Jack: He’s really hard-working, but very much a loner. He’s pretty talented and can do just about anything.

Paul: Sounds interesting. How old is he?

Jack: He is fifteen.

Paul: What does he look like? Maybe my friend Alice would be interested in meeting him.

Jack: He’s tall, slim and quite good looking. I’m sure your friend would find him attractive. What’s she like?

Paul: She’s cheerful and very athletic.

Jack: Really? What sports does she like playing?

Paul: She’s a great tennis player and also goes bicycling a lot.

Jack: What does she look like?

Paul: She’s kind of exotic looking. She’s got long dark hair and piercing black eyes. People think she is rather beautiful.

A Trip to the Past

One of the best summer holiday trips I’ve ever made was when my friends and I were still students. We hiked the old wagon trail road to California and camped along the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

We decided to travel like the first pioneers did and explore life as it was 120 years ago. The inspiration came from our teacher. He made us read books such as “The Journals of Lewis and Clark”, who were the first Americans employed by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the continental United States and find a way to California.

We did research on the technology and equipment available 120 years ago, and then made an agreement not to take anything invented after the year 1870 except very good maps. We chose the year 1870 because by then people had discovered tinned food which could keep the five of us from starving. But just in case we took some fishing rods to catch fresh Rocky Mountain fish!

We left on a sunny day in late June. We were prepared for many possible situations - we knew it gets cold at night and that it’s hard to find firewood in the dark. There were no hot showers for us at the end of the day and we could hear strange sounds at night.

One night we saw a mountain lion, the next day it snowed in the middle of the night, and then when the snow melted there was mud everywhere.

After about a week we got to California - tired but happy that we could be so close to nature. We enjoyed all the fresh air, sleeping under the stars and swimming and fishing in fresh water lakes. It was hard to go back to our school desks - we wanted to return to the year 1870!

1. The friends went on a trip because of the teacher.

2. They didn’t investigate life in California.

3. They chose the year 1870 because they could take some tins with them.

4. They didn’t know what to expect in the mountains.

5. They experienced different weather conditions.

6. They were happy to go back to school.
