Last summer John went on holiday for two weeks to the island of Sardinia. He stayed in a hotel which had a
wonderful swimming pool and beautiful views of the sea. It was a village where the local people went fishing in
the winter, and foreign visitors came in the summer.
John spent his first day on the beach, but on the second day he felt very ill. First he was very hot, then he was too
cold. He couldn't understand why he felt like that. So he went to see the local doctor, who was a very nice man, and
whose English was excellent.
"Summer is a time when people often feel ill". The doctor said. "It's too hot for most of us! Take this medicine, and
stay out of the sun."
John took the doctor's advice, and stayed in his room for the rest of his holiday. He soon felt better. "What a cheap
