Penguin: I'm not an Eskimo! Next Spring I want to visit my cousin Toucan in Rio, where it's always hot!
Reporter: Isn't the temperature there too hot for a penguin?
Penguin: It's hot, but you get the wind from the sea and it rains every afternoon.
Reporter: I prefer a warm and dry place, that's why I live in Australia.
Penguin: For me, hot and wet is best! But I have a friend who lives in London, where it's cool and there's a lot of fog.
