World Wonders: Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel situated near Huayna Picchu mountain ridge. Machu Picchu stands 2,430 meters above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces, and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. The natural setting, on the eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna. It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru, above the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometers (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows. In the Quechua language, machu means "old" or "old person", while pikchu means "peak; mountain or prominence with a broad base that ends in sharp peaks", hence the name of the site means "old …

Tuan Dirga: An Independence Day Competition

Did you know that Indonesia is already 72 years old? I bet that some of you have already know. This time, I want to tell you about my experience when celebrating my first Independence day in Senior High. In Saturday, 19th of August 2017, my school held a competition named Tuan Dirga, which celebrate Indonesia's 72nd Independence Day. We came early in the morning, and we are divided into several groups. Each groups contains 2 classes who will compete each other in certain games. My class, Science 9 had to compete with Science 1.

The first game was 'bakiak race'. I participated in the first round of bakiak race and we won. But Science 1 offered a rematch. And the second round was done by the girls of both classes. On the second round, my class lost the race. And because of that, we had to move to the third round. Third round was not so good, my class once again lost the race, and that means Science 1 have won the 'bakiak race' game.
The second game was called 'bo…

A Grateful Moment

I have a very colorful experience. When I was in the 9th grade of junior high school, My teacher asked me and my classmates to make a product, a kind of handicraft in the group of 6 people. The deadline is 3 days to go, and my group haven't done the task. So I decided to do the group work after the school lessons end. I have told them to do the group work today.

When the bell rang, I was preparing the materials to make the product. Suddenly, all of my friends, who in the same group as mine, didn't want to do the task, they insist to go home with many excuses, some of them told me that they want to study at home. But the product must be completed within 3 days, and we cannot do it later. We had to do it today, if we want to finish the product. So I decided to do the product alone.

It was a rainy day, and I didn't have enough materials to complete the product. I decided to go to the market near my school to buy all of the materials. I ask one of my friend, Hafidz to accompan…
