Task 1 1.1. Read the text and translate it in the written form. Прочитайте и сделайте письменный перевод текста. No ordinary place to eat! For hundreds of years when tired travelers stopped on their journeys, there were only a few places to eat and drink. Nowadays, streets are lined with restaurants, cafes, and snack bars, but some people want something more unusual. Dinner in the sky Dinner in the sky is for people who want more than a little experiment when they go out to eat. They sit at a huge table which hangs from a crane fifty meters in the air. It’s not a good idea for people who are afraid of heights or for those who don’t have much money. It costs ₤10, 000. The twenty-two diners wear seat belts and relax and enjoy the views while the chefs prepare the finest food in front of them. The restaurant opened in Belgium in 2006, but now has branches in Paris, Dubai, Florida, and Las Vegas. David Ghysels, the Belgian organizer says, ‘We realized that people were bored with going to the same old restaurants. They wanted to try something different. The sky’s the limit with us!’ The crane is checked carefully before every sitting. The table is 9m 5 m and weighs six tones. In the center there is a sunken platform for the chef and two waiters. The food is delicious, but most guests don’t feel like eating until after a few drinks! Then they also get the courage to look down at the ground where tiny people are looking up in amazement and waving. Dinner in the sky is very exciting and the food is good, but there are problems. For example, even in quiet weather conversation is difficult because of the wind. Guests shout to each other across the table. Also, the loo. You can’t go to the loo until the table descends again. Difficult for some! But later, back on earth, after a visit to the loo, the guests have a great experience to talk about. Lucy: “I was hungry when I arrived at the restaurant, but when I saw the crane I forgot about being hungry. I was so frightened. The host, David, said ‘Don’t worry, it’s 100% safe’. Huh! I’m sure a few of the other guests felt like me – they looked very pale. Anyway, we sat down at this huge table, fastened our seat belts and up, up, up we went. I couldn’t look down. Everyone was saying, ‘What a wonderful view’, but I just couldn’t look. Then one of the waiters put a glass of wine in my hand and I opened my eyes and the view was amazing. People were waving to us from the ground. They probably thought we were mad. The weather was perfect, thank goodness, just a little breeze. I began to enjoy it. The other guests were all great fun. I didn’t know anyone at the start, but I soon made some friends and the food was good too, especially the prawns. The chef cooked them in front of us on a tiny cooker. But best of all, was at the end, when everybody learnt my name they started singing ‘Lucy in the sky with diamonds’. No diamonds, but I was certainly in the sky. I was quite sorry when we came down to earth again”. 1.2. Answer the questions in the written form. Письменно ответьте на вопросы. 1. What is unusual about the restaurant? 2.
