny? Even though I was born here, I only moved back here two months ago. I’m sure you know the city much better than I do.
Antonio: I’d be happy To show you around, to help you Get reacquainted with L. A.
Cora: I was only eight years old when my family moved away, so I Have a lot of catching up to do.
Antonio: Let’s start next weekend. I’ll show you some of the places where the Locals like To hang out.
Cora: That sounds great. Is this how all Angelinos Treat newcomers?
Antonio: Absolutely! I’m the city’s One-man welcome wagon.
