P. 1 Peru is such a fascinating country. We spent the first week with Pablo’s family, getting used to the altitude, and then a few days hiking in the Andes. The scenery is beautiful. Now we’re back in Cuzco again, and our feet are getting the vacation they need.
Last year I went to Tibet with my friend. I was shocked when I reached there. The sky was so blue and the clouds so white, and the scenery was so attracting! I thought it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to. Although the air was very thin, I soon got used to it. For a few days, we visited several places of interest there, among which the Potala palace gave me the deepest impression. I still remember clearly the day we went to the Palace. It was cloaked in a mantle of sunlight, which made it more splendid. It cost us almost three hours to visit the palace, but there still left somewhere we did not have enough time to have a look. It is a great pity in my trip to Tibet.
Please read Lesson 2, and try to find sentences with superlative of adj. & those with rejoinders showing interest or surprise.
Well, let’s look at the text of Lesson 2 carefully.
A Just fine, thanks. What’s new (with sb.)? -Well, I’m not working at the bank anymore. -You aren’t? I’ve decided to go back to school to get my master’s degree in economics.
A Did you do anything special over the summer? I’ll really got to run, but I’d like to hear more about your plans.
B -We visited …-You did? How was it? It was one of the nicest vacations we’ve ever taken. -You’ve never been to…, haven’t you? - No, but I’ve always wanted to go.
C As a matter of fact, … -Oh, I’ve read Clancy’s latest book, the one that just came out as a movie. -You have? That’s the one I’m reading now.
C I thought it was O.K., but to tell you the truth, I didn’t think it was that exciting.
Find another way to say it. What did you think of it? I think it’s exciting, don’t you? I agree that it’s exciting.
Find another way to say it. I’m surprised you’re not. It was a great vacation. I have to go now.

Lesson 7 Inca Art Inca These pictures show artifacts used in ceremonial sacrifices of some pre Inca cultures in the Peruvian Coastal Region. They can be attributed to the Mochica- Chimu cultures, and they are not exactly Inca.
What makes the Inca Trail a magnet for hikers from all over the world? Many countries have mountain ranges with beautiful scenery and Peru itself is richly blessed in this respect with many other areas for hiking. However the scenery is only one of the elements responsible for the magic of the Inca Trail. Can there be any walk anywhere in the world with such a combination of natural beauty, history and sheer mystery and with such an awe-inspiring destination? The various ruins along the way serve to heighten the hiker's sense of anticipation as he or she approaches what would surely find a place in any new list of archaeological wonders of the world - Machu Picchu
We weren't the only ones who wanted to be there early. Spending the night in Aguas Calientes, we were able to arrive at Machu Picchu before the throngs of tourists arrived from Cuzco.
