I decided to spend a year between school and university travelling round the world. I worked hard and saved quite a lot of money for the trip.

I then travelled to Rome, the capital of Italy, and spent a week visiting the city’s wonderful art galleries, churches and museums. From there I flew to Athens, Greece and took a boat to a small Greek island.
Next, I lfew to India, and travelled round it for about three months. Although the cities were crowded,the countryside was beautiful. I stayed in a small fishing village on the west coast and it was the happiest time of my life I then flew to northeast India, where there had been a terrible flood three months ago. The water had gone but the damage go crops and homes was terrible.
Then I flew to Japan where I spent twon interesting weeks. I was astonished to see that some people in the big cities wear masks to protect their lungs from pollution. I hope that never happens in my city. Then , at last, I flew all they way home again. It had been a great experience, but, yes, it was good to be home!

Warm weather doesn’t seem like a distant dream anymore. You may already be
planning a wardroberevamp（衣柜大改造 ）to welcome the season of change and new
But if you think the spring will once again be all about floral prints(印花)
and pastel colors(浅色), you’d better hold onto your wallet for a second. The
fashion world is gearing up for a total change in the 2013 spring season and some
not-so-spring-like trends will be making the rounds.
Black and white
The idea of wearing black and white in spring
sounds a bit crazy. Anyway, head-to-toe black
and white has become a huge trend(流行趋势) this
spring. The extreme contrast（撞色）between black and
white has pushed the way for a return.
But a black-and-white look doesn’t need to be boring. You
could play with different textures, such as mixing sequins(亮片)
with leather or tweed with lace（花呢配蕾丝）, to present new
takes on this classic combination（组合）.
Stripes are coming back as another replacement for floral patterns,
which we often connect with spring. You can find them in almost
every collection, major fashion designers are presenting on the runway.
The stripes of 2013 come in different shapes and they are noticeably
more popular than those of past seasons: bigger, longer and even

Yang Jing (teacher): In my opinion, the authorities should punish teenage cyclists (骑自行车者) who turn a blind eye to traffic rules. Some students ride bicycles in the fast lane; some carry others on the back of their bicycles; some even ride arm in arm! They are not only disregarding (忽视) their own safety, but also others'.
Guan Wen (student): Many students cycle to school.To get there on time, the students try to overtake (超过) others, no matter what colour the traffic lights are. I think lessons should be given at middle schools to make students aware(意识) of the need for self-protection, and to help them to be self-controlled. Ming Tian (student): In my hometown, there are many motorcycles. From dawn until dark, the motorcyclists ride down the streets very fast without considering the safety of others. We teenagers are afraid of being knocked down by them on our way home or to school. Can't the government pass a law to stop them from doing this?
Liu Qingfeng (driver): I think it is unfair to require drivers to take charge in traffic accidents, even when it isn't the driver's fault. Many traffic accidents are caused by pedestrians (行人) who break traffic rules, such as not using zebra crossings or entering fast lanes. I hope nationwide rules will be set up to free drivers of responsibility (责任) in such accidents.
Liu Shihao (student): In my opinion, both drivers and pedestrians should observe (遵守) traffic rules. Cyclists should ride in bicycle lanes. Pedestrians should watch out for vehicles and refrain (避免) from jaywalking (走路不遵守交通规则). All in all, it's everyone's responsibility to help reduce traffic accidents.
