Street Conversations XLIII

I began to realize that health is the most important thing to have in this world. So I said, let’s see what girls have to say about this subject!

Sergiu: Ce-ar trebui să facă oamenii ca să fie mai sănătoși?

What would people have to do to be healthier?

Girl: Oamenii ar trebui să facă mai mult sport și să mănânce sănătos.

People would have to exercise more and eat healthy

Sergiu: Ce-ar trebui să facă oamenii să fie mai sănătoși?

What would people have to do to be healthier?

Girl: Mai mult sport, să mănânce mai sănătos, să nu fumeze, să nu consume alcool. Cam așa…gândesc. Lucruri pe care eu nu le fac.

More sport, eat healthier, not smoke, not consume alcohol. That’s kind of how..I think. Things that I don’t do.

Sergiu: Da? (Then I stopped the recording to find out more)


Sergiu: Inspirat de sfaturile ăstea, voi mânca niște miere.

Inspired by this advice, I will eat some honey.
