Amy: Hey, everybody. My name is Amy.

Curtis: And I’m Curtis.

Amy: And we’re here from RealEnglishConversations.com.

But anyway, let’s get started with today’s conversation.

Curtis: Hi everybody, today we’re going to be talking about what we used to do before we were English teachers, and we used to have a business and run a business that was a delivery business. What is a delivery business all about, Amy?

Amy: Well, a delivery business or a delivery service is actually a service that we provided to people to bring things to their home that they needed. So, for example, if somebody needed something from the grocery store, maybe they needed a few ingredients like some milk and butter and a loaf of bread, they could call us and we would bring those things to their house. And some of the other things that we received orders for were food from restaurants that didn’t deliver and also for drinks, specifically alcoholic ones, beer and wine, for example.

Curtis: There are so many different people that use a delivery service. So there are people who are old and people who don’t get around as easy as the rest of us, but primarily I think it was for lazy people.

Amy: Yeah, exactly. The people that we delivered to, a lot of times they actually had their own car and they literally just didn’t want to go out and get the things themselves. I mean it make sense if you don’t have a vehicle and the store is a little bit far from your house, it can be really convenient to have someone to bring it to you.

This podcast shares the travel and cultural adventures that Amy and Curtis experienced during the Carnival in Barranquilla, Colombia.
