For the average person learning English, I doubt this would be in the exercise book. it made me laugh how the Chinese use certain translations for things which we wouldnt dream of using!
Question..who comes up with these translations, and how much do they get paid?!!!!
Just realised the picture hasnt come out well.It says on the packet 'Herbal Conk Mask'!
Walk along the longest bridge in the world!
Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is famous in that it is the longest bridge in the world with dual functions of being a highway and railway.
Get a taxi to take you to the bottom of the bridge at the Park of Nanjing and then proceed to walk up the bridge. It is very interesting just observing the sights of markets, fishermen, market gardeners, apartments, hovels, even thousands of workers (possibly prisoners)working on the railway track near the bridge.
Once you get to the top of the bridge there are two lots of magnificent monuments dedicated to the workers. As well you get a magnificent vista of the Yangtze river.

It is believed that if you bring a miniature jade Pixiu to the gambling casino and rub it a few times, you will have luck at the table games or jackpot machines.

"Wow,that's Nanjing!" I said that at the moment when I arrived in downtown of Nanjing.You know,before I went there,I have just read some stories in the history books because it used to be the capital of China hundred years ago for 6 times..that's amazing,huh? And in my mind,I thought Nanjing was just a small town and very not that kind of modern,but when I arrived at the downtown of Nanjing,I was really shocked,actually,it looks a little bit like Shanghai. Those shopping malls,and fashion people around you,you will feel so good. Well,when you leave downtown, it's changed to be a tranditional and more Chinese place you used to be thought of, but that's why I like Nanjing. :) You can enjoy the old and new stuff in Nanjing at the same time,that's pretty cool!!
