I.   Last Tuesday, our class visited Bosscha Obervatory in
     Lembang. We left for Lembang by a luxury big bus.
II. On the way to Lembang, we had some games. Those who
     could answer the questions would get a trendy pin and a cool
     sticker. So, though our journey took time, we enjoyed it.
III. When we reached the location, our bus was not allowed to
     enter the main gate as the path road to Bosscha is very
     narrow. Therefore, we had to walk for approximately two
     kilometres to the observatory. It was so tiring! However, we
     took some pictures of beautiful views along the way.
IV. Entering the observatory, we saw a huge
    telescope. We observed it closely while filling
    out our worksheet, as the guide explaining the
    telescopes and stars. He told us that Bosscha was
    built by a Dutch named Karel Rudolf Albert
    Bosscha. That’s why it is named after him.
V. After that, we went into an auditorium to see
    slideshows of stars and other sky objects, such as
    galaxies, zodiacs, etc. It was amazing!
VI. We finished at about noon. We had so much fun!
