At the end of this term, many assignments, essays and exams came to me. I felt very tired, but yesterday is an amazing day. I want Birmingham to visit a German open market and saw a musical play ¡°Alice in Wonderland¡±.
We left at 3pm, and got to the German open market. This was my first to visit an open market in Britain. Before I went to there, I was doubt whether the market is form Germany or not. After I saw a large car which has German on it, I believed that the market is an traditional German market. There were many German things which were sold in the market. Some traditional German food and drink is also appeared in the market.
When the day was getting late, the lights were turned on. It looked like a wonderland in the dream. The screen was the same in the movies. Everybody looks happy and filled with love. They expected the Christmas. It is a festival which people get together with their family. At that time, I really missed home. I also wanted the same feelings with others.
In the market I bought a lovely bear. It looked like a ball, because the bear is a little bit ¡®fat¡¯. Then, I got a beautiful Christmas tree which is made of wood. I can decorate by myself. When I was in the market, I had the strong feeling that Christmas was coming soon. Thus, I wanted to keep this feeling in my own room. I also saw many colorful candles, stocks etc. It is the best shopping experience of my life.
At 7:30pm, we saw a musical play ¡®Alice in Wonderland¡¯ in Birmingham Theater. I have read the story in Chinese, so I am quite familiar with the story. However, it was still difficult to understand the dialogue in the play. Some of the actors had the accent. One of my tutors told me that the original book is famous for it¡¯s the language. It makes people to laugh from the use of language.
Although the words are hard to understand, I really enjoyed the music and the songs in the play. They were really nice. They used songs to express their feelings and the whole story. Moreover, the settings of this play were great. The whole stage gave me a strong visual sense. But I think it will be better if they the settings more colorful.
I really appreciated the heroine in this play, because she was acting two hours. She sang songs, danced and acted. How difficult for her to remember all the words and steps of the whole play. I couldn¡¯t see her face clearly because I sat too far away from the stage. But I like her very much!!!
This Wednesday is wonderful. I will enjoy more activities like this one.

This Tuesday afternoon my friend and I attended the Yoga course. It is my first atten Yoga in UK. It was a challage for me listening a foreign language to do this exercise.
When I entered the acitivity room in sports center. I was shocked that our tutor is a man. It is unusual in China. When I was in Bejing, all the coaches of Yoga in gym are women. From that moment, I thougt this class must be interesting.
There were only 6 people in the room. I thought it was good for us, because the tutor can help us for our movements. I had some exprience of Yoga in Beijing. Thus, I was quite familiar with the movements. But there were many difference between here and my hometown. For example, the movements here was faster than I used to did. Also, some of the movements changed a bit. All in all, I really enjoyed that class. I think I did enough exercise that day. I liked the cute coach. He is really nice.
Yoga is a good exercise for women. It makes people more peaceful, and people to think and relax themselves. However, Yoga is a good way to loose weight. Afer an hour exercise, people can feel that they are sweating a lot. For women, it is a good to keep our carriage concinnity. Yoga can help us correct our gusture in daily life.
So I love Yoga, I will try my best to keep it!!!!

I like the room which is not very big. I like to paint the light yellow, because the color makes the room bright. I like the big window follow the ground. There must have the beautiful sunshine. I can sit near the window reading or enjoying the sunshine. My room should have the carpet. In the winter I can put my woolen stocks on and walk on the carpet. There is a table in my room which I can do my work there. The bed is a double one, because I prefer the big bed to sleep. I like the bookshelf in the corner of my room; it has a lot of books in.
I like this room because it??s warm and comfortable. I prefer the bright color in the room. I like the big window. From the window, I can enjoy sunshine and watch the stars in the evening. I love reading, so the bookshelf has many books for me to read. I think this room can be the best place to relax and study.
