Last summer I went to Miami Beach, Florida, where I stayed for two weeks. My friend John and I flew to Miami from New York in three hours. It was the first time for both of us to travel by air. We settled back in deep armchairs and enjoyed an unusual and breathtaking (使人吃惊的，非凡的) view (视野，景色) of the world. We went there because the rates were lower (较低的，降低) out of season. We stayed at a hotel on the beach. We slept late every morning and then had breakfast outdoors near the pool. When the weather was not too hot, we used to go sightseeing (观光，游览) in the morning. We visited the campus (校园) of the University of Miami, and the Everglades. In the afternoon, we used to go swimming in the ocean or the pool, lie in the sun, or go water-skiing. After dinner in the evening, we used to go dancing in a discotheque or enjoy ourselves in the night clubs. The weather was very good every day, and the two weeks went by only too quickly. We were both very sorry when we had to leave.

A United Nations' report says Asian countries are facing major environmental problems. The report released in Bangkok said that parts of China, India, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan are threatened by man-made and natural events that turn productive (有收获的) land into deserts. It said the most serious threat to the area is the rapid shrinking of Asia's rain forests, or woods, especially in Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. The report said the reduction (减少) in wood areas has already led to increased flooding, water-shortages in the dry seasons and the loss of farm lands. A top U.N. official said that as much as 70% of the woods in Asia will be gone in 20 years unless actions are taken now to save them.

Now, you want to know about life in the past. Right? I can tell you. When I was a boy, things were different. I had to get up at six every morning. That was not very bad in summer, but in winter it was cold. And we didn't have any hot water in the house. We had to wash in cold water. We didn't have a bathroom. My dad had some chickens. I had to feed them every morning and then I had to walk to school with my little sister. It was two miles to school and two miles back in the evening. But it always seemed longer in the morning when we were going to school. There was a bus, but we didn't have the money. And we had to go to bed at seven o'clock every night. We couldn't watch TV because there wasn't any. On Sundays we had to go to church three times — morning, afternoon and evening. And we couldn't play outside on Sundays. But it wasn't all bad. We had some good times. We could go out and our parents didn't have to worry about us. There weren't so many cars on the roads then, so the streets were safe to play in. And there were not many robbers and thieves in those days. We had to work hard and we weren't able to buy all those things in the shops today. Life was hard, but it was simple and people were happier. I don't think I'd like to be young today.
