People enjoy taking trips. But what are the reasons they leave home?
One reason is for education. People travel because they want to broaden their horizons to learn about other people and other places.
They are curious about other cultures.

He gets a vivid picture, a real life of one of the French people.

What about the tourist who goes to Hong Kong?
Does he get the same information that he could get from a book?
He might read that Hong Kong is crowded, that there is less than 200 square meters of space for each person.
But seeing and feeling the lack of space will impress him much more.
He might read that there are nearly 200 vehicles for every kilometer of roadway.

Shanghai - shanghai officials are welcoming a new national water law that they say will help them protect the upper reaches of the Huangpu River and other ways in Shanghai.
The new law, which came into effect yesterday, updates a law enacted in 1988 that focused on supplying water to needy areas, but didn't pay a great deal of attention to environmental protection.
The previous law, for example, gave local authorities power over waterways in these areas, but didn't pay attention to the sources of those rivers and lakes.
So, Shanghai was responsible for cleaning and protecting the lower reaches of the Chang Jiang River but had no say in how the river's upper reaches, which feed into Shanghai-are main-_____ tained.

Our plan was to drive into Cambridge, catch the 7=34 train to Liverpool Street Station, then to separate and meet again for lunch.
We should have arrived at Liverpool at 9 =19, but due to a typical London fog, the train had to move along so slowly that it wasn't until 10=30 that it got there.
In spite of our late arrival, Joan, my wife's sister, decided that she would go to see the Grown Jewels in the Tower of London while we went shopping.
It was only after her sister had disappeared into the fog that my wife realized that we hadn't decided where we should meet for lunch.
Since I had our three tickets for the concert in my pocket, this was indeed a problem. There seemed to be nothing we could do except taking a taxi to the Tower of London.
and try to find her there. Needless to say, we didn't find her.
It was now one o'clock, and the concert began at 2!30.
"Perhaps she will think of wailing outside the concert hall." suggested my wife hopefully.
By this time the fog was so thick that road traffic had to stop, and the only way to get there was by underground railway.
Hand in hand we fell our way along the road to where we thought the nearest station should be.
An hour later we were still trying to find it.
Just as I was about to lose my temper completely when we met a blind man tapping his way confidently through the fog.
With his help we found Tower Hill tube station just fifty yards down the road.
By now ii was far too late even to try to get to the concert hall before the performance began at 2:30, so we decided to return lo Cambridge.
It took seven long hours instead of the usual two to make that journey.
Nor were we able to gel any food and drink on the train.
Tired and hungry we finally reached home at ten ,opening the door to the sound of the telephone bell.
It was Joan; she had seen the Grown Jewels, had managed lo get another ticket for concert, and had had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant near the hotel where she decided to stay for the night.
Now she was ringing to discover whether we had had an equally successful day.
64. Why was Joan separated from her sister and her brother-in law?

To build a safer car, Japanese automakers are trying to replace the most accident-prone(易出故事的) part: the driver.
Inspired by statistics blaming human error for most accidents, Toyota and its competiors are designing "intelligent" cars that can almost drive themselves on the high way.
The systems are designed to reduce human tiredness and the mistakes that often result. This kind of support is what drivers need most in a country with some of the most crowded roads in the world.
That is why it should not be surprising that Japan is leading the race to make cars smarter.
To provide a safer ride, Japanese automakers are turning to technologies like laser radar(雷达) and machine vision to replace tired eyes and wondering minds.
An infrared(红外线的) radar unit fixed on the bumper is part of a new cruise (巡航) control method that Toyota introduced in August 1997.
It's now an optional feature on its Celsior luxury sedan that costs 70000 yen(US $ 648).
The "adaptive" system tracks the car ahead, and slows down or speed up the car automatically to keep a safer distance in highway traffic.
The same technology has also been used by some cars made by Toyota's competitors.
Subaru, a type of its Legacy wagon, made its first appearance last September with Active Driving Assist(ADA), which besides adjusting cruising speed, sounds an alarm if the car goes out of its lane or makes a turn too fast.
In the latter case, it down shifts gear even before the driver starts to brake.
An even smarter system is coming from Honda.
Called Honda Intelligent Driver Support (HIDS), it "sees" the road through a tiny camera on the windshield and helps steer the car down the middle of lane.
A computer picks out lines on the highway surface and touches the car's steering wheel in the right direction.
Honda got approval (批准) in March to start testing HIDS on the highway and says it will arrive in showrooms in the near future.
68 Why are Japanese automakers developing cars that can almost drive themselves opn the highway?
A.Because they want to win the car competition.
B.Because many accidents resulted from the mistakes made by drivers.
C.Because drivers are always tired when driving the car.
D.Because people don't want to drive the cars themselves.
69. What is the main purpose for the automakers to design the system of the new cars?
A.To make them run faster so that they can sell them at higher prices.
B.To make them keep to the lane without being controlled.
C.To help drivers make fewer mistakes so that accidents can be avoided.
D.To use some advanced devices like laser radar and machine vision.
70. We can infer from the passage that___.
A.accidents always occur in the crowded streets
B.traffic accidents are likely to happen when drivers are tired and careless
C.accidents happen because traffic rules are not obeyed
D.many accidents occur because there are no advanced systems
71. If you drive the car with HIDS, you will find___.
A.your car is always keeping the right direction
B.your car is slowed down or sped up automatically
C.your car is controlled by an infrared radar
D.you are always keeping a safer distance on the highway
