This lake was amazing and wonderful.Herons plodded along the shores,Kingfishers and cuckoos clattered from sunlight to shade,great turkey-like birds fussed in dead branches,and hawks hovered above us.There was all the time in the world.And we could appreciate everything surrounding by leisurely.The boy in the bow of my canoe slapped stones at birds with a simple sling,a rubber thong and leather pad.He aimed brilliantly at moving targets,missed again and again;the birds were out of his range.He stuffed his sling back in his shirt.Then I looked away.
The lake and river waters were as opaque as rain-forest leaves;the water was veil,blind,painted screen.
原文：联合国下属机构世界旅游组织(World Tourism Organization)公布的数据显示，中国游客对全球旅游业的贡献最大。中国人去年花在出境游上的支出膨胀至1020亿美元，同2011年相比增长了40%。联合国世界旅游组织在其网站上发布的一份声明中说，这一增幅令中国迅速超越德国和美国。后两者在之前是出境游支出最高的两个国家。2012年德美两国出境旅游支出均同比增长6%,约840亿美元。
The figures from the United Nations World Tourism Organization show that Chinese travelers are making the most contributions to the global tourism industry. Chinese travelers spent a record $102 billion on outbound tourism last year, a 40% rise from 2011. That surge sent China screaming past Germany and the U.S. —the former No. 1 and No. 2 spenders, respectively 一which both saw tourist outlays increase 6% year- on-year to around $84 billion in 2012, the UNWTO said in a statement on its website.
