The Bermuda Triangle.


It was a sunny afternoon in 1945. Five American planes were flying over the sea near Florida . Everything was fine. Suddenly, the pilots sent a strange message to their controllers: This is an emergency. We're lost" .
"Fly west", the controllers said. The pilots sent this answer:
" Everything is wrong- strange. We aren't sure of any direction. The sea looks different



Then the five planes disappeared. The pilots' last words were : "We are completely lost." The controllers sent another plane to look for the pilots. That plane disappeared too.

A STRANGE EXPERIENCE

Last month I was on holiday in Ireland with my mum and dad. One day, we were driving through a small village. It was time for lunch, so we stopped at a restaurant .
It was a large , old builiding. We looked through the window. There were lots of people in the restaurant. They were eating , drinking and chatting . A musician was playing the violin. But there was something strange about the people . They weren't wearing normal , modern clothes. They were wearing hats, jackets and dresses from another century . We couldn't understand it. But we were hungry , so we opened the door .
When we went into the restaurant, everything was different. The people were wearing normal clothes. The musician wasn't there- the music was on CD. It was a very strange experience !
