Speaking

I went to the Nanjing last Friday to go to a concert. My friend and I didn’t get the ticket, but one of my friends get the ticket from a scalper. We try to buy the ticket online but the price didn’t come down. The concert is for some characters for a show. It is very expensive. One ticket from the official site is around 8000 yuan. We didn’t go to the concert so we went back to the hotel to eat and drink. We wait for our friend who went into the concert to come back to congratulate.
