第一天

我们从樟宜机场出发去到了越南的岘港。这一路上我们十分的激动,我和朋友们在飞机上开心的聊天。大概晚上八点左右我们到达了越南机场然后车大巴送我们回酒店吃饭。

第二天

我个人认为第二天是这几天中最幸苦的一天,我们早上去种树,下午去编织草席。早上我们坐船到达了一个村庄,映入眼前是泥泞的小路和矮小的平房。我当时觉得我回到了童年,小时候我的姥姥姥爷喜欢带着我往农村转悠,我喜欢和朋友们采着野菊花,哼着歌,走在乡间的小路上。实际上,除了那里的房子是用竹子建的,植被和我们不一样,中国的农村和越南的农村真的是一模一样。

接下来老师给我们分发树苗,每人拿三棵树苗。当时那里刚刚下过雨,所以路上都是泥巴,走了不一会,我的裤子就脏了。终于我们到达了一个屋子,休息了一会我们继续往前走。十分不幸的是我当时拿到那些树苗时,装树苗的袋子是破的。没办法,我只能用手托着树苗走,但是更加不幸的是,我们要去的是最远的那一个屋子,所以我忍着裤子的肮脏,努力用手托着树苗不让它们倒下,以至于到达的时候,我的双手一直在颤抖。当时临近中午,空气十分闷热。所有人都留着汗坚持种完了手中的树,那一刻我的心情是临近崩溃边缘的,可是当我看到当我们每一次种完树前往下一家时,每一家的人都对我们微笑着说谢谢,看到他们的笑容我觉得我们这样做整得是值得的!

下午我们结束编织草席后,坐船回去然后坐大巴去了一个热闹的会安老城去吃晚餐。这一天下来,我觉得用中国的一句话讲叫痛并快乐着。

第三天

我们去到了大理石山。上午我们在大理石下游览,下午去体验大理石上下降。上午很无聊只是看一看,走一走,最激动人心的是下午。我们在快到中午的时候回到了他们体验大理石上下降的地方,我听朋友们说一点也不吓人,后来下午我去真正体验的时候我真想绝交。在下面看不觉得有什么,从上往下看就知道有多高了。我是第三个下去的,我十分害怕,但又告诉自己要勇敢。

我慢慢的踩着岩石下去,但是脚不小心滑了一下,我吓到和那个人说我不想下去了,我想等一会再下去,后来我听到上面的同学说加油hazel,你一定可以的。那个人问我要不要再试一次,我坚定地说我要!后来我也不知道我是怎么下来了,我觉得我真的做到了突破自我!小时候妈妈老是不让我做一些危险的活动,不安全,所以这让我对那些危险的运动产生了排斥感,而这次我尝试了,我真的做到了!心里十分的激动。

我们下山之后去了会安老城,所有小组都要玩一个游戏叫做甘道夫狩猎。意思就是每个小组都有一个清单,我们要根据清单上的内容在小镇里找到相应的东西有的东西是要买的有的东西只要有照片即可。这是我这几天以来最有趣的活动了,因为这不仅是要考验每个小组成员的眼力还要考验小组的团队合作,我们不能落下任何一个人。我们在古镇里转了两个小时左右并且找到了好多东西。之后我们吃完了晚餐,回到了酒店。

第四天

我们坐船再次去到了那个村庄。早上我们去刷墙,那家小房子的主人是一个瘦弱的越南奶奶。房子非常小,相当于一个教室这么大。屋子里大概有三个门,四个窗户。开始干活了,我被分到了一个小房间去刷墙,那个房间放上了床显得十分拥挤,只能容下六个人左右。房间里只有一件小窗户,但是却有徐徐清风吹来,让心中的几份躁动平静了下来。

中午吃完饭后我们去捉鱼,这是我第一次捉鱼,以前都是和朋友们去钓鱼,我十分的激动!大家来到了荷塘另一头,要下到荷塘里还有一个小坡,所以很多人很怕会滑倒并溅起一身水。没关系,凡事都得尝试,有的女生一个扶着一个小心翼翼的下来,有的胆大的男生直接跳进荷塘里,只见一下子就溅起了巨大的水花,见到所有人的身上,不过并没有传来连连的责骂声,而是开心的笑声。

我们拉着一个大鱼网从鱼塘的一边走到另一边,然后从另一边再走回来。有时我们会踩到一块深深的坑里,有时候荷塘里的水会从暖变冷,会从冷变暖。我们上岸后还有人十分喜欢这个荷塘,于是进行了游泳比赛。虽然所有人都是湿着回去的但是每个人脸上都挂着灿烂的笑容。

晚上我们去看了越南乐器演奏的表演并且还学习了如何演奏它们。哈哈哈我觉得这天真的好有趣啊!

第五天

早上我们去做了泥塑。一个老奶奶教我们如何捏泥塑,她做的第一个动物是一只马,不过她做得实在是太快了,我还没拿起泥她就已经做好了。接着她做的第二个动物是乌龟,这次,我跟着她一起做,不一会一只小乌龟就做出来了。做完泥塑我们去做了灯笼,我看到制作工坊上挂着许多漂亮的灯笼,哈哈哈我于是跟着一个做灯笼的女工做出来了我自己的灯笼。小小的但是很精致,十分漂亮。

下午我们去到了晚上要野营的地方,野营的地方靠近大海,只要下个楼梯就是海滩了,我们搭完帐篷后就去分组玩游戏了。我们需要修理自行车,而且自行车还有一些小零件需要通过玩游戏得到。于是在大家的齐心协力下,一辆辆自行车终于修好了!这些自行车是要去捐给那些孩子们的我很开心这次游戏可以帮到他们。

晚上我们有篝火晚会,每个组都要表演一个节目,我们的老师Mr Kenndy想了半天最后决定唱一首歌Riptide。其实我从来没有听过这首歌,但多唱几遍就会那么一点歌词了。我们第一个表演,事先只唱过两遍歌的我们并没有紧张,反而效果非同凡响,所以在所有表演结束后我们又表演了一遍。之后我们一起烤棉花糖吃,甜蜜的味道洋溢在嘴里,心里甜甜的。

第六天

早上我异常起得特别早,于是洗漱完之后不知道该干些什么。我的一个朋友就提议说可以去沙滩上走走。我们走到了沙滩并往远处看,天边与大海连成一片,在夕阳的映照下,海浪显得波光粼粼,像给水面铺上了一层闪闪发光的碎银,又像被揉皱了的绿缎。右边远处的山顶被朦胧的云雾遮着,宛如仙境一般。我们沿着沙滩与大海交界的地方走着。这是我第一次在夕阳下的大海边散步。

上午玩完游戏之后,我望海那里看去,看到一群小孩子在海边玩,他们踩着水花,奔跑着,跳跃着,空气中荡漾着他们玲珑般的笑声,他们的笑容像一朵朵温暖的小太阳,温暖着我的心,我多么想守护他们的笑容啊。

下午我们吃完晚饭便向机场的方向赶去了。为这六天画上了完美的句号,这次美好的经历我永远不会忘记。这几天我们可以坚持完成每一项任务,开心地参加每一次游戏,真诚的对待每一位友好的村民,我觉得我们都很棒!加油!

first day

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!
