Read carefully the following story.


How are you? How was your summer vacation? My family and I went on vacation to Mexico for one week. I had a wonderful time. Mexico is a very beautiful and interesting country. We went to many museums and to many historical places.

I must tell you about a very funny thing that I saw one day at a market in Mexico City. This market had little stands where different objects made out of wood, clay and silver were sold. As we were walking along the sidewalk, we noticed an American couple walking ahead of us. The woman was busy looking at the beautiful things on the shelves. She wasn’t looking where she was walking. All of a sudden, she tripped on a crack in the sidewalk. She slipped, dropped her sunglasses and pocketbook, knocked over two shelves of pottery, and fell into a big pot.

She wasn’t hurt. She climbed out of the pot, and to everyone’s surprise, she began to laugh. Her husband was very upset and began to yell at her. But the more he yelled, the more she laughed. In the meantime, the owner of the stand picked up each piece of pottery, looked at them carefully, and said angrily to the man, “ROTO”(it means broken in Spanish.) Then the owner said in English, “Your wife thinks this is funny, but wait until she sees the bill!” The poor tourists had to pay for all the broken pottery. As we walked away, the man was still yelling at his wife, but she kept laughing at the situation. I thought it was funny too.

When I see you, I will tell you more about our vacation and show you beautiful photos of Mexico.
