Day and night across China, groups of middle-aged retirees, mostly women, gather together to dance in open space, like squares and parks. They are known as “guang chang wu da ma”. Their love for square dancing has made them a national phenomenon. 

However, some people don’t think highly of it. Their music is too loud, and they take up too much public space. Besides, they even dance at improper (not proper) places--- such as the square in front of the Louvre in Paris, where Chinese tourists broke into a dance last year. 

Even so, the dancers are growing in number and style. Li Dong,46, is a pioneer in this field. “In addition to keeping fit, square dancing has become so popular because older people who are free from work and from raising children want to be connected with one another. But I think that square dancing has a deeper meaning.” 

By teaching herself different dances, such as Latin, Tango and Cha-cha, Li adds variety (花样) to square dancing. “Although we are old, we are curious and want to try different dance style,” she said,” because square dancing has attracted(吸引)so much attention, I want to take it seriously.” 

As for people’s objection(反对),Li says her team has taken the suggestion of turning down the volume(音量)and dancing at proper sites.” We are not a trouble at all.”

For ten weeks, in a great house on the island of St Thomas , John C. Lilly tried to teach a six-year-old dolphin to speak English.

The Silk Road is the name of different roads that long ago connected Europe, Africa and Asia. People reached these different places along these roads. Scientists believe people began to travel the Silk Road about 3000 years ago. By the time the Chinese silk trade became important in the world, the Silk Road covered almost 6500 kilometers.

In modern times, the old Silk Road routes(路线)are still used, but now they are crossed by trains instead of camels and horses. There is even a Silk Route Museum in Jiuquan in China.
