GOING ABROAD

Techmachimport got instructions to buy chemical equipment abroad. With this in view1 Mr. Kozlov, President of Techmachimport went on business to Great Britain to place an order with a British firm.

He phoned the Intourist booking-office to book a seat for a plane to London. He found out that there were flights daily and that it would take him three and a half hours to get to London.

Mr. Kozlov booked a seat for the TU-154 jet-liner. The next morning he had arrived at Sheremetievo airport by seven o'clock, an hour before the plane took off.

After the clerk had registered his ticket and passport Kozlov filled in a declaration and went to the waiting-room. There were a few passengers there.

They were all waiting for the announcement to get on the plane. In ten minutes they heard the announcement, "Attention, please. Will passengers for London join Flight 31 ?"2

When Mr. Kozlov got on the plane, the stewardess showed him his seat.

At eight o'clock the plane took off. Although it flew at a high speed3, the passengers felt well. At 11.30 a.m.4 the plane landed at London airport.

 

AT THE CUSTOMS OFFICE

Mr. Kozlov is going through the Customs at London airport.

Customs Official: Is this your suit-case, sir?

Kozlov: Yes, that's right.

Customs Official: Will you, please, open it?

Kozlov: Certainly.

Customs Official: Have you any things to declare?

Kozlov: No, I don't think so, though I have some cigarettes for

my own use.
Customs Official: How many packets of cigarettes have you got?
Kozlov: Oh, I've got only three packets. I believe they'll be duty

free.

Customs Official: Yes, of course5. Have you got any presents or any things

liable to duty?
Kozlov: No, I haven't.

Customs Official: Well, thank you, sir.
Kozlov: Thank you.
