It was the best holiday ever! It took four days to climb
to the top of the mountain and I was very tired when

beautiful than the photos you see on TV! At first it was
quiet because there weren’t many people around. I’ve
got lots of wonderful photos to show you. Then the
train arrived, and it got much busier and noisier with
lots of tourists!
Maria: I loved Shanghai! It’s the largest city in China
with a population of 19 million. We stayed in a hotel in
the old part of the city, and saw the more traditional
houses. Then we visited the newer part of the city and
climbed the Oriental Pearl Tower. When I was there, this
was the tallest building in Shanghai, but now there’s
an even taller one! And I bought lots of clothes. They
were much cheaper than in London, and are all famous
designer names!

stay at home if it’s wet, cold, and windy. You have to go
out and run.’
Earlier this year, Safia won a place in the team to go
to the World Championships in New Zealand. Her
trainer expected her to do very well. However, Safia fell
over the week before the race and couldn’t travel. ‘I
was disappointed, but I’m definitely going to run next
year.’
