Alison:Well, it’s been busy over the last few months . With the renovations, this studio finally feels like home away from home to me.
Janet:Good for you! I guess you get to stay overnight here quite often…
Alison:Yes, at first, I felt a little homesick, but then I got used to it. I’d say I enjoy staying in the city now. And what’s new with you?
Janet:Not much… let’s see… I now teach yoga class on Friday evenings, but it’s nothing to write home about.
Alison:Why? I thought it would be exciting for you, given how much experience you have.
Janet:Oh, I wish I could get used to the city life like you, but I miss our little town. There’s no place like home.
