NARRATIVE ESSAY: My first visit to the Zoo
Have you ever felt happiness and worry in one day? I lived one of the strangest moments of my life when I went to a summer course with other people. The teachers in this course carried us to visit the Guadalajara's zoo and that day was very strange. A day full of fun became into a worry, because our bus was damaged.
That day at 8 a.m. we went to the zoo by bus, there we sang funny songs and one of the theachers taught us how to do different figures in a piece of paper. After 4 hours, we arrived to the zoo and we went to some games to have fun. We had fun in a rollercoaster among other rides, but then we were tired, so we decided to rest.
We rested in a train that carried us around the zoo to watch different animals. We could see a giraffe that was walking together with a herd of its kind. Also, there were a lot of beautiful monkies and hippopotamus. Moreover, we went to see an amazing dolphin show, in which the dolphins did excellent pirouettes, I liked it so much, because I had never seen a dolphin show in my whole life. After that, we ate a delicious sandwiches and sodas. Later, some of my partners went to different places around the zoo.
Consequently, they got lost, so we had to look for them. When they appeared, the teacher scolded them, and finally, we had to abandon the place. We were sad, but anyway we were making noise. Suddenly, the bus was advancing slowly and then it stopped, the teacher let us know that the bus was damaged, my partners and I were worried about staying there all the night, but we only were there around 3 hours. After that, the chauffeur could fix the bus and we continued our way, while another teacher told us a horror story.
We are thankful to the chauffeur, because he fix the bus and we could arrive to our homes. I learned that I should be patient in some situations ofmy life and that not all the things will be ok. We have to think in a positive way to have success in life.
