The day after our wedding, me and my wife Becky met our friend Charlotte and her husband Alan for coffee and a movie.
Me: Hi Charlotte! Hi Alan!
Charlotte: Hi! So, are you two finally married now?
Me: Yep! She said yes, and so did I!
Charlotte: Congratulations! We're so happy for you!
Alan: Yeah, congratulations! Are you planning a honeymoon?
Becky: Next week, yeah. But don't ask us where we're going. It's a big secret!
Charlotte: Ooh! Suspense!
Me: We haven't told anyone. Not even my mother knows.
(We have a cup of coffee while waiting for the film to start.)
Alan: So I take it you didn't watch the opening ceremony last night, hehe.
Me: Haha, yeah. Didn't want to spend our wedding night watching Bush speak. I'm not so much into sports in any case.
Alan: Yeah, we didn't watch it either. It came on way too late in the night.
Charlotte: Should we maybe get going? We don't want to miss the start of the film.
Alan: Okay, could we get the check, please?
Me: I'll take it, Alan... No, wait. I think I left my purse in the car. Ahh!
Alan: Don't worry about it, I'll take care of it... Hmm, forty-five? How much is that? I still haven't gotten used to this money, haha.
Becky: Yeah, I still convert them in my head too.
Alan: You girls go ahead if you want, I'll catch up. Where are you parked?
Becky: Over there, just across the street. Looks like it's raining. We'll be in the car.
Where does this story take place? Looking for the name of the country.
