Writing

Before we went to see the light shows I had collected some information about their positions and timings. First, we looked the show which is the closest to our room is held at half past 6. There was a big unreal pink lotus flower in the middle of the lake. When the song and the light came up, a women appeared at the lotus flower. She was dancing for a while then disappeared repeatedly. I was not sure what she wanted to express. So I focused on the light and the water column. The light could exchange to be some different dynamic pictures on the water column by projector in the sentence. It was beautiful and seem real. The show about ten minutes, and we went to the next spot. Before we arrived, I had bought a refrigerator magnet. I’m glad to collect them at different places where I’ve been to. The second show began at a quarter to 7. I saw few monks and actresses stood on each floor outside the temple. When the song began, the actresses threw petals at us and the monks spoke scriptures. A golden light shined the temple suddenly, I thought I will saw the Sakyamuni at the moment. It was a grand sight. The third show was similar to the first show, so we saw a little time and go back. We ate several foods at that night, all of them were expansive. I was fast asleep after took a shower due to I was so tired.
I wrote the tour story for 3 parts. It just only was happened at one day. Next time I will write the next day what happened.

Before we went to see the light shows I had collected some information about their positions and timings. First, we watched / saw the show which is (was) the closest to our room and was held at half past 6. There was a big unreal pink lotus flower in the middle of the lake. When the song began and the lights came up, a women appeared in / inside / in the middle of the lotus flower. She was dancing for a while then disappeared repeatedly. I was not sure what she wanted to express, so I focused on the light and the water column. The lights could be combined with some dynamic pictures on the water column by projector in the distance / and I think they used a projector to do this. It was beautiful and seemed real. The show was about ten minutes, and afterwards we went to the next spot. Before we arrived, I had bought a refrigerator magnet because I’m like to collect / I enjoy collecting them at different places that / which I’ve been to. The second show began at a quarter to 7 and I saw a few monks and actresses (who were) standing on each floor outside the temple. When the song began, the actresses threw petals at us and the monks spoke / recited scriptures. A golden light shined the temple suddenly, and I thought I would see the Buddha at that moment. It was a grand sight. The third show was similar to the first show, so we watched for a little time and went back (home / to the hotel). We ate supper / ate a late dinner / lots of different types of food at that night, and all of them were expensive. I was fast asleep after took a shower due to the fact that / as I was so tired.
I wrote the tour story in 3 parts even though it just only was happened on one day so next time I will write what happened the next day.
