NL: This is Nina Liakos with the third 001 podcast. Today I’m speaking with your classmate, Meshari Alkhuzaee. Thanks for helping with the podcast, Meshari.
MK: Hi Mrs. Liakos. I'm glad to talk to you.
NL: This week, we went to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Your assignment was to describe a painting. We looked at a lot of paintings of different places and people. You took pictures of paintings that you liked. The next day in the lab, you started to write a paragraph describing your painting. Meshari, did you enjoy the field trip?
MK: Yes, I did. It was a good day with my teachers and my classmates.
NL: What did you like the most?
MK: I liked everything in the museum. It was an interesting day.
NL: Was it difficult to choose a painting to describe?
MK: Yes, it was difficult to choose a specific picture because there are a lot of pictures, and all of them are beautiful.
NL: Which painting did you finally choose?
MK: I chose Claude Monet's Sainte-Adresse.
NL: Why did you choose that painting?
MK: Because when I looked at this picture, I remembered my hometown, Jeddah.
NL: What was it in the painting that reminded you of your home town?
MK: The painting shows fishing boats on a beach. When I was young, my family lived near the sea.
NL: After we looked at the paintings and took photos, we had lunch in the National Gallery cafeteria. What did you have for lunch, Meshari?
MK: I had white rice and a piece of fish.
NL: How was it?
MK: It was delicious. I liked it a lot.
NL: Would you like to go back to the National Gallery some day?
MK: Yes, I would like to go back to the National Gallery with my family.
