Egypt’s Capital

Cairo is the largest city in Egypt. Here


you can always roll back the centuries. Modern Cairo has tall buildings and broad streets, equal to any in the capitals of Europe or Australia. From the top floors of impressive blocks of flats you can gaze at magnificent views across the river Nile.

However, behind the modern buildings are narrow alleys where there is no sound of traffic. The only sounds that come to your ears are the calls of the stall-holders. Water sellers and herdsmen wander through the streets as their

forefathers did thousands of years ago. Many of the poorer people still dress in the same way as their ancestors.

B. Esai

Contoh jawaban:

Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, is one of the most favorite places in the world to visit. The tower is designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel for the World Fair. It first opened on March 31, 1889. Every seven years workers repaint it with fifty tons of dark brown paint.

The tower is made of 2,500,000 rivets and 18,038 steel pieces. It weighs 7,000 tons. The base is 412 square feet or 2.5 acres and the tower itself is about 1,052 feet high including the television antenna at the top.

Otis Elevator Company had designed glass-walled elevators, which climbed the legs of the tower to get to the first and second platforms. From the second floor to the third platform, which is near the top, four balanced elevators go up and down in the area. If you looked on a clear day, from the top platform, the view stretches for 50 miles, around 80 kilometers.

The Eiffel Tower consists of three levels.
On the first level are three-glass-confined structures. The second level is occupied by restaurants; Le Parisien on the lower level and La Belle France on the upper level. The third level is the Salle (hall) Gustave Eiffel, where there is space for business, conferences, expositions, cultural events and social meetings. The souvenir shop and a snack bar are located on the smaller second floor. Even from this level, it is very possible to see an excellent view of Paris without having to go to the top.
