The Amazing Race (TAR) is a popular reality TV show. Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster created it in
2001 and since then it has won many awards. In the show, teams travel around the world to different places.
They try to arrive first, or at least not come last and they also try to win prizes on their journey.
Every year, between 10 and 12 teams play on the show. There are two people in each team and they must
know each other before they come on the game. For example, they can be husband and wife, parents and
children, friends, etc. They have to travel to different countries and work together on the journey. The teams
get some money at the beginning of the race and they use it to buy food, tickets, etc. They can use planes,
trains, bikes or even skis to travel.
The teams explore places theyve never been to before and have games or challenges. These challenges have
some connection to the country they are in and can be things like riding a camel, solving puzzles or eating a
lot of food, for example. The teams often have to face extreme weather conditions during their journey. Many
times they are outside in the rain or snow or in storms and get cold and wet. Its all part of the experience,
Each week, one team leaves the show, and in the end there are only four teams. The first team to get to the last
city on the journey wins the game. TAR is a very hard game and the teams become really stressed, but its an
amazing experience.

Havasu Falls are in the Havasu Canyon next to the Grand Canyon in the southwestern USA. There are
actually three waterfalls in the area: Havasu, Mooney and Navajo. The waterfalls are in the Havasupai Indian
Reservation, the home of the Havasupai people. Havasupai means people of the blue-green waters.
The best time to visit the falls is in spring, in the months of April and May because the weather is cool, but it is
warm enough to swim. Later, in summer, it gets hot and rainy and there can be floods, too. Visitors can camp
in a campsite or stay at the Havasu Lodge. But you have to book a room at the Lodge three or four months
before you plan to go.
To reach the falls you start at the parking area at Hualapai Hilltop. From there you can walk, ride a horse or fly
in a helicopter to Supai village, 13 km away. From Supai village it is about 4 km to Mooney Falls.
You dont have to be an experienced hiker to walk to the falls because the walk is safe, even for beginners.
However, you must be very careful because there are many dangerous cliffs. There are also caves to explore on
the way. It is a good idea to take water with you and to watch out for rattlesnakes, too.
Whether you walk, ride a horse or take the helicopter, the impressive waterfalls and the peaceful surroundings
make this one of the most fascinating places you can visit. It is an unforgettable experience.

1. Havasu is one of the three waterfalls in the Grand Canyon.

2. The months of July and August are not a good time to visit the falls.
3. The Mooney Falls are about 17km from the parking area.
4. The walk to the falls is dangerous for walkers without experience.

Last summer I went on a trip to Mexico. The country

was beautiful and the food was fantastic. However, I will
say that some of the food was too scary to eat. When we
were at a small restaurant in Oaxaca, the waiter told us
to try the chapulines. I didnt know what they were, but
according to him they were very tasty. My brother and I
were waiting for our food, and soon the waiter brought
our chapulines to the table. They were grasshoppers! My
brother didnt even want to look at them. I am more
adventurous than he is, so I tasted them. They didnt
taste bad at all, in fact they were surprisingly good.
They were sour and salty at the same time. I asked the
waiter how they cooked them. I never thought they
would be so easy to cook. The difficult part is buying
the grasshoppers where I live. They dont sell them in
supermarkets. Well, Ill just have to go back to Mexico
and eat my chapulines there!

People dont normally think of rats as heroes. In fact, rats have a pretty bad name as they are usually found
in dirty places. Here are two stories that will hopefully change peoples minds about rats.
Birgit Steich of Stuttgart, Germany and her family were asleep in their home one night when two burglars
broke in. Gerd, the pet rat, who was hiding behind a bookcase jumped and landed with all four feet and
sharp teeth on the face of one burglar. When Gerd was finished with the first burglar, he jumped on the
other burglars leg and bit him hard on the leg. The family woke up from all the screaming and immediately
called the police. When the police arrived, they discovered that these two burglars were wanted for many
other burglaries.
In Devon, England the Gumbley family was asleep in their home when Fido, an eight-month-old pet rat,
smelled smoke in the middle of the night. Instead of running outside to safety, the rat went straight to nineyear-old Megans room. He started scratching the door until she woke up and realised that the house was
on fire. Megan went to her parents bedroom and everyone managed to get out safely. Fido got a big piece of
cheese for being a hero!

Wicked is an internationally known musical about the witches in the novel,
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The musical started on Broadway in 2003
and has been going on since then in cities around the world like Chicago,
Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, Melbourne and Stuttgart. Wicked is based
on the book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West,
by Gregory Maguire. The book tells the story of the witches in Oz, Glinda,
the Good Witch of the North and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West,
and how they knew each other. It might surprise fans of the Wizard of Oz
to know that these two witches were actually friends! Dont worry, though.
If you havent seen the original Wizard of Oz, you can still enjoy the show.
Wicked shows how these two very different witches became friends and
then enemies. Wicked gives the audience a picture of what it was like in Oz
before Dorothy, the main character of the Wizard of Oz got there. If you like
the Wizard of Oz, go see Wicked, the musical. The music and costumes are
amazing and, of course, the story is really interesting.

Drive-ins or Drive-thrus?
People in the U.S. love getting things fast, and one of the most popular ways to buy things is through a drivethru. In fact, these days people can do almost anything in a drive-thru. You can go to a drive-thru bank or
restaurant, and if you want, you can even get married in a drive-thru! In Las Vegas, there are so many drivethru wedding chapels that its also called the wedding capital of the world. You can even have a wedding
based on a theme, like Star Trek.
Earlier, in the 1950s, though, drive-ins were very popular. A drive-in can be a restaurant, where you park your
car and eat in it, or a drive-in cinema, where you watch a film on a big screen from inside your car. Drive-ins
became less popular in the 1970s when drive-thrus first appeared. With a drive-thru, you dont even need to
stop your car! Who knows what the future of drive-thrus will be. Some day we might be able to have a drivethru supermarket, or even a hospital!

1. Drive-thrus are popular in the US because people like to get things quickly.
2. Many people in Las Vegas have weddings based on a theme.
3. Drive-thrus made drive-ins less popular.
4. There are even drive-thru hospitals now.
