Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend one of Spain's most famous carnivals in the city of Cadiz. You can only understand how it is one of the most important carnivals in the world after seeing it for yourself. Literally everybody I saw, of all ages, was extremely fancy-dressed from top to toe, making me feel like I was in a fairy-tale world with singing and dancing all around the city centre.
Almost instantly after stepping off the train in Cadiz, we were filled with joy, as everyone was in high spirits. The number of people walking through the streets playing traditional music filled people with happiness and craziness like I have never seen before. As we wandered around and took in the lively atmosphere, the creativity of some costumes was incredible ! The imagination and effort put into
fancy dress was remarkable. You could really tell that people put a lot oftime and energy into making
some amazing costumes.
Then there were the groups dotted around the city. Old men would be passionately singing some
traditional songs. I could tell they were singing from their heart with excitement. Furthermore, the fact
that I was not able to understand the inside jokes did not matter, as I was surprised by the actions and
expressions they provided. These mini street shows were a true taster of Spanish culture and set me up
for a fun night.

7. What is the author' s attitude to the carnival?
Much meaning can be conveyed, clearly, with our eyes, so it is often said that eyes can speak.
Do you have such kind of experience? In a bus you may look at stranger, but not too long. And if he is sensing that he is being stared at, he may feel uncomfortable. The same in daily life. If you are looked at for more than necessary, you will look at yourself up and down, to see if there is anything wrong with you. If nothing goes wrong, you will feel angry toward other's stare with you that way.
Eyes do speak, right?
Looking too long at someone may seem to be rude and aggressive. But things are different when it comes to stare at the opposite sex. If a man glances at a woman for more than 10 seconds and refuses to remove his gaze, his intentions are obvious, that is, he wishes to attract her attention, to make her understand that he is admiring her.
However, the normal eye contact for two people engaged in conversation is that the speaker will only look at the listener from time to time, in order to make sure that the listener does pay attention to what the former is speaking, to tell him that he is attentive. If a speaker looks at you continuously when speaking, as if he tries to control you, you will feel disconcerted. A poor liar usually exposes himself by looking too long at the victim, since he believes in the false idea that to look straight in the eye is a sign of honest communication. Quite the contrary, in fact, continuous eye contact is confined to lovers only, who will enjoy looking at each other tenderly for a long time, to show affection that words cannot express. Evidently, eye contact should be done according to the relationship between two people and the specific situation.

With its tall buildings and crowded streets, Hong Kong is one of the last places you would expect to find a wild animal. But green sea turtles, have become regular visitors to beaches found in more peaceful parts of the metropolis.
Over the last month, people living in Hong Kong and Hainan Province have been lucky enough to see the giant turtles lay their eggs on the beaches at night. Male turtles spend their entire lives in the sea. But every two to six years, the females swim thousands of miles from their feeding grounds to lay eggs in their own birthplaces.
Unfortunately, few of the baby turtles survive with only one in l,000 living into adulthood. If they manage to grow big, which takes 20 t0 30 years, they can live for more than a century.
Man is the main reason why turtles are dying out. The creatures' habitats are destroyed by fishing and pollution, while the turtles themselves are killed for food and leather.
"Sea turtle eggs and meat saved us during Japan's occupation of Hong Kong in World War II," said 65-year-old resident Chan Kam-wan. But the days of eating turtle eggs have long since passed. Hong Kong banned the eating and sale of them in 1976, hoping to help save the endangered creatures.
In recent years, the government has closed beaches between June and October so the turtles can lay eggs in peace. Scientists also try and keep a count of the number of turtles, even following them using satellites. Through tracking the turtles, they hope to learn new ways of protecting them.
Officials in Hong Kong recently finished a study on sea life in the area. They are considering setting up a sea park to protect the sea turtles from water pollution and illegal fishing.
