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. Margaret Howe, an experiment (试验) helper, would live day and night with Peter, a dolphin. And they would eat, bathe(洗澡), sleep and play together from Sunday to Friday, with only Saturdays off for Margaret. She lived her 1ife in swimming clothes -- with a coat on colder evenings --- and cut her hair short so that she could get on with Peter more easily.

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. It spread from Rome to China, which is from the West to the Far East.

Traders travelling along the Silk Road carried silk, of course. They also carried and traded spices(香料),cloth, valuable stones and gold.

There is a famous old story along the old road. It is said that Roman soldiers(士兵)travelled through central Asia. They started to live somewhere near the ancient Chinese village of Liqian. Some of these Romans married local Chinese women and the story of blue-eyed villages of China was started.

During its busiest period, the Silk Road allowed people from many different cultures and countries to meet each other and mix. The Silk Road allowed the sharing of valuable goods and new ideas. These included people and trading goods from the Mediterranean, Persian, Magyar, Armenian, Bactrian, Indian and Chinese areas. All these peoples travelled the Silk Road, and they shared goods, stories, languages, and cultures.

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.
