1-Tomatina
If you go to the Spanish town of Bunol in August, you should wear old
clothes. Don't wear good clothes because you may get covered with
tomato juice! The famers near Bunol grow a lot of tomatoes. In summer
there are too many tomatoes to sell. So the people of Bunol have an
unusual way of using them. Every year, one day in August is called
"Tomatina". In the morning the shopkeepers in Bunol put plastic over
their shops. They don't want their shops covered with tomato juice. a big
crowd of people comes into the town. Then trucks bring 125.000
kilograms of tomatoes. At eleven o'clock the fun starts. Suddenly
everyone starts throwing tomatoes at each other. People enjoy throwing
tomatoes. They also enjoy being hit by tomatoes! When tomatoes hit you,
you get covered with tomato juice. Soon everyone is red. And everyone is
having a lot of fun! Then at one o'clock every one stops throwing
tomatoes. The streets of Bunol are covered with tomato juice is gone.
Tomatina is finished for another year but next August the farmers will
have a lot of tomatoes again. And will be Tomatina time again.
A) Answer the following questions: 1. what happens when a tomato hits you?
..
2. why should you wear old clothes if you go to Bunol in August?

3. do the people of Bunol eat a lot of tomatoes during Tomatina?

July 25th,2002
Dear Johnny,
How are you? I haven't heard from you for a long time. I
hope you're doing fine.
I have a two-week vacation from the beginning of next month. Would you
like to come and stay with me for all or part of it? There are lots of
things we can do and places we can go.
I remembered that last time you were here. We had lots of fun. Do you
remember the day we went to the caves? We got lost and my parents had
to send people into the caves to find us. We shouldn't do that again!
My dad says that he will takes us to the museum if you like. I've always
wanted to go there. People says it's very interesting. If you come, I'll
pick you up at the train station. I suggest you come on Saturday. There
are fewer people on the trains during the weekend.
I'd like to stay for the whole two weeks of my vacation, but if you can
stay only a few days, that's ok, too.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you can come. Please give your
parents and your sister my best wishes.
Your friend,
