Emi : Do you often eat *fast food for lunch in America?

Miranda : Yes, very often. We love it, but Americans eat too much fast food. Some doctors say it has a lot of oil and is high in *calories. They also say that you lose your health easily if you eat too much. Have you tried American fast food?

Emi : Yes, of course. When I stayed in America last summer, I saw very big hamburgers in fast food restaurants. They were as big as my face! Also, . So I always bought a small one, but I couldn't drink it all.

Miranda : I sometimes want to eat American fast food, but I think Japanese box lunches are better.

Emi : Oh, now I remember. Japanese box lunches are very popular in *France. I hear the word “bento” is now in a *French dictionary. At lunch time, there are many people in front of bento shops. Some people make Japanese box lunches and bring them to their offices or schools. I read it in the newspaper.

Miranda : Really? I didn't know that.

Emi : French people love Japanese comics. They are interested in the people in the stories and even the food they eat. The box lunches they eat in the stories look good to French people. So bento has become popular in France.

Miranda : Wow! That's interesting! Japanese box lunches look beautiful and they are good for health. I want to learn how to make them before I go back to America. I want to show it to my family in America.
