Speaking

One time we were going to Tibet and we lost the seal on our passport. So we couldn’t travel on that day. Because Tibet is high in the mountains, it takes 3 days to get use to the air there. So carrying our bags to the second floor felt like going up to the tenth floor, so I felt really tired. Tibet is very interesting and the landscapes are very beautiful but there was one thing I didn’t like. The toilets are usually very dirty, sometimes they are just a hole in the ground or are just in a ditch.
