 There is a kind of tree known as the baobab tree that looks as if it's upside down. This topsy-turvy  tale retells one mith of how it came to look like that.

Folk & Fairy Tale - EASY READERS

Today, I read The Nightingale.
Actually, Yesterday, I read the story about nightingale in other series.
There were some different points between the both story about Nightingale.
In this story, the Nightingale came to the palace with pleasure, but in the other story, the Nightingale wanted to stay in forest.
It is interesting for me to find the differences.

Hard work

On Saturday, I had a part time job at the Japanese-style Bar. That day, all of the tables were full, so we are very very busy.
I did a lot of work; serve food, take order, make drink, wash the dishes and so on.
At around eleven, when I was putting glasses to the sideboard, my fatigue reached its peak. I dropped a grass and it was broken into pieces.
It was so shock for me. I was very sad......
However, the people working with me are very kind. They worried about whether I got injured or not. It was so impressed me.
