Un Piccolo Viaggio

I had my first conversation in Italian with the cab driver that took me from the airport to my hotel:
(I've done my best to translate it)

Me: Hello. Can you please take me to the Sheraton Hotel?

Cabbie: Do you prefer sherbet or gelato?

Me: I like sherbet but I prefer gelato. Straciatella [like chocolate chip] is my favorite flavor.

Cabbie: No, sherbert or gelato in the city center.

Me: Well, I hope that there are gelaterias downtown. Right now I would like to go to the Sheraton Hotel.

Cabbie: How close is it?

Me: I think that it is very close.

Two minutes and 15 euro later I was at the Sheraton.
