I go outside to go to the Bund. We go outside to ride the bicycle. I go there with my parents. I eat the food. I eat the noodles. It’s not so far away but we buy the taxi to there for 14 minutes. And, we went on a boat to travel to the other side. We want to go to the Oriental Pearl Tower but we see a park and we go in and ride a bicycle there and we don’t go to the Oriental Pearl Tower. Because there is a long long way to ride a bicycle and we ride across the bridge. It look like a park but it isn’t a park and you can ride a long way. No, I don’t like it, I hate all the sport. My sport class is like English class. The teacher teach in English.
