A。 letter to a Schoolmate
J。une 23, 2001
Dear Xiao Wang,
I am delighted to kno。w that you will be abl。e to v。isit me f。or。 a week during the National Day holiday. I am looking for。ward to。 your visit and to the opportunity to catch up. Welcome to my home in Nanjing!
As you know, N。anjing has many places of interest。 to see, to discover, and to enjoy. Among its historical sites are stone city wall, the Confucius。 Temple with its magnificent night view, and Dr. Sun Yets。en's Mausol。eum. With all its universities, Nanjing is a cultura。l center, offering an abundanc。e of artistic and musical performances. It's also a c。ity of b。eautiful gardens and parks, such as the Xuanwu Lake Park. With all these features, we will have a fun-filled week, e。specially that in early-October, there are m。any sunny and mild days for outdoor activities. So, I would suggest visiting these places first, and deciding on the others as our week develops.
Fina。lly, s。ince at this time of the year the weather gets a litt。le chilly in the eveni。ng, I w。o。uld suggest th。at you bring some warm clothin。g with you. A。lso, as there will be crowds of people at the stations and on the trains, yo。u need to be ver。y careful with you。r belongings!
B。est wish。es fo。r a pleasant journey!
