Answer

A Trekking Journa

November 12, 1997

Today (be) is the second day of my trek around Mount Annapurna.

I am exhausted and my legs (shake) are shaking ; I just hope I

am able to complete the trek. My feet (kill, really) are really

killing me and my toes (bleed) are bleeding, but I (want, still)

still want to continue.

Nepal is a fascinating country, but I have a great deal to learn.

Everything (be) is so different, and I (try) am trying to adapt to

the new way of life here. I (learn) am learning a little bit of the

language to make communication easier; unfortunately, I (learn,

not) don't learn foreign languages quickly. Although I (understand,

not) don't understand much yet, I believe that I (improve,

gradually) am gradually improving.

I (travel, currently) am currently travelling with Liam, a student

from Leeds University in England. He (be) is a nice guy, but

impatient. He (walk, always) is always walking ahead of me and

(complain) complains that I am too slow. I (do) am doing my

best to keep up with him, but he is younger and stronger than I am.

Maybe, I am just feeling sorry for myself because I am getting old.

Right now, Liam (sit) is sitting with the owner of the inn. They

(discuss) are
discussing the differences between life in England and life in

Nepal. I (know, not) don't know the real name of the owner. Tam

(speak) speaks English very well and he (try) is trying to teach

Liam some words in Nepali. Every time Tam (say) says a new word,

Liam (try) tries to repeat it. Unfortunately,Liam (seem, also) also

seems to have difficulty learning foreign languages. I just hope we

don't get lost and have to ask for directions.

A trip to London

Last week I drove to London by car. As there was an accident on


the M25 I had to take a diversion. I stopped in front of a theatre
to ask for directions. A young man told me to turn right at the
crossroads and ask again at the petrol station. There a friendly
shop assistant told me to take the second exit of the
roundabout. After I had passed a zebra crossing I saw a
bookshop and a large car park. I parked my car there and walked
to the centre of London
