20. A Visit to Asia
Liz was excited. She was going to Asia
her mom. Neither of them had ever traveled
of the United States before. They were going
fly to Hong Kong. After staying in Hong
for three nights, they would travel on their
ship to Shanghai and Beijing.
"Beijing is inland,
we have to take about a two-hour bus
to get there from the port. I forget
name of the port. Anyway, we're going to
the Great Wall, the Tiananmen Square, and the
City. It’s going to be so cool!" she
her neighbor Jane.
From China, the cruise ship
go to Pusan in South Korea, and finally
Tokyo. From Tokyo, they would catch a flight
to Los Angeles.
"The trip is going to
three weeks. It's only going to
us $2,800 each, IF we can control our urge to
," she laughed.
"I hope your trip is more
than mine was," said Jane. "I took a
to the Bahamas, but almost all the passengers
sick. I caught some kind of virus that
me throw up for almost three days. They
us a discount that we could use on
future trip. Ha! No more cruising for me."
've heard about those disasters," said Liz. "Mom and
are going to be washing our hands every
minutes, and we're bringing surgical masks with us."
