Last winter holiday, I went to Harbin with my mother.

Last winter holiday, I went to Harbin with my mother.

It's very cold in winter. There is snow and ice everywhere and you are always in a white world. You must wear warm clothes. The most exciting thing is playing with snow. Skating is also very interesting there.

I will' always remember Harbin, for the snow, the ice and all the beautiful things. I love Harbin
The 2006 Tour de France was the 93rd Tour de France, taking place from July 1 to July 23, 2006.

The Tour began with a prologue in Strasbourg, on the French-German border, and ended Sunday July 23 in Paris. The distance of the course (run counterclockwise around France) was 3657 km (2272 miles). The race was the third fastest in average speed. Along the way, the cyclists passed through six different countries including France, The Netherlands (a stop at Valkenburg in Stage 3), Belgium (at Huy, Stages 3 and 4), Luxembourg (at Esch-sur-Alzette, Stages 2 and 3), Germany (though not stopping there, Stage 1) and Spain (Pla-de-Beret, Stage 11). The presentation of the course was made by the new director of Le Tour, Christian Prudhomme. For the first time since the 1999 edition, there was no team time trial.

The event, as with some of the Tours of the late 1990s, was marred by doping scandals. Prior to the tour, numerous riders - including the two favourites Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso - were expelled from the tour due to their link with the Operación Puerto doping case. After the tour, the winner Floyd Landis was found to have failed a drugs test after stage 17; runner up Óscar Pereiro Sio currently also claims the title. As of October 2006, Landis is still officially considered the winner, whilst he appeals against the failed test.
To the east of Zheshan Hill on the south bank of Qiantang River, there are about
500,000 mu reclaimed-land like a peninsula to keep off the river mouth, so as to
make from the hill to the outside 12th section like a large-sized bottle with a small
mouth. It is easy for the tide to come, but difficult to ebb. Hangzhou Bay\'s width
is over 100km, but up to the outside 12th section is narrowed only several kilometers.
However, the river east part of the riverbed is sharply raised. In this way, it becomes
the riverbed high and water a little. As a great quantity from the Qiantang River mouth
is reaching, the tide cannot be raised equally due to narrowed-down river area. Then, it is
forced rear tides pushing front tides while the front tide is not fast enough, thus, one upon
another, forming the most magnificent natural phenomenon in the world.
