Leandro: When you said you got a plum job working abroad, I thought you were going to Europe or Asia. Where exactly is Hueller Island?
Alysson: It’s in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Here, I’ll show you on the map.
Leandro: Wow, I had no idea you’d be working in such a far-flung place. It’s a bit remote, isn’t it?
Alysson: It is, but it’s also unspoiled and beautiful. I’ve seen photos and it looks like my idea of paradise. See? After I get settled, you should come for a visit.
Leandro: It looks a little desolate. Is it hard to get to?
Alysson: You would need to take a 19-hour flight from here to the mainland and then a two-day boat ride to reach it.
Leandro: Aren’t you worried about living in such isolation? It’s so far from civilization.
Alysson: There are other people living on the island, you know, so it’s not like I wouldn’t see another living soul for days.
Leandro: Oh, I’m glad there’s a community living there. What is the population of Hueller Island?
Alysson: It’s small, which isn’t unusual for an island this size.
Leandro: How small?
Alysson: When I move there, it’ll increase to seven. And if you visit, you’ll make eight.
Leandro: I’ll give the idea of that trip all the consideration it deserves.
