The flight is going to be long, so I’ll probably be very tired. After I get there, I am going to go to the university. As soon as I can, I’ll take a bus to see the city and museums. The next day, I am going to watch my daughters dance in the festival. It’s going to be an interesting trip. I’ll bring you a souvenir, I promise! </li></ul>
