The Lift to go down

This is where AVATAR movie, a science fiction movie from America. We will walk around at the peak and when it’s foggie, it’s more beautiful.

Then at night, some of us will watch the show. But the others didn’t want to watch and because it’s unconvenient to go back to hotel, so we have to wait in the bus.

After the show ended, we all go back to hotel for rest.
