오늘의 영어 표현은: To tag along

It’s quite common to bump into people who come to Washington DC from near and far to attend meetings, conferences and briefings. 워싱턴 디씨에서 열리는 회의나 학회, 혹은 브리핑에 참관하기의해 사람들은 여기저기에서 많이 찾아옵니다. Especially near the House and the Senate buildings.

I met Don and his little 4-year-old daughter who drove all the way from the state of Vermont. 저는 미국Vermont 버몬트 주에서부터 [워싱턴 디씨까지] 운전해서 온 단(Don) 과 그의 4살 된 딸을 만났는데요, 운전하는데 10시간이나 걸렸다고 하더군요! 그들은 하원 건물 근처를 돌아다니고 있었는데, 누군가를 기다리고 있는것 같았습니다. I soon found out that Don’s wife had some important meetings to attend here and he just tagged along with his daughter.

그럼 제가 단(Don)과 함께 대화것을 먼저 들어보실까요?
