When I was a child growing up in Ohio，the butterflies would sometimes pass through on their way to Mexico．and it was awesome to see football fields full of them—and I wanted to revisit that on a larger scale．I knew I had，to go to see the migration(迁移)in Mexico．
But I was on a budget．I didn’t want to rent a ear in Mexico or take a bus to Valle de Bravo，the starting point for most butterfly adventures，so I called the guys at the Muddy Boot，travel experts in Mexico who can make almost anything happen at a reasonable rate．
And so，on January 2，I found myself in the Muddy Boot van(货车)，being driven two hours from Mexico City to Valle de Bravo，a lovely town on a volcanic lake which is a central point for the butterfly journeys．I booked a two-night stay at the Hotel Rodavento，all eco-friendly hotel with individual wooden houses spread throughout the forest and around a lake．
The first sanctuary(保护区)I visited was Piedra Herrada，a popular destination，as it is only 40 minutes away from Valle de Bravo．The climb up is tiring．It is advisable to hire a horse．But the horse cannot take you all the way，and there is some hiking in thin air，so you must be patient，drink a lot of water，and be in reasonably good shape．
The walk is more than worth it though．As I struggled to catch my breath，I looked up and lost my breath again．At first glance，the trees had turned into different shapes，but on closer inspection，every inch of them was covered with butterflies．
A few flew through the air(Most of them were not warm enough)．As the sun rose，they began to come alive．Soon the air was filled with flying butterflies，transforming the forest into something magical and straight out of a fairy tale．

The students’ union has decided to organize a trip to Mount Wolongshan on New Year’s Day, so I’m writing to tell you about the details.
All of us will get on the school bus at the school gate at 8:00 in the morning. Then we start our trip to Mount Wolongshan. The climb will start at the parking center. Everyone is expected to pick up the rubbish as we climb up, which will help to polish the beauty of the scenery. We won’t have lunch together, so you need to prepare a packed lunch with you. And also, bring your umbrella or raincoat with you in case it rains.
Have a nice day!

Good evening. You are listening to Pop World of BCD International. I’m Susan. Well, first, I would like to say a few words to my dear listeners who are not very familiar with this program. Since many people want to listen to and understand pop songs, radio producers at BCD International have made hundreds of programs over the years. We not only have access to the stars of the music world, but we also have a large library of “golden oldie” classics, as well as the “latest releases”. For those of you who like a bit of background with your favorite music—there’s The History of PO or The Road to Music. If you want to hear from the artists themselves, there’s a new series called About the Big Hits. This is based on interviews with popular singers and songwriters. If you want to understand the words to the big music hits, Pop Words is the program for you. After all, it’ s hard enough for native English speakers to understand most pop songs—so, if English isn’t your first language, you shouldn’t be surprised if the words to many songs leave you in the dark.
