是人；talk about sth.意为谈论某事物I
Last year I went to Nepal (尼泊尔) for three months to work in a hospital.
I think it's important to see as much of a country as you can, but it is difficult to travel around Nepal. The hospital let me have a few days
holiday, so I decided to go into the jungle (丛林) and I asked a Nepalese
guide, Kamal Rai, to go with me. We started our trip at six in the morning with two elephants carrying our equipment. It was hot, but Kamal made me wear shoes and trousers to protect me from snakes.? In the jungle there
was a lot of wildlife, but we were trying to find big cats, especially tigers. We climbed onto the elephants backs to see better, but it is
unusual to find tigers in the afternoon because they sleep in the daytime.
Then, in the distance, we saw a tiger, and Kamal told me to be very quiet. We moved nearer and found a dead deer. This was the tigers lunch! I
started to feel very frightened.
We heard the tiger a second before we saw it. It jumped out suddenly, five hundred kilos plus and four meters long. It grabbed (咬住) Kamal's
leg between its teeth, but I succeeded (成功) in pulling Kamal away.
? One of our elephants ran at the tiger and made it go back into the grass, so we quickly escaped to let the tiger eat its lunch. That night it was impossible to sleep.

From Monday until Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and on weekends they are free to relax (放松) and enjoy
themselves. Some watch TV or go to the movies; others take part in sports. It depends on individual interests. There are many different ways to spend our spare time.
Almost everyone has some kinds of hobbies. It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. Some hobbies are very expensive, but others dont cost anything at all. Some collections are worth a lot of money; others are valuable only to their owners.
I know a man who has a coin collection worth several thousand dollars. A short time ago he bought a rare (稀有的) fiftycent piece worth S，
250! He was very happy about his buying and thought the price was reasonable (合理的). On the other hand, my youngest brother collects matchboxes.? He has almost 600 of them but I doubt (怀疑) if they are
worth any money. However, to my brother they are very valuable. Nothing makes him happier than to find a new matchbox for his collection.?
Thats what a hobby means, I guess. It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for the fun of it. The value in dollars is not important, but the pleasure it gives us is.
