For the sake/purpose of solving the traffic problem, the local government held a meeting recently, at which many experts had a full discussion and put forward valuable suggestions.
First, they pointed out that the cause of serious traffic jam was due to the increasing number of private cars. They held/maintained that raising the tax rates of using cars was one of the most effective measures to limit this trend and people should be encouraged to make full use of public transportation.
The second leading / contributing factor that the government couldn’t neglect was the poor road conditions. Narrow streets, inadequate traffic signs and false signal lights added to the trouble. It was suggested that old houses should be pulled down to make way for the traffic.
What’s more, every day we could hear the endless running vehicles roaring through the narrow streets filled with anxious passing crowds. New regulations should be practically adopted to separate them for the sake of safety.
All the experts present agreed that steps should be immediately taken to solve the problem effectively。

Last week, I paid a visit to Guilin together with ten teachers and students who came from our sister schools in America.
As soon as we arrived there, all the people present, especially the foreigners, were deeply impressed by the beauty of Lijiang River. Walking by the river is just like being in the oil painting! We rented a boat and enjoyed the beautiful scenes along the river, talking and laughing happily. After about twenty minutes, we arrived at the bank, where we took a lot of pictures.
The visit benefited us a lot. Not only did we have a chance to appreciate the beautiful scenery in Guilin, but we also promoted the relationship between sister schools. What an unforgettable experience!
