If you sail between Hawaii and California, you’ll find a big part of the ocean, as big as Africa, covered with garbage. Most of the trash comes from the land, by wind or by water, and some is thrown straight into the sea. Most of the trash is plastic: plastic bags, plastic cups, plastic cans, and a lot more.

24? Some just stays in the sea, some is washed onto the beaches, and, worst of all, some 25. Many seabirds and sea animals that eat the trash in the sea die. Those that are lucky enough to live on may someday arrive on our dinner plate. What we throw away will all 26 one way or another.

Keep in mind what happens to trash, and you may think twice before you throw anything away.

Read Luke’s diary and answer the questions.
Weather: ☼

Today our teacher took us to the Mr. Chang’s farm. When we got there, we saw cows walking around and eating the grass. Mr. Chang let his cows walk freely outside. He even touched their faces and talked to them like a father. Also, Mr. Chang only fed his cows with fresh grass and spring water from nature. He took good care of his cows so he could sell people the best milk. When He milked the cows, he even let us try. It was really exciting to get fresh milk from the cows by myself! When we were going to leave, Mr. Chang gave each of us a bag of cheese. It tasted wonderful!

I think a yellow dining table would look great with the color of my kitchen.

I guess an L-shaped sofa is right for my living room.

I live and wear different faces,

Like everyone else.

Kirsten: Have you read The Travel? I just finished it yesterday.

Kirsten: it is! But it’s quite grim.

Renee: How so?

Kirsten: In the story, a mother and her son were on a trip when they were caught by a group of crazy people. They were kept in a small dark room and treated terribly.

If you enjoy reading, don’t miss Shakespeare and Company when you visit the city of Paris. It is a famous English-language bookstore on the left bank of the river Seine. The first Shakespeare and Company in history was opened in 1919 by an American, Sylvia Beach. Ms. Beach did more than sel1 books. Her bookstore was also a library, and she even prepared beds for writers visiting there. Ms. Beach was not only kind to people but also good at choosing books, so her bookstore was often visited by writers like Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce. But in 1941, after the Germans took power in Paris, Ms. Beach was told to close her bookstore.

In 1951, another American, George Whitman opened in Paris another English- language bookstore, Librairie Mistral. Since then, just as Ms. Beach did, Mr. Whitman has also made his bookstore a library for people to borrow books, and a free hotel for writers to stay in. To remember Ms. Beach, Mr. Whitman changed the name of his bookstore to Shakespeare and Company in 1964, two years after Ms. Beach died.

Next time when you are in Paris, don’t forget to visit this friendly bookstore, and see if you can spend a night there.
