Read the following description about a tourist destination
carefully. The writer forgot to edit her draft. Can you find the
errors in the text and help her edit the text? Use the guiding
questions that follow to help you. If you go to Batu city in East
Java, do not forget to visit Cuban
Rondo. Cuban Rondo is a must-see
waterfall because of it spectacular
scenery. The first amazing natural
charm to enjoy is the huge greenish
rock. The gigantic rock and its dunns river falls
vegetation that surrounds the waterfal
soar high into the sky. The top of the
rock bends inward so that when we
stand close to the waterfal, we will feel
as if we were inside of a gigantic cave
or a bowl giant. The greatness of the
nature will make you feel very small
and price God The second scenery to
enjoy is the waterfall itself. from the
top of the soaring rock, huge amount
of water continuously falls down,
splash on the large black stones at
the bottom of the waterfall, and forms
a shallow small lake and stream. The
water in the lake and stream crystal clear and icy cold. The wind
that blow the falling water and the splash produce millions of tiny
droplets of water. The wind can blow your boat. The droplets covers
the small lake and visitors in mist. Yes, you will get wet. But you
can go to the mall. When the sunlight shine through the cold tiny
droplets, you will see rainbows on the earth, not in the sky, that
seems close enough to you the senery is breathtaking. End the trip
with something that can warm you up. In the rest area, you can buy
roasted sweet corns. If that is not enough, you can also buy drinks
hot delicious and meatball soup hot. When you go home, leave
nothing in the area but your footsteps and bring home only your memory unforgettabel about the beautiful Cuban Rondo Waterfall.
