3-What really struck me about Hyderabad Museum was that it was having facilities even for handicapped visitors.
4-The experience of playing chess made me keen to get invilved in more indoor games.

Hi Simon,

* I’m going to describe the first time that I had a summer job as a waitress in a restaurant when I was a teenager. That was my first summer job and also the last one. and it was great to share that experience with my friends.
* The positive experience wasn’t confined to one particular thing. As far as I remember, I enjoyed the whole summer job experience, from leaving my parents and to working in another small town nearby beach for the first time. I was excited about this job, it was introduced by one of my relatives who knew the owner. and the owner was kind to me, they teach me how to wait tables, like how to take orders, how to bring it to the table, how to fill up glasses and how to take checks. sometimes we also help them wash dishes.
* I went there with my cousin which made the experience more enjoyable. she is the same age as me. we are close friends. we always stick together as much as we can since we were born.
* What really struck me about this job was that it was interesting but exhausting and challenging at the same time. it was my first step from school to the real working world. I learned how hard it is to earn money, and how exciting I can earn money with my own hands. The experience made me keen to experience different job at different city that I like in the future.

-One of my first memories was to transfer by cable car and move to high mountains. Morover, we enjoyed cool weather and special food.
-What really struck me about attractive place was one of the longest cables in the world.
