October 05, 2007
I have been drawing the outline of the Britain in my mind on the plane. As I landed, it was out of my imagination. The people and the view gave me deep impression, especially the people like some taxi drivers and the environment which was elegance. Even as, the buildings were not high and were surrounded by the green which made the whole place like a garden. At the same time, the widen road made me feel that the place was quiet. Subsequently, the people I met and the life I experienced made me enjoy this country more.
Taxi drivers did things seriously. For example, several days ago, my friends and I reached Britain at night; we only knew the general address. Fortunately, the taxi driver asked the pass-by people the address frequently and we got to the destination at last. The thing that moved me was that he did not leave until we found our houses. When he left, it was nearly midnight. That is to say, what he did was really responsible for his passengers.
More self-machine could be used. For instance, I went to the supermarket and there were several self-servers. Then I checked out quickly, which really saved my time. When I wanted to borrow the books in the library, still, there were self-machine through which I could borrow the books so that I did not waste the time to queue, which veritably attracted me.
Britain was like a summer resort. The climate was moderation and the land was covered by the grass, although it was in winter. The buildings were not as modern as I thought, however, everything looked harmonious.
In a word, Britain is a city with modern machines, at the same time, with returning to the ancients. Otherwise, the friendly people and the fascinating surroundings made me understand the reasons why people were reluctant to leave.
