At that moment,Paris suddenly lost its charm(魅力).

A city without cars would be very strange,right?But Venice(威尼斯)is such a city.
Venice is in the northeast of Italy.It wasn't built on land,like Beijing or Shanghai,but on more than 110 islands.Seawater is everywhere around the city.
Even so,travel isn't that difficult.The waterways have always been the best way to get around.There are 117 waterways and more than 400 bridges that can guide you where you want to go.
People in Venice move from place to place by boat.They like to enjoy the scenery and cool summer nights while taking boat trips.They can talk to other people as they go along.
Venice grew out of small islands in saltwater lakes when some Italians escaped from a war more than 1,500 years ago,and built homes there.
Water makes the city special,but it is also a big problem.Sometimes tourists will have such strange experiences.One moment they walk across the Rialto Bridge, and there's nothing special.But when they come back to the bridge an hour later, it's underwater and everyone is wearing rain shoes.
Once,people used too much underground water.This made the city get lower little by little.Now the city has gone down by 23 centimeters.
Another problem is the rising seawater.The temperature has risen over the years.This has made the ice of Arctic Ocean(北冰洋)melt(融化).
Every year,high waters hit the city in autumn and winter.When a lot of water comes,more than half of the city is underwater.
Scientists are trying different ways to stop the city from getting even lower.

Some people have a very poor sense of direction.Unluckily,I am one of them.I have visited a place many times but I may still get lost there the next time.
When I was a little girl,I never dared ask strangers the way.So I used to walk round in circles and hope that by chance I would get to the place I was going to.
Now,I am no longer too shy to ask people for directions,but I often receive helpless or even wrong infor-mation.So I try to avoid giving people wrong directions.If anyone asks me the way somewhere,I always say,“Sorry,I am a stranger here.”
Once on my way to work I was stopped by a man.He asked me if I could tell him the way to the Friendship Building.I gave him my usual reply.But just as I walked on only a few steps,I realized that he had asked the way to my office building.However,I had no time to turn back and look for him.I was rushing to meet with someone at my office and I didn't want to keep him waiting.
When I just got to my office,the secretary showed in the man who had asked me for directions.Imagine how embarrassed I was and how surprised he was when we saw each other at first sight!
