    Last summer, we were staying at the ‘Lilacs 1.Campsite’. We would play 2.basketball and 3.foosball every day. We became friendly with the 4.bartender. One day, he asked us to go shopping for him: he wanted 5 crates of beer. It’s very heavy! When we arrived at the supermarket, there were no 5.carts. So we came back empty-handed and people at the campsite almost had a revolution. We will remember that day forever!
