Подкаст на английском — Green Tea
There is a frog. She lives in Austin, Texas. The frog really loves tea. Everyday, she drinks 85 cups of tea. Her favorite tea is green tea.
One day, she meets a Japanese man. The man tells the frog, «If you love green tea, you should go to Japan. Japan has the best green tea in the world».
The frog is very excited. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any money. She needs money to buy a plane ticket to Japan. She wants to buy a Japan Rail Pass as well.
So she goes to her Mom. She asks her mother, «Can you please give me 4000 dollars. I want to go to Japan to drink green tea».
Her mother says, «Are you crazy? I don’t have 4000 dollars».
The frog doesn’t give up. She goes to her Dad and says, «Dad, can you please give me 4000 dollars. I really want to go to Japan to drink green tea.»
Her father says, «I want to help you, for sure, but I just don’t have the money. Why don’t you go to the bank and get money.»
The frog runs to the bank. She goes inside and looks around. She sees a giant safe in the back. She goes to the safe. Because she is a small frog, no one sees her.
She gets into the safe, and takes 7462 dollars. Then she leaves the bank. No one sees her. She buys a first-class ticket to Japan, and a Japan Rail Pass.
When she arrives in Kyoto, Japan she immediately goes to a tea shop. She buys 126 cups of green tea, and drinks them all.
She smiles and says, «That’s the best tea I’ve ever had!»
