Chapter 2 You Can’t Miss It
The next day MacDonald and his daughter decided to stay for a week in Dazhou. That was their first time trip away from and they wanted to see something of Dazhou’s beautiful places.
One morning they started out to look for the Red Army Pavilion. They stopped a stranger and asked politely. “Excuse me ,could you tell us how to get to the Red Army Pavilion of Dazhou, please?”
Go five blocks and turn to your right,” the young man said quickly. “You can’t miss it .”
So they walked five blocks and turn to their right, but the Red Pavilion wasn't there. They then asked a second stranger . “Excuse me ,how do we get to the Red Pavilion of Dazhou?”
Go five blocks and turn to your right. You can’t miss it .” the man answered without any hesitation.
But again they couldn't find the pavilion. Finally they asked a third stranger .”excuse me , where is the Red Pavilion of Dazhou?”
“Go five blocks and turn to your right. You can’t miss it .” the man replied unwittingly.
This time they found the pavilion, but they wondered if everything in Dazhou was five blocks and a right turn away.Just then somebody came up to them and said, “Excuse me ,do you know where I can buy some milk around here ?”
“ Go five blocks and turn to your right ,” MacDonald and his daughter said loudly , “you can’t miss it.”
