Dear Miss Luo, How are you these days? The winter holiday is coming. Where are you going to visit? I plan to travel to China with my family. We want to visit the Xian City Wall in Xian, the Forbidden City in Beijing and The Grand Buddha in Leshan in Sichuan. But I know little about them. Can you tell me something about these places of interests? Please write to me soon. Best wishes! Yours, Alice
