Waiter Race – level 3

19-10-2017 07:00

People often dub Buenos Aires, Argentina, ‘the Paris of the South’ as it takes great pride in its café culture, and it recently hosted its annual waiter race.

Hundreds of waiters took part in the race, delivering drinks to customers 1,600 metres away as fast as possible. Waiters and waitresses competed in different categories for a prize of 1,000 US dollars.

Difficult words: dub (nickname – give an informal name), annual (happening every year).
