Speaking

I would like to go to Veranasi because I like the atmosphere about that city, it’s a small and ancient city. The people in VS are good and happy, they enjoy their lives regardless wealthy or not. Every day there are two  ceremonies, one in the morning and one in the evening.  That’s why I like VS, if I have time I will go to there on ChineseNY day, because these days are perfect time to go there, the weather will warm and suitable. I also like Mumbai in India because this is modern and clear city in India, there are a lot of shopping malls and local shops. I can buy lots of local clothes and jewelry, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The most important reason is that there is a famous museum in Mumbai, I can see lots of miniature paintings and sculptures inside. I bought one book from there last year.
