La piscina è vuota

Il condominio dove sto ha una grande piscina a forma di otto. C’è anche la jacuzzi.

Per me la piscina è importante perché qui fa molto caldo. Infatti, io vado in piscina tutti i giorni.

Invece, gli altri del condominio no. E il condominio è grande: ha trenta piani. Eppure, la piscina è quasi sempre vuota.

Che ironia: la gente paga per stare in un posto con la piscina ma poi non la usa mai. Forse non hanno tempo per la piscina perché sono occupati a fare soldi per pagare la piscina.

Comunque è meglio non avere tanta gente in piscina.

C’è anche una palestra. Anche quella quasi sempre vuota. Neanch’io la uso perché non mi piace fare palestra.

Comunque io non pago per stare qui. È casa di un’amica.

The swimming pool is empty

The condo where I’m staying has a large, 8-shaped swimming poll. There’s even a Jacuzzi.

For me, the swimming pool is important because it’s very hot here. That’s why I go to the swimming pool every day.

On the contrary, the others from the condo don’t. And the condo is big: it has 30 stories. However, the pool is almost always empty.

That’s the irony: people pay to stay in a place with a swimming pool but then never use it. Maybe they don’t have time for the swimming pool because they’re busy making money to pay for the swimming pool.

Anyway, it’s better not to have too many people in the swimming pool.

There’s even a gym. That’s almost always empty, too. I don’t use it either because I don’t like working out in the gym.

Anyway, I’m not paying to stay here. It’s a friend’s place.
