My friend's stories

by Yudai
(Tokyo)

I have a friend who has been to South Africa to see the World Cup. I have 2 stories about Africa that I heard from him. He is a man who often exaggerates. He says that beer wasn’t sold in the supermarket, but in the liquor shop.

I don’t understand a liquor shop「リカーショップ」. For a minute, I can understand the meaning of it. Liquor shop is 「さかや(酒屋)」.

The second story is about taxis. When he took a taxi, he noticed there wasn’t a meter in the taxi. So, we tourists must talk about a fare for our destination. But strangely, local people knew the fare for their destination.

These are the stories I know about South Africa. And it may be that my friend exaggerated.
