The two newly-found-earth-sized planets, called Kepler-20e and Kepler-20f might hold life. The scientists are not so sure yet because their instruments are not sensitive enough to detect them. One of them circles its sun in just 6 Earth days, and other does in 19. Scientists believe that there might be others like them exist. The reason that the scientists expect that the planets might hold life because the temperature was estimated at an average of about 30’c- perfectly for liquid water. Only 20 years, people have been able to look out at the universe and realize that other planets exist in the universe too. Scientists estimate that we might find other planets could hold life or could be habitable which we can settle our alien-planet colony.
South-west Cambodia, Koh Kong, it is a new destination for tourists. Well, last year, I had a holiday. I went there. Koh Kong is nothing but nature. I don’t know why it captured my heart. I really wonder why I say this place is one of the most interesting places I’ve ever been to. Perhaps, I went there with my friends? Hmm, let see!! Koh Kong has long had a reputation as a “Wild West” frontier town. With the opening of the Thai-Cambodian bridge across the river and the building of several casinos near the border post, the town has become an increasingly popular tourist destination. What inspires me the most was inhabitant places. I took a boat to Koh Kong Island, trekking in the Cardamom Mountains along the Ta Tai River. I’ve seen as well a beach where sea animals breed an lay their babies..It was amazing at the night time, you can see the fireflies everywhere.
During winter 2010, the musoons blowed very far from north, Serberia. It’s also a time for holidays in Cambodia. My friend and I decided to take our bike, my bike to the east, Vietnam. We took our small 20-kilometer-per-hour Charley brand bike. Our bike, of course, ran very slow, but we enjoyed it very much. Most people would never believe Charley could reach that far. It took 5 days to get there in a distance of only 200 kilometers. While we were on our way, oh, we loved it so much. We slept on the way with the local people, in pagoda. While staying with the local people, they taught me lots of things. They asked me to get up in a very early morning that I never used to, to go to the drought brown rice fields. Can you guess why they took me there? It was amazing. Most children are ready out of home to the field. They brought a bent iron like hook and a plastic bag. They used that bent iron to put in a hole and tossup. Not very long, a snake appeared. They kept doing it to many other holes, and it worked every time. I didn’t eat that snake!!
Two of us, my sister and I on the back of Motodop winds through the trafic on Kampuchea Krom Avenue, which runs in a straight line to the city center. We cross other major boulevards- Mao Tse Tong, Sivutha, Monivong ; before reaching a strenge large star-shaped struture with a golden color surrounded by many taxis and buses and cylos. That was Psa Thmey or central market, one of the largest in Phnom Penh, where anything can we found. The motodop dropped us off opposite the Royal Palace, where the 2 rivers, the Tonle sap and Mekong flow together. Viewed fromthe promeade, they appeared to be very distinct. On one sideof the river sis the clear blue water of Tonle Sap and onthe other, the enormous muddy flow of the Mekong. They both flow reversely. We stopped for while to take a rest. We soon were surrounded by a group of children. They looked at us with doubts and strenges. We were the only white-Cambodian Chinese-like with glasses.
Paradis sur la Terre in French means Paradise on earth. Why is it so ? As everyone knows from fairy tale or some document about paradise that a very beautiful place that you can’t find somewhere else like it on earth is paradise. Now I can find it on earth. It’s called Bokor. It’s another paradise which located on earth. It is an unforgetable beautiful comfortable fresh view on the top of a very quite high mountain with moving clouds and low temperature. It used to be a French town during French colonization. Then it became an abandoned ghost town after. During 1980 plus, this place was a kind of thief’s home. Now, no doubt, it becomes one of the safest place in Cambodia beside the forbidden time which it’s not garenteed. I recommend you to bring your thick coad ; otherwise you might be frozen, and to avoid camping near the hill because the wind blows strongly. Your tent can possibly be blowed away. If you go there, I am sure that your trip will be an never-ending lovely trip ever !!
South of south-korea ; national park at Hyundai beach. People dressed very Korean. Most people brought their families, their friends to see a beautiful amazing white beach and a pretty unique cliff. I myself was there alone was so lonely, and homesick. I should have seen it with my family or friends. The view is so beautiful ; with its nature of blue sea, white beach, grey-brown cliff, green trees surround, and High-rise building nearby. That was the first time I’ve seen an amazing beautiful nature abroad. One thing which is strenge is that the beach was empty ; no visitor, no one swim, very quiet while the water was really warm to swim in case of other beaches are quite frozen to swim. I’ve nothing to show you, but only a picture of me with my Khmer traditional dress amount all the people dressed in Korean styles. If I am not wrong, I was the only foreigner who dressed quite different.
Two-wheeled vihicles with not-wearing helmet drivers horned all over the places, narrowly avoiding each other on a little tiny streets. They moved in a fast speed around 15 kilometers an hour. This is the trafic during the year of 2000. Now, everything is quite different. It started to be very different during thèse last few years. There have been more and more cars, luxury cars. The Streets have been busier and busier. But the speed is more or less the same, very slow. There have been more trafic polices waiting for their preys ; people who don’t obey the trafic law. Neverthless, the Streets have been changed, it’s larger and more convenient.
Cambodia is a land of extremes. Its history is fraught with such violence and yet its future is fulfilled with so much hope. Cambodia’s people, as it’s called Khmer, struggle and selfless sacrifice for its victory and its future. Cambodia has become a never-ending love affair for everyone even though it bothers us with dust, dirt and even smells. Honestly, people might fall in love because os the country and its people with its history. Cambodia has had so much sadness and sorrow, and yet the Cambodians always have a ready smile, a fresh smile. I am amazed that human nature has so much forgiveness withing. Cambodian have very little to eat, but they invite you to share their meals with. Perhaps it’s their beliefs. But what I do know is that Cambodia, by any other name, is a soul-searching experience. it will always be so until the souls have been put to rest. For always, this is my country. This is my Cambodia.

In the heart of Korea, Seoul, there is a big park with a big mountain where people go for week-end. I arrived Seoul at 10 am. I know nothing but that park. I decided to go there by walk because it was only about 8 kilometers from our place. I had thought I had a terrible time; people speak only Korean, no English letters, know no one. I went to a shop to buy coke and ask for information. Let’s see whether she can speak English or what. Well, as usual, no one can, she doesn’t either. Then there was a guy, he wore in suit, came over our place. He spoke in English with us; that was the first time Korean spoke in English with me. I asked him where the park was. He tried to explain us with his broken Engish; we, still, don’t understand. He then took my hand to his office, and asked me to wait. I was so afraid!! Immediately, a little long bright luxury Hyundai brand car appeared. Whose that was, can you guess?.. It’s no doubt that the car was someone else’s. I waited, and waited, and waited, until a little loud horn rang; a new foreign luxus brand car showed up with a big gentle smile driver in the car. » oh, dear! » I thought » is this guy going to bring me somewhere far, and kill me? » Just looked at his smile again, my heart changed itself to be gentle. He kindly picked me to the park, and told me how to catch the bus, metro, and taxi. He even gave me a map.
