When my wife and I went to live in an Arab country, my friends told us to be prepared for a culture shock. Later, we realized that the advice given to us by our friends was correct.

The culture shock started with the weather. Here, the burning sun can cook an egg in a minute! The hot weather made us feel so tired that we were falling asleep at midday!

Another culture shock was the working week. We worked from Saturdays to Wednesdays, including Sundays. It was also strange to see people praying[祷告] in a certain direction! They have strict rules for women. They do not let people see their faces in public. They do not let women drive cars, either. All dresses worn by women have to cover the body completely. They believe that women cannot be seen in public.

At the weekends, we went camping in the desert. I will never forget watching the sun setting over the desert.We also enjoyed riding on the camels.

In the end, we enjoyed living there, but their culture is very different from the American culture.

After many days of waiting, the Olympic mascots were finally chosen at 8pm on November 11, 2005. The Olympic mascots are the Olympic torch[火焰], the fish, the panda, the Tibetan gazelle[藏羚羊] and the swallow[燕子]. The panda is named “Jingjing”. He was chosen because he makes children smile and brings the blessing of happiness wherever he goes. He was chosen to show Chinas wish to protect nature.

Unlike the well-known panda, the Tibetan antelope is considered much sportier than other chosen animals. “I can run 70-100 km per hour. So you see, Im a perfect symbol[象征] of the Olympics-‘higher, faster and stronger.” Says the athlete, whose name is “Yingying”.

The fish, “Beibei” stands for prosperity[繁荣]. She will represent[代表] water sports. “Nini”, the swallow stands for a good luck and wish for a better life. She will represent gymnastics[体操]. The Olympics flame, “Huanhuan” gives out enthusiasm[热情] and best wishes for the Olympics. He will represent ball games.

Many teenagers are surprised that Beijing will have mascots but very excited that they will have more choices when shopping for souvenirs[纪念品].
