Paragraph 1 THE PINK SHEEP Many years ago, a special gift came to me in an interesting way. When I was a small boy, I enjoyed playing in my garden. One day, I found a hole in the wall of my garden. It was near the ground, so I could not see through the hole, but I knew that behind the hole was my neighbour’s garden. Who made that hole? I felt really interested, so I used rocks to make the hole wider. One day, when I was trying to break through the wall, I noticed a small hand appear from the hole. The hand was holding a rubber sheep. It was pink and it had wide eyes. I caught the rubber sheep. Then I pushed my favourite wooden truck through the hole to give that child on the other side. Sometimes I bought toys with my lucky New Year money. A long time later, when I was old enough to go out, I went around the corner to find the child who gave me that special gift, but nobody was in that house. My neighbour said that a girl used to live there, and she was the same age as me. I never found her, but her gift has a special meaning for me.

It has some of the most interesting landmarks and tourist spots in the country. There are many monuments to visit, such as the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument (the tallest building in Washington). For more excitement, the area called Georgetown is famous for its shopping centres, restaurants, and nightclubs. Finally, there is the White House tour. On this tour, people actually walk through many rooms and view the home of the president of the U.S. Washington, D.C., might not be as large or as famous as other U.S. cities, but it has an appeal all its own.
