Earthquake often happens around us. It brings great damages. Earthquake is hard to be predicted and that
makes lot victims. Actually there are three kinds of earthquake. These kinds of earthquake are commonly based
on the factor and geological area where the earthquakes happen. These three kinds of earthquake are tectonic,
volcanic and explosion.
A tectonic earthquake is the most common one. This kind of earthquake happens while earth's crust rocks break
because of the geological strength created by moving of the earth's plates.
Volcanic earthquakes happen exactly with volcanic activity. Volcanic earthquakes are when the volcano
produces acidic lava, which dries quickly; when it dries quickly it blocks the top of the volcano. This make no
more magma can escape. Pressure starts to build up and eventually the acidic lava can no longer stand the
pressure. So the volcano is free to explode, the pressure is released so fast that an earthquake is caused. A
volcanic earthquake is usually kept within 10-20 miles of the volcano.
Explosion earthquakes are the result of the collapse earthquakes that are small earthquakes occurring in
underground mines and caverns.

Last summer I went to India with my family. We spent 10 days travelling around Rajasthan and I will never
forget it. We saw lots of things like the Taj Mahal and we went to a tiger reserve. Our guide was called Krishna
and he was really really nice especially when I didn’t always understand things he would explain it to me and
answer all my stupid questions. Also when I got ill with a fever he was really kind and gave me medicine (and
got a priest to give me a blessing in a Hindu temple we visited) and I got well again very quickly.
There were lots of amazing parts of the holiday. One was when we got to ride on elephants in Jaipur. My sister
and I rode an elephant called Lucky. It was really fun and I also liked riding on a camel. We were in a camel
cart but Krishna talked to the camel’s owner and we were allowed to ride on them, which was really cool. I also
really liked the Taj Mahal because it was even prettier than I imagined. My sister lost her shoes but the people
in India are really kind and so we found them again. The weather was really hot which was nice because
Krishna gave us lots of time to spend in the pool and relax in-between going to see all the amazing sites.
This was the best holiday that I have ever been on; I will miss the other people in our group and our guide a lot.
I wish I could come back another year.

Dear Mr.Deni
Thank you for your second letter. It is very interesting to read about the farming tools used by the farmers in
your village.
Now I would like to tell you about the tools that the farmers in my area use. Most farmers here use tractors till
and loosen the soil. They help us to do the tilling work quickly. To make holes in the ground we also use a
machine called a seed drill. It is also used to drop seeds into the holes and their fertilizer. For large rice fields
we plant seeds by air plane. We also use the air plane to spray the chemicals on to the rice fields. When
harvesting time comes we use a combine. It can cut the rice and separate the rice kernels from the stalks. This
machine can harvest more grain than 200 people working by hand.
Well, Mr.Deni, that is all for now. I’m looking forward to receiving your other letters.

Your sincerely,

Willy Chou
