something unpleasant happened to us on our way to the beach.
in the morning, while we were waiting to buy train tickets in the railway station, a bus driver came over to us. he told us he also was going to the beach, the ride was cheap, and the bus was air-conditioned. we felt grateful and got on his bus. as we were talking happily on the way, the bus suddenly stopped. the driver said he needed two hours to repair the engine. while he was working on the engine, he turned off the air-conditioner. he actually took four hours to finish his job, and we spent the whole morning sweating in the heat!精彩内容，尽在百度攻略：http://gl.baidu.com
i am an active boy and i talk more than listen. when i talk with my friends, i’m always ready to express myself. i’m not afraid to tell others what i think. i am usually the focus of the attention because i often have lots of ideas that interest everyone. in my opinion, people should share and exchange each other’s ideas. but when i am with the quiet people i feel the air is frozen. i’m always trying to find a topic and start a conversation. in this way, people will like me and feel happy.
in a word, i am optimistic and active and i can make everybody as confident as me.精彩内容，尽在百度攻略：http://gl.baidu.com

diet is very important in people’s life. from 1986 to 1990, people’s diet changed a lot. grain was no longer regarded as the main food. and as the proportion(比例) of fruit and vegetable declined, the consumption of milk and meat increased.
what caused these changes? there are two reasons. one is that with the development of science, people began to realize the importance of maintaining a balanced diet. the other is that people had more money to spend and could afford more expensive food. they tried to change their low-priced diet into a more varied one. they were eager to build up a strong body by improving their living standards.
with the development of our economy and improvement of our food supply, further changes will take place in people’s diet.精彩内容，尽在百度攻略：http://gl.baidu.com
