on the roads and banging the drums
Besides, children ate a very special cake called Moon Cakes. They are filled with
lotus seed, orange peel., ground bean and sometimes egg and pork fat for flavor

Dear Tim
How are you ? I was very happy to get your letter 2 weeks ago. I have just finished
my exams and did it quite well
My class has just come back from a trip to Phong Nha cave, a world Heritage Site
in central Viet Nam. It’s about 500km from Ha Noi and took us 10 hours to get
there by train. We stayed in Dong Hoi City for one night before the wonderful trip
to Phong Nha Cave started.
The next day, we got up very early and went to Phong Nha cave. We did lots of
things but one we enjoyed most is the guided tour into the Big Cave. Although it’s
a summer day, it’s very cold and dark inside. The guide showed us the history of
the limestone which made such magnificent caves. We took many photographs
with local people there.
We came back to the hotel in Dong Hoi in the afternoon. We swam in Nhat Le
beach. It was really fantastic. The water is clear and the sand is smooth.
We felt very happy after the trip. I enclose a photo that I took during the trip. I
hope you like it
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon
