內容說尤其廉價的空中巴士特別污染環境,因為為了壓低票價,用的燃料很劣質。嗯,怎辦?再這樣下去,我也開始有點不敢做旅行夢了...

hiya shuyu,
thanks for leaving me a message!
How are you? Are you now back in Taipei??

I read your blog too--really nice contents! Keep writing!

Hmm, shall I buy my ticket to Barcelona... very very difficult to decide...

Anyway, take care and keep in mind that there's only one earth.

dear wanyu,
其實我一直都在看你的網站噢-新聞台和新舊blog都是. 很佩服能持續書寫的bloggers. 我雖開了台卻常不知該寫什麼, 有時好不容易有了靈感, 文字在腦中盤桓一陣, 下筆之際又全沒了, 實在是...

Barcelona!當然要去! 你下次返台總還是要搭機的吧(苦笑).

嗯,有時候我還相反耶...不對著電腦,好像就寫不出東西...中毒特深...

大家都繼續努力寫吧,開心的寫...

很開心我們還這樣保持聯繫! :-)
