Last weekend, I drove to Mogan Mountain with my good friends for my holiday. It was a bad day with moderate rain. The traffic of the highway was terrible. It was almost impossible to move forward in half an hour. Fortunately the rest of the way went well. We left for there at 10AM. It took almost three hours to reach the foot of Mogan mountain.
We booked a homestay at the food of the mountain. The room was clean and facilities were complete. After arriving at the homestay, we had a rest and drove off to look for delicious food.
After dinner, we went back to the homestay. There were many facilities in the homestay. Such as KTV,table tennis. We also brought a bottle of champagne with us. We enjoyed ourselves while playing.
Because I had a cold before, I sleeped late the next morning. I got up and had a light breakfast.
Then we drove to see the scenery. But the road after the rain was not suitable for driving, especially there was a section of road going up the mountain, which was potholed and bumpy. It could only go ahead at a speed of 10 yards.We Found a small restaurant along the way, and returned home after a big meal.
It was a nice weekend like this, but the weather was a little pity. We decided that we would choose a good weather and go to Mogan mountain again next time.
