Trev, Paul and Wei discuss how to get from New Orleans to Orlando Trev: I think we should fly. It's the fastest option. Wei: But if we fly, we'll miss out on the landscape. Trev: Airplanes are out, then. We've already rented a car. How about hitchhiking? Wei: That sounds dangerous. I'll pass. Trev: The only other options are the train or a bus.
