Podcast Ep. 19 Vid. 4

A few seconds into this clip, the image flips over. In that gap, which we don’t see, he invites the person to meet him. With that in mind, can you translate this clip? (ЛУЧШЕ = better)

Check Answer

Алло? Здравствуйте. Да, это я.
Hello? Greetings. Yes, it’s me.

(He asks if they can meet.) Нет, нет…не у меня. Лучше в парке. Или в ресторане.
No, not at my place. Better in the park, or in a restaurant.

NOTE: Recall that the Russian word “У” translates literally as “at.” So he’s saying literally, “Not at me.” (As in, let’s not meet at my place.)
