more and more people traveling by air

More and more people traveling by air
More and more people are traveling by air. I think the reasons why people are starting to travel by air is because it is more convenient ,faster, safer than other ways.
As Koreans , everyone has experience of traffic jam. Traffic jams is a big annoyance and it exert a bad influence on people when they have meetings. If people are traveling by car they usually have traffic jams so traffic jams are the big reason why more people are traveling by air. Also airplanes are the most comfortable way to travel . If you travel by car for long time, it is not comfortable . Maybe you will tired but if you travel by airplane, you can listen to music and watch movies while you are traveling . Also, you can sleep comfortably.
Second reason why more and more people are traveling by airplanes are faster than other travel by car and train . For example, if you go to Busan from Seoul by bus , it will take about 6 hours by trains (KTX) it will take about two hours and 50 minutes. Buses and trains take such a long time but, if you go to Busan from Seoul , I take just 55 minutes. Airplane is faster than other ways.
Fnally, my last reason why more and more people are traveling by air is because it is safer than other ways. For example, car accident percentage is 21.85%. That is very high percent but airplane accident percentage is just 0.1%. That percent is very low than car accident percent.
nce airplanes are faster, more comfortable, and safer, it becoming more and more popular every day.

More of the world's forests are being cut down

More of the world's forests are being cut down
More of the world's forests are being cut down. People use a lot of trees for different purposes. People use trees for paper. Most of people use paper, so many countries cut down the forests to make paper. People also want land for cities and farms.
Canada is the best exporting pulp country in the world. Paper industry of Canada is increasing their earnings. In 2001, they exported three million tons of pulp. Most people use paper and need it. Paper is made of pulp, and pulp is made of trees. So, people have to cut down a lot of trees. Canada's forests are being cut down, U.S.A, Sweden and Finland's forests are being cut down,too.
A lot of forests occupy some countries, so they want develop cities. They want to cut down the forests, and to improve land. For example, Amazon forests occupy a lot of area in Brazil. So, Brazil want to cut down Amazon forest and develop cities. If Brazil cuts Amazon forest, the world will have big problems. The air will decrease and world will have many environment problems. But Brazil needs more land for industry or farms. Some people want to build roads and buildings so, they will cut down the forests.
People needs food. People must eat food to live. But some countries' food is not enough. So, a lot of people starve. They cut down forests to make farms.
People use trees for many purposes. People needs papers and land for cities and farms. Forests have given us lots of thing and more of the world's forests are being cut down

Many people are wearing mask

Many people are wearing masks

These days people wear masks a lot. People wearing masks for different purpose. These days most big three purpose are to prevent H1N1 flu, the cold weather, and to protect from dirt.
So many people have the H1N1 flu and it is contagious so people should prevent against the H1N1 flu. In the world, 300,000 people have had the H1N1 flu, and 3,000 people have died from it. In Korea, 10,000 people have had the H1N1 flu. 40 people died because the H1N1 flu. But the normal flu is more dangerous than the H1N1 flu because 4,000 people have died from the normal flu, but only 3,000 people have died from the H1N1 flu.
Why are many people wearing masks? The second reason is the weather. The weather is so cold so we should prevent the cold air from going into the lungs. People should protect the face from the wind and make the face warm.
The final reason is to protect from dirt. For example, people should protect the lungs from flying dust, to protect the face from spit or to protect body from viruses. Dust is bad for your health.

My lifeguard

My lifeguard

In spring, 2004, I went a trip because of kindergarten named Wonderland. I went swimming with my friends and some teachers. I think teachers choose a very nice day because that day was very hot and sunny. Sweat dropped at my face, my friends faces and teacher's faces.

We went to the swimmingpool because it was hot all week so we looked so tired. Teachers said to go to the swimmingpool. We felt like flying on the sky. We went to the with our swimsuits. Some friends colud not to go to the house because the house was so far. However it was okay. They borrowed the teacher's money and rent swimsuit at the swimmingpool. We swam a lot. We rode the tube slide. It was fun. I rode this slide many times. My friends liked it too.

My lifeguard is Jenny. She taught my class and some other classes. I was her pupil. She was very nice to me. She had a nice voice and beautiful brown hair. When she smiled, she looked like an angel and she could do almost anything. I liked her very much and I am thankful to her. She saved my life at the swimmingpool. Have you any experienced someone saved your life? If you have maybe you would be very thankful to them.
Jenny was my teacher and I am her pupil. She was my teacher in kindergarten named Wonderland too. She taught me many things. For example she taught English, making some new things, interesting chants, some English vocabulary, and a little Korean. She taught it interesting so I could learn more easily. I think she knew what was interesting to kids. Maybe she had still at it. I liked her teaching skill, too. She really liked kids. When I grow up, will kids think liked them?
At swimmingpool me and my friends were swimming and playing together. We had a swimming battle so we were swimming very eagerly. It was a reason for the accident. All of my friends were swimming so eagerly so they splashed a lot of water for me. I could not watch. I was wearing goggles but there are so much water splashing so i could not watch. At that time, I lost my balance and fell into the water. I was so scared.
Jenny was my lifeguard. She saw me fell into water and she pulled me out of water. When I came out of water, I cried a lot but not too loudly. In the afternoon my friends and I arrived to their home and ate lunch. I ate lunch with my family but I ate so little, my parents were worried about me. Still I was very surprise and tired so I fell sleep.
If I have chance to meet her again, I want to say thank again and again. I really want to meet her someday.

Kyeong- Ju
Kyeong-Ju is the most famous and popular tourist city in Korea. I have beene Kyeong-Ju two times . It was fun and I felt interesting there. There are many beautiful and interesting things in Kyeong-Ju , maybe that is why Kyeong-Ju is the most famous and popular tourist city.
Silla is one country. Also Kyeong-Ju has cultures of Silla.
Kyeong-Ju is in Gyeongsangbuk-do. Kyeong-Ju has many stories of Silla, also it has many cultural sites of Silla. Kyeong-Ju has so much history of Silla so, if Kyeong-Ju was not there, people could not know about many history of Silla. Kyeong-Ju was the capital city of Silla. Silla's royal family lived at Kyeong-Ju so some the ruins of a castle left in there. Kyeong-Ju has many funny and strange stories.
There are many cultural sites at Kyeong-Ju, for example Silla king's tomb Chunmachong , famous temple Bulguksa, beautiful cave Seokguram. My favorite cultural sites was Bulguksa. Bulguksa is the most famous and popular temple in South Korea. It is big and beautiful. There are many statuees of Buddha and two famous towers in bulguksa. Dabo tower and Sukga tower are in bulguksa. Dabo tower picture is on 10 coin. Many people think Sukga tower is like a women, Dado tower is like man. Dabo tower is more splendid than Sukga tower. Dabo tower and Sukga tower are both beautiful and nice. Near Bulguksa, Sakguram is like a cave.
It is peaceful and beautiful place. There is a big statue of Buddha in Seokguram. That buddha is white. When people look at image of Buddha , they can feel so peaceful. It was really clean before Japanese controled Korea. At that time Japanese took the jewel from Buddha 's head. They made it very awful. There are many statues behind the image of Buddha , They are very nice and cool. In the middle of Kyeong-Ju, Chunmachong is Silla king's tomb. I also like Chunmachong too. It is very big. Silla king's tomb is very different from other countries king's tomb , It is very big.
It is also wide too. It is as high as 2nd floor. People found king's crowns,
bracelets and a picture of horse in Cunmachong. Many other cultural assets are at Kyeong-Ju I like all the sites what I visit.
Kyeong-Ju is a very good place to travel. It is nice, beautiful, and cool.
I have been to Kyeong-Ju two times. I really want to recommend visiting Kyeong-Ju with your family.

I am amazed at Hwa-seong because it is so big and tall. It is very hard to see all of Hwa-seong. There are so many things to look and so big. But I like Hwa-seong because I respect Jeong -joe.
Jeong-joe was king in Joe-seon, one of the countries long ago. He finished building Hwa-seong in 1800. Do you know why he built Hwa-seong? He built Hwa-seong because he wanted to move his father's grave. Hwa-seong is a castle that defended the kingdom from enemies. He wanted to make it bigger. It was one of his dreams.
Hwa-seong is in Suwon. Suwon is in gyeonggi-do. Hwa-seong is a symbolof Suwon. Many people go Suwon to visit and to see Hwa-seong. If you pay,anyone can enter this historical and educational place. Circumference of Hwa-seong is 5,744m, and it width is maybe 390,000 pyeong. It is like a castle on a hill. It is good for learning history. Jeong-joe really wanted to move his father's tomb. Hwa-seong is big and tall so people who do not know historythink many people worked to build Hwa-seong . However Jeong-jak-yoeung, a scientist, made a machine called Geo-joong-gi. It was very comfortable to buildHwa-seong so this machine was important at that time. It helped Hwa-seong to be finished fast.
As you enter, if you go left you can see little Hwa-seong. Sometimes you can take Hwa-seong freight train there. If you go by train or on foot you can see Hwa-se-moon, Jang-an-moon, Chang-ryong-moon, and Pal-dal-moon. They are four big doors. You can see Hwa-seong in this order too. Jeong-joe rested at Hwa-seong for a long time. Hwa-seong is so big and tall so it is busy and loud.
After hundreds of years, the Hwa-seong remains a historical place. I felt Jeong-joe loved his father very much so I will respect my parents more and love them more than jeong-joe. I think jeong-jak-yoeung always thought of people first and helped people very much. He was a wise and smart scientist. Hwa-seong is a good place to learn history.
