CITY TOURS

On the day of their city tour, the Silver wakes early. When Mr. and Mrs. Silver leave the coffee shop, the concierge greets the Silvers with a smile. The concierge gives Mr. Silver the tickets for the tour and says, "I'm not busy at the moment. Let me walk with you to where the bus will pick you up. I'll introduce you to the tour guide personally."

Soon the tour bus stops at the curb. The driver opens the door and the tour guide climbs down. As he has promised, the concierge introduces each member of the family to her.
