Going to Johar Market

My mother and I went shopping to Pasar Johar Market last Sunday. We took a bus at 8 a.m. and got there at 10 a.m.
We went to the fruit section. We bought two kilograms of guavas and three papayas. After that, we went to the fish section to buy two kilograms of fresh fish. Then we went to the fashion shop to buy dresses for my sister.
Pasar Johar was very hot at that time. I felt so thirsty, so I asked my mother to have some drink at a small food stall nearby.
We went home at 11 a.m. by a taxi because we had to go to our family in Semarang.

Tracy's Experience

On the way to the bus stop yesterday, Tracy slipped on wet leaves and hurt her foot. Some people helped her stand up. Then, she went home. Her mother was surprised at that time. And then her mother took her to the hospital.
In the hospital, her mother parked the car in NO PARKING area and then she helped her daughter walk to the doctor. It wasn’t a serious accident, but it was very expensive. The X-ray, ice treatment, and bandage cost $320.
After that Tracy and her mother went back to their car. There was a traffic police officer near their car. He gave her a ticket. The fine was $80. Then, on the way home, Tracy’s mother hit a telephone pole. It cost $500 to fix it. Finally they went home and they were very tired.

Albert Einstein (2)

Albert Einstein was born near the end of the 1800s in Ulf, Germany. He graduated from the University of Zurich in Switzerland at age 26. That was also when he did his famous work in physics. Fourteen years later he won the Nobel Prize for Physics.
For the next ten years he lived in Germany and traveled a lot to talk to other scientists. Then in the early 1930s he had to leave Germany because of Hitler and the Nazi party. He moved to the United States. From that time until his death he lived in Princeton, New Jersey. He died at the age of 74.
