A Beautiful Day at Jogja
ditulis oleh Arsianti Dewi
Last week, my friends and I went to Jogja. We visited many places.
First, we visited Parangtritis beach. The sun shone brightly and the scenery was very beautiful there. We felt the wind blew across to us. We also saw a lot of people in that beach. There were many birds flew in the sky. Also, there were many sellers who sold many kinds of souvenirs. Second, we visited Gembira Loka Zoo. We saw many kinds of animals there such as monkeys, tigers, crocodiles, snakes, etc. We looked around in that Zoo, and also took pictures of those animals. Then, we felt hungry, so we went to a restaurant. As soon as we finished our lunch, we decided to go home.
For me, that was a beautiful day. we really enjoyed it, and I hope I could visit Jogja again. ^^
