We went from Changi Airport to Danang, Vietnam. On the way we are very excited, and my friends on the plane happy chat. About eight o’clock we arrived at the Vietnam airport and then bus back to our hotel to eat.
the next day
I personally think that the next day is the most fortunate day in the past few days, we planted trees in the morning to weave mats in the afternoon. In the morning, we arrived in a village by boat, in front of the muddy path and short bungalows. I think I was back to childhood, a child my grandma grandpa like to take me to the countryside wandering, I like to adopt wild chrysanthemums and friends, humming, walking in the country on the road. In fact, apart from where the house is built with bamboo, vegetation and we are not the same, China’s rural and rural Vietnam is really exactly the same.
Then the teacher gave us the distribution of seedlings, each with three saplings. At that time there had just been rain, so the road is mud, take a short while, my pants on the dirty. Finally we arrived at a room, rest for a while we continue to move forward. It was unfortunate that when I got those saplings, the bags with the saplings were broken. No way, I can only hand holding the sapling to go, but more unfortunately, we are going to the furthest of the house, so I put up with pants dirty, try to hand the seedlings do not let them down Down, so that when the arrival of my hands have been shaking. At that time near noon, the air is very hot. Everyone persists and persists to plant the trees in their hands. At that moment my mood is near the edge of collapse, but when I see each time we plant trees to the next one, everyone smiles at us. Thank you, to see their smile I think we do so the whole is worth it!
Afternoon we finished weaving mats, the boat back and then take a bus to go to a lively old city of Hoi An dinner. This world down, I think with a Chinese saying pain and happiness.
The third day
We went to the marble hill. We visit under the marble in the morning, in the afternoon to experience the decline in marble. The morning is boring just take a look, walk, the most exciting is the afternoon. We arrived at noon when they return to the experience of marble on the decline, I listen to my friends that is not intimidating, then I really want to experience the afternoon when I really want to break ties. See below do not feel anything, from the top down to see how high. I was the third go, I am very afraid, but told myself to be brave.
I slowly stepped on the rock, but the foot accidentally slipped, I was scared and the man said I do not want to go on, I would like to wait a while and then down, then I heard the top class refueling hazel, you must Yes. The man asked me not to try again, I firmly said I want! Later, I do not know how I came down, I think I really did break through the self! When I was a child my mother always did not let me do some dangerous activities, insecurity, so it makes me feel dangerous movement of exclusion, and this time I tried, I really did it! Heart is very excited.
After we went down the Hoi An old city, all groups have to play a game called Gandalf hunting. Means that each group has a list, we have to according to the contents of the list in the town to find the corresponding things and some things to buy some things as long as there is a photo can be. This is the most interesting activity of the past few days, because it is not only to test the eyes of each team member but also to test the team’s team work, we can not fall any one person. We turned around in the town for about two hours and found a lot of things. Then we finished our dinner and went back to the hotel.
The fourth day
We went again to the village by boat. In the morning we went to the wall, the owner of the small house is a thin Vietnamese grandmother. The house is very small, the equivalent of a classroom so much. The house has about three doors and four windows. Began to work, and I was assigned to a small room to brush the wall, the room put on the bed seemed very crowded, can only accommodate six people around. The room only a small window, but there are breeze blowing slowly, so that the hearts of several restless calm down.
After lunch, we went to catch fish, this is the first time I catch fish, and friends are to go fishing, I am very excited! We came to the other end of the pond, to be down to the pond there is a small slope, so many people are afraid of slipping and splashing a water. It does not matter, everything had to try, and some girls leaning on a carefully down, and some bold boys jumped directly into the pond, I saw a sudden splash of a huge spray, to see all the body, but And did not come again and again scold sound, but happy laughter.
We pulled a big fishnet from one side of the fish pond to the other side, and then back from the other side. Sometimes we will step on a deep pit, and sometimes the water in the pond will be cold from the warm, cold from warming. After we landed there are people very much like the Hawthorn, so the swimming competition. Although everyone is wet to go back, but everyone’s faces are hung with a bright smile.
In the evening we went to a Vietnamese musical performance and learned how to play them. Ha ha ha I think this is really good fun ah!
The fifth day
In the morning we did clay sculpture. An old grandmother taught us how to squeeze clay, she did the first animal is a horse, but she did it is too fast, I have not picked up the mud she had already done. Then she did the second animal is the tortoise, this time, I followed her to do, and soon a small turtle to do out. We finished the lantern, I saw a lot of beautiful lanterns hanging on the production workshop, ha ha ha I followed a lantern to do the ladies out of my own lanterns. Small but very delicate, very beautiful.
Afternoon we went to the camping place, camping place near the sea, as long as the next staircase is the beach, we take the tents after the grouping to play the game. We need to repair bicycles, and bicycles and some small parts need to get through the game. So in the concerted efforts of everyone, a bike was finally repaired! These bikes are going to donate to the kids and I’m happy that this game can help them.
We had a bonfire in the evening, and each group had a show. Our teacher, Mr Kenndy, thought for a long time and decided to sing a song. In fact, I have never heard of this song, but sing a few times will be so a little lyrics. Our first performance, we only sing twice before the song we are not nervous, but the effect is extraordinary, so after all the performances we performed again. After we roasted cotton candy to eat, sweet taste filled in the mouth, and my heart sweet.
The sixth day
Morning I got up very early exception, so after washing do not know what to do. One of my friends suggested that I could go to the beach. We went to the beach and look to the distance, the horizon and the sea together into one, in the setting sun shine, the waves seemed sparkling, like water covered with a layer of shiny silver, like crumpled Green satin. The far right of the top of the mountain is covered with hazy clouds, like fairyland general. We walked along the beach and the sea junction. This is my first time in the sunset under the sea walk.
After playing the game in the morning, I looked at the sea there and saw a group of children playing at the beach, they stepped on the water, running, jumping, the air rippling their exquisite laughter, their smile like a blossoming Warm little sun, warm my heart, how I want to guard their smile ah.
In the afternoon we went to the airport after supper. For this six-day painting on the perfect full stop, this wonderful experience I will never forget. These days we can insist on completing each task, happy to participate in every game, sincere treatment of every friendly villagers, I think we are great! Come on!
