On the bus we made lots of new friends like Steven 1 and Jack. Also, on the bus we played a few games. After lunch we had a party. During the party we were dancing, singing and talking with each other. And at around 5:00 PM we had dinner. And at that momment I was tired and hungry. The food was delicious.

20th July, 2011. My Diary
We got up very early today to make it in time to the company. We left Shanghai on a bus to Wuxi at 8:00 AM. After two hours we arrived at the hotel and had a rest. Then we went to lunch, ate and started playing games. We got divided into two teams. I am in the red team. The thing I enjoyed mostly was the ?Macarena” dance. We played for a very long time and after having lunch I was really tired and needed to go to sleep. Before going to sleep we had a lesson with Eddie for an hour and after that I was really exhausted. I am looking forward to the next days.

Sunny and cloudy weather
Today we met at 77 Mei Yuan Road at 7:30 AM. We got on a bus to drive to Wuxi. Everyone had to get up very early today to be on time. We left Shanghai at 8:00 AM. On the bus, we made a lot of new friends like Steven (another one), Richard, Eddie (teacher). Also, on the bus we played a few games. Then we reached the hotel. We went to our rooms and had a short rest. After that we met at the hall and went to have lunch. The lunch was really wonderful. Fried rice, and steamed aggs were my favourite dishes from this day. After lunch two foreign teachers were making jokes over the walkie-talkies. That was very funny. Sometimes they said ?monkey” and then they said ?banana”. We had a short rest after the lunch and then played ?Macarena” and ?Baby”. We split into two teams: red team and blue team. Red means power and fire. So we started to shout ?Red Power” to make our energy burn. I'm a member of a red team. We made our signature and team name as well as a song with a team dance. I think our team will be better than the blue team. Now I'm at an English lesson in the teacher's room. After I leave the teacher's room I will go to enjoy the party and read books. After that I will play a card game called ?Yo-Hi-Oh”. Finally, after that, we will all go to sleep. I'm looking forward to climbing the mountains. That's funny, but I have to say that I'm a bit afraid of hights.

We had a lot of games just like yesterday. I liked the game in which we had to cross some strings which the teachers called the electric fence. We couldn't touch the electric line, because then we would be dead, although this is only a joke, of course. It was an exciting game just like skiing and riding a bicycle. After that we had dinner and finally got back to the hotel. I was happy because of the things we did, even though I was also very tired.

Although I like this type of food I know eating junk food is not healthy food. After lunch we went to play basketball. It was exciting. At that moment I felt really exhausted. After that we went to a swimming pool. Swimming is my favourite hobby. I swam with friends for two hours. In the evening we'll watch a film. That's great!

Bill: Today I’m so happy. In the morning we went to the Wisdom Avenue and I saw a lot of famous people statues in there. My favorite statue was the statue of Zhen He. He was a navigator. After that we went to the Fun Bridges and played a lot. It was very fun. In the afternoon we went to play some other games. And every evening we play a lot of games. So I’m very very Happy.
My Diary. Weather: Sunny
We woke up very early today: at 7:15 AM. After delicious breakfast we got to the Fun Bridges. Today was a very hot day. I drank some juice to keep me refreshed. After lunch five boys played basketball. Even though today was hot day I am very happy.
Today we got up at 8:15. We went to the Wisdom Avenue and Fun Bridges. We had a good time today playing at the playground, but the hot weather was really making me tired. After lunch we played basketball and did a blindfold scavenger hunt. I was really good in both of the games.

My Diary. July 26th, 2011. Monday. Sunny weather
It was a very hot day today. The highest temperature around Shanghai was 36 degrees Centigrade, but we were not tired. We had breakfast in house No 27. I don't think it was very good, but Richardson told us the breakfast was good. We went to the Oriental Park to have fun after breakfast and I had the chance to past different bridges. All of them were really nice. Then we had a wonderful lunch. After lunch we played a game called ?Blindfold Scavenger Hunt”. I put the blue team's flag behind the flies' nest. Then everyone in the blue team smelled the flies' nest. We laughed a lot. It was the most interesting thing I remember from today. After that we went to our dormitory, but that time was boring. Luckily, dinner was delicious. I hope tomorrow's activities will also be interesting and hope that the weather will be better.
I am not happy. I want to cry and hope to go home, but I don't want to leave my teacher and Jack. Today we played many games again and I think they are all boring. The weather is very hot. I can't stand it. I want to go to sleep. If I could do what I want I would tell everyone I am a sunshine girl.

Today is the sixth day of the camp. We went to the Wisdom Avenue and saw many sculptures of famous people like Mao Zedong, Sun Zhongshan and Deng Xiaoping. In the future, I want to be a famous person like them. Next we went to Fun Bridges. There were many funny bridges. We played around on them. In the afternoon we played a game in the hotel. Playing together makes me happy. I also like basketball so after the hotel games we went to a different place to play basketball with friends and teachers. I think I played really well. Tomorrow we will go to KFC again. I like it.

What a bad day! What an awful day! I have been hurt. I was leading our classmates back to the hotel. They didn't listen to me and went on the grass, around the road. I ran to meet them and fell down. I hurt myself and wanted to find a mini hospital immediately. I found one quickly, but the guard of that place is very stupid. My teacher drove his car and wanted to go in. The guard asked what we were doing. Teacher said that I'm hurt. The stupid guard said that there was nothing wrong with me. We left. Next thing we know, the entrance to the clinic is right where the stupid guard was. He closed the gate before we could drive through. I'm angry. The stupid guard shouldn't be alive. Why is he so stupid?

Today, the weather was very hot, but I am very happy, because we played many games. Also, we went to many places: Fun Bridges, Wisdom Avenue and lots more. Five boys also played basketball. I enjoyed this day.
Seventh day in the Summer Camp:
Super: “Today is our last day at the Summer Camp. We played a lot of games, no homeworks, no classes, I made a lot of friends and we learnt many things. I will miss my friends. I liked the two foreign teachers very much and some students, I hope to see them again in the future.
Bob: “Today had a very fun day. We played many games and it was interesting. What’s more it was very hot. We ate KFC for lunch, it was very delicious. In the afternoon we went to the swimming pool and we all had a good time. Tonight is the last night we will have a party and play games. Maybe it will be very fun!
Sherry: “Today is the last night of my Summer Camp. I liked every one very much. In these days I met many friends: Jake, Lydia, and so on. I played so many games, I practiced my English, and I ate a lot of delicious food. I am very happy!
Phillip: “Today is the last day in the Summer Camp. We had a lot of fun, we ate KFC for lunch. It was delicious. In the afternoon we went swimming and played a very good game called the “Scavenger Hunt” We all had a very good time.I’m very happy with this Summer Camp.
Vicky: “Today is the last day in the Summer Camp. I really liked my teacher. I played so many games, visited different places and ate delicious food. I’m very happy for this Summer Camp. Although I didn’t like some games because the sun was too hot. I had fun with others.”
Tony: “Today I’m very happy. In the morning I ate delicious food then I stayed in the room because I was so tired. In the afternoon we ate KFC for lunch ad then we played “Treasure Hunt” it was very fun! And my team won! At night we ate delicious food for dinner and now I’m feeling sleepy. I’m very happy with this Summer Camp.
Bill: Today I can be impossible to describe. Today we did a lot of sports and I’m so fat, so I felt tired. Today I was also very happy because we went swimming and we played games in the water like “looking for precious deposits” So I’m happy.But this time I’m feeling bad tomorrow we will say bye bye and it will be the end of the Summer Camp. So I’m feeling a little sad.
Tomorrow I am going to go back to Hangzhou. I do not want to leave my firends. I will miss them very much. After six days in their company I can recognise almost everyone. I would like to thank the teachers. Today we had good meals. In the evening we wrote diaries, as every day.
I cannot describe today very well. We did a lot of sports and it is hard for me to remember. We went to the swimming pool in a small group of people and watched as teachers had a swimming race with Chinese swimmers. It was really fun!

Today was really good. We went to the Heroes Road in the morning and then back to the hotel because of very hot weather. We had a short rest and ate KFC for lunch. It was really good. I loved it. In the afternoon we performed some activities. I really loved the ?Scavenger Hunt”. We found every clue very fast, but it took us a lot to find the last one and we lost. Even though we had lost we still got an ice-cream for participation. Today's dinner was an unforgetable one, because it was the last dinner for this summer camp. I love everybody who participated in this summer camp. I love the teacher. I hope to see everybody again.
Today I think I don't want to go home. I don't want to leave everybody. I want to cry. I hate the word ?leave”. When we were having dinner Richardson, one of the teachers, said that today is the last day. I hate that information. In my life I can meet many people, but I think of everyone as my friend. I will remember my friends forever. Goodbye, my friends! I don't want to leave!

7th day. July 26th.
Today was also a boring day, because of my wound I could only play the games in the hotel. The internet speed is too slow and I could only play CS on my computer. In the afternoon I couldn't sleep any longer. I enjoyed finding the treasure game, the ?Scavenger Hunt”. We found the last note, but we were a little bit slower than the blue team. What a boring morning! What an exciting afternoon!

It is the last evening today at the summer camp. We will leave here and everybody will go to their own hometown. I do not really want to leave this place. I was happy to do all the travelling and games with my team. I have a solution – in the next holiday time I will come to the CTVE camp again. In today's morning I went an participated in a maze run. It was very easy – you just had to run straight. In the afternoon we played ?Scavenger Hunt” with foreign teachers, but the blue team won. They were the first to find the eight paper and therefore were the first in finding the last one, too. It was a happy day.
