Last weekend we went camping in a small village in India. First, we took a long bus ride to a lake in the countryside. Then we 16 our tents and made a fire to keep us 17 and cook food on. On the first night, we just sat under 18 moon and told each other stories.
The next morning, my sister and I got a terrible surprise. When we looked out of our 19 , we saw a big snake sleeping near the fire. I was so scared 20 I couldn’t move. We shouted to our parents for help. My dad started 21 up and down in the tent. This woke the snake up and it moved away. My dad told 22 later that snakes don’t have ears but can feel things moving. He 23 told me it was important not to go near a snake. This was a very useful lesson for me.
