Fabrice asked them to send money to a medical research organisation. In this way, he raised a lot of money for important medical research.
Between stops, he travelled 100 kilometres on good days. But there were also bad days and problems: bad weather, broken skates, dangerous drivers, snakes on the roads in Mexico, and a wolf attack in Mongolia. However, none of these problems stopped him, and he wants to do another trip.

In 2003, 14-year-old Jenna spoke to a journalist
about moving to Spain.
“I've only been a Beckham fan for a few
years but my dad always loved seeing him play
at Manchester United. It took him ten hours to
get there by car from Cornwall! Mum also
follows Becks now. When she and I heard he
was leaving to play in Spain, I said,?Let's move
At first we didn't know if Becks would play
for Barcelona or Madrid, so my parents bought a place in Alicante. It's only about three hours away from both cities. Our new home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms on one floor, and there's a flat with another two bedrooms and bathrooms under that. There's a pool, too.
My friends in England will come and visit for my birthday in February. They think I'm a bit mad but they're pleased for learned French in England and I keep mixing the two. It'll be easier when I start at my new school.
Becks is playing up really well in Spain, which keeps my dad happy!What I love most about him is that he's a big family man. Being famous hasn't changed him. I'm having a great time in Spain and I'd really like to meet Becks one day.”
63. Who had the idea of moving to Spain?
64. Why did Jenna's family buy a new house in Alicante at
Dan Shaw is blind. When he walks down the street,
stare at him. They look at him because he has Cuddles. Cuddles is his guide horse. She is a miniature horse. In fact, Cuddles is only 26 inches high!
Sometimes, blind people have guide dogs to help them. However, some blind people don't like dogs. They may be afraid of dogs. They may be allergic（对……过敏） to dogs. Now, they can have guide horses instead.
Dan Shaw was the first person to have a guide
horse. Cuddles helps him a lot. Guide horses are very
small, but they are very strong. One day, Dan and
Cuddles were on a busy street. Suddenly, a bicycle
came towards them. Cuddles used her strong body.
She pushed Dan out of the way. The horses have
good memories, too. Cuddles can remember how to
go to different places with Dan, such as the grocery
store or the post office.
Miniature horses live a long time. Some miniature
horses live for about 40 years. Most dogs only live for about 15 years. Guide horses do not have to live inside, like dogs do. They can live outside, but they need a home with a big backyard. This is because they eat a lot of grass.
Many blind people want guide horses like Cuddles. Right now, there are only a few, but soon, there will be more.
65. What helps Dan Shaw cross the street?
66. What advantages （长处） does Cuddles have?
67. Why do the guide horses need a home with a big backyard?
“I'll have cucumber sandwiches, crumpets, scones with jam and cream, a slice of Dundee cake and a pot of Earl Grey tea, please. But no sugar—I'm on a diet.” Many people say such things in English tea shops.
In England, tea is not just a drink, it's a meal as well. In some homes it's the last meal of the day, although for many people it's a light meal between lunch and dinner. But most working people don't have time for a proper tea.
Most tea shops serve tea between three and five in the afternoon, although the most popular time is around four o'clock. So an English tea is great for people on holiday who have the time to enjoy it. Why not try a typical English tea in Oxford? After a long day visiting the romantic city, here are some tea shops to visit.
The Randolph Hotel in Beaumont Street is in the very centre of the city. It's a fine Victorian building and offers the best traditions of English teatime, with piano music in the background.
The Nosebag in St Michael's Street is popular with university students. Excellent homemade cakes and a good choice of teas are available （可得到的） but go early as there are always long queues.
The Wykeham Coffee Shop in Holywell Street is a small tea shop opposite New College, and is popular with tourists and students.
George's Café in the Covered Market is popular with market workers
Queen's Lane Coffee House on the High Street is one of the oldest restaurants in Oxford, and despite its name, serves excellent teas, and also has a choice of newspapers.
68. This passage is about teatime and ________ in Oxford, England.
69. In addition to （除了） drinking tea, people can listen to ________ in the Randolph Hotel and eat ________ in the Nosebag.
70. Two tea shops are very popular with students. One is the Nosebag, and the other is ________.
