. . I saw an endless pit in front of me?

Английский язык | 10 - 11 классы

. . I saw an endless pit in front of me.

The thought of jumping over it — wearing a 45 - pound backpack made my legs tremble.

"I thought this was supposed to be fun, " I grumbled to myself.

The trip had sounded great : a school - sponsored, nine - day hiking trip in Arizona with a group of students.

I'd known beforehand that this trip wasn't going to be a walk in the park, but I had never expected this.

It was raining, we got lost, and now I had to jump over the pit — and do so in the dark with a heavy pack!

I watched a few people jump and land on the other side, and decided I might as well do this.

I got across fine, but then slipped and fell forward, and my face smashed into the knee of the person who had been trying to catch me.

Blood spilled from my nose as I stood up.

At that time I was certain the trip could not get worse.

I was nearly crying when we set up our tents that night.

As I lay in my tent, all I could think about was how miserable I felt.

"Want to talk?

" asked Lori, the girl I shared the tent with.

"No, I'm trying to sleep, " I replied.

Talking to anyone else was the last thing I wanted to do.

The next day I felt exhausted.

As I looked up at the clear blue sky, though, I thought, "Maybe this won't be so bad after all.

" But when we started hiking after breakfast, the sky changed color and turned dull gray.

Then it began to drizzle.

As I started putting my rain gear on, the light drizzle became a downpour.

I was soon soaked to the skin, and I was getting colder and colder.

We were hiking in a blinding blizzard.

It had become so thick by the time we stopped that it was impossible to see even the mountains around us.

All we had was a compass to guide us.

My whole body was in pain.

I was putting on all my dry clothes when my tent mate, Lori, crawled in.

I looked at her and saw the same pain and fear in her eyes that I had been feeling.

I realized how self - centered I had been : I wasn't the only one here who was feeling the freezing wind and the aching muscles.

Lori's sleeping bag had got soaked through, so we decided to try to squeeze both of us into mine.

We got in fine.

The trouble came when we tried to zip it up.

As soon as we got the zipper up to our waists, we would think about how funny this looked and we'd start laughing Of course, this made the zipper go all the way down to our toes.

We would have to start the whole thing over again, but I didn't care.

I was laughing.

No, we were laughing together.

The water in the stream was cool and clear.

The wolf saw that lamb was fat and wanted to eat it.

He began to shout : "You, fool, you are making the water dirty!

" The lamb was afraid.

It looked at the wolf and said in a thin voice : "But, "Mr.

Wolf, I canifot make the water dirty for you from the place where I am standing, because the stream runs from you to me.

" "Stop talking!

" shouted the wolf in an angry voice.

"I know you!

I met you six months ago, and you were very rude to me.

" "You are wrong, Mr.

Wolf, " cried the lamb, "you could not meet me six months ago : I am only four months old.

" "Never mind, " said the wolf, "if it wasn"t you, it was your brother.

10 вопросов по тексту One Saturday last winter, my best friends Amy, Maria, Greg, Andy and I decided to spend the weekend in my uncle's big, old house in the country.

It was stormy outside, so we decided to spend a cosy evening chatting together in the living room downstairs.

Suddenly, there was a powerful gust of wind.

The lights flickered then went out altogether.

'What was that?

' I said.

'Don't worry, John, it's just a power cut, ' Greg reassured me.

We carried on laughing and telling scary stories in the dark.

After a while, there was a bright flash of lightning that lit up the whole room.

There was a loud gasp.

'Andy is missing!

' Amy cried.

We all looked at each other confused and scared, because no one had seen Andy leave the room.

We felt our way around the house, calling Andy, but there was no reply.

We went back to the living room and tried to think of what to do next.

Just then, there was a loud snore from the corner of the room.

At that moment, the lights came back on.

There was Andy, fast asleep on a big, velvet sofa!

Andy sat up sleepily, rubbing his eyes.

'Oh good, the lights are back on!

' he said.

'I was sleepy and feft.

Like a snooze.

I did not want anyone to trip oveT me so I crawted over here.

' We were all very relieved.

After the time of the Romans, the speed of discovery slowed down, and indeed many earlier discoveries were lost for hundreds of years.

It was not until the fifteenth century, with the coming of the Renaissance, that discoveries were again made on a large scale.

Europe was suddenly filled with a wish to explore the world.

No less important was the invention of printing, giving many men an opportunity to read and to own books which before had been available to only the wealthy few.

The spread of ideas was rapid, and led in its turn to the writing of more books.

The voyagers of the Renaissance discovered the existence of many new and strange lands, and in these lands were all sorts of unknown animals and plants.
