My Sister First Flight
I took my sister, Katy, for her first flight last month. When we arrived at the airport, she wanted to know why the official weighed the luggage. Then she wondered why she needed a passport. She didn't understand what the security check for. Then she asked who the flight attendant was. When she saw the plane, she couldn't understand what the captain did and where he sat.
What a lot of questions! I was very pleased when we landed.

Visiting Ketep Pass
Last holiday, I visited Ketep Pass in Magelang Regency. It offers the view of high land. I went there with my friends. We left Solo at 7 p.m. through Salatiga town. On the way to Ketep, we enjoyed the view of cocoa plantation and beautiful landscape.
After three hours riding, we arrived at Ketep Pass. Unfortunately, it was still foggy. We were so disappointed because we could not see the beauty of high land. Then we decided to enter the museum of Merapi volcano. There are many pictures of eruption. After that, we continued to see the Merapi eruption film. It was really great. I have never seen it before.
All of us felt very happy because we have got a lot of new experiences.

Sea Eagle
There is an eagle nesting on the tree top near my grandparent's house in Pangandaran. It is a sea eagle.
The color of its feathers is light brown. It has a strong and sharp yellowish beak. Its claws are very sharp. It hunts for fish in the sea but sometimes it hunts chicken and small birds.
Eagle has many sizes, shapes, and colors, but the sea eagle is easy to recognize because it has a strong and streamlined, sharp beak and a stream - line body.
Its forelimbs (or arms) serve as wings. This means that they are of little use of anything except flying. It walks on two legs and has a very flexible neck and strong beak to handle foods, to care of its feathers, and for many other jobs that non-flying animals do with paws, claws, or hands on their forelimbs.
