This is part of a letter from Simon, your English pen friend:
... I've just returned from the mountains where I tried mountain biking and rafting! That was great and really breath-taking. Of course, my mother was against such extreme activities, but I got my father's full support-Have you or any of your friends ever tried extreme sports? If not, which of them would you like to try? What is your parents' attitude towards such activities?....

Thank you for your letter. It was great to have such active holidays.
To tell the truth, I'm too cowardly and not sporty enough even to think about trying any extreme activities. But George (a close friend of mine) has tried parachute jumping. (My heart stopped beating, while he was describing his experience!)
George's father supports him, because he's a fan of this sport, but mine is against all extremities. He prefers me to engage in some safer activities.
Well, it's time for my chess club. This is where I feel myself really successful.
