They went by bus and stopped at the bottom of the hill. Mr Park pointed to the castle at the top of the hill and said, ‘There is no road up there so we have to walk.’ The children were tired and thirsty when they arrived at the castle. But Mr Park had juice for all of them. It was very interesting because Mr Park showed them all the different parts of the castle and explained its history. On the way down the hill Paul’s friends said, ‘Let’s have a race.’ So Paul and his friends started to run. ‘Stop running!’ shouted Mr Park. But the boys ran faster and faster and then Paul fell over and hurt his leg. It wasn’t broken, but he couldn’t walk very well. Mr Park saw a farmer on his horse in a field. He went to speak to him and the farmer let Paul ride his big brown horse down the hill to the bus. ‘Sorry we didn’t listen to you on the hill,’ Paul said to Mr Park, ‘but we listened in the castle.
