My memorable trip
I like travelling so much, and I dream I can travel around the world one day. Many of the places I have been include Hong Kong, Si Chuan, and Shanghai.

Next day, I decided to go to the National Gallery of Art. When I arrived at the National Gallery of Art, the outside structure of the building took my breath away. From outside looking at the museum its size just astonished me. The big tall granite columns and the granite steps...
