last week I organised our whole department we took a outing trip, outside meeting to zhang ye in province gang su. We had a vote, more than 10 people choose zhang ye, another choice is nei mong gu, both are in the north of china because I think if we don’t take this time to this place we will never go on by myself. When we at there there are few people, only our 20 people in that sight seeing, we can do anything we want, we took a lot of picture.
