And explain why many people were smiling
The experience I am going to tell you happened during the last summer vacation, when my best friend and I were bored to death at home and decided to have a tour in Xi’an, a historical city, which used to be the capital of 13 dynasties.
In this city, there was a famous street selling various antiques and handicrafts which attracted millions of people every year. As a tourist, I certainly would not miss it. When I was wandering on the street and browsing those exotic items, I noticed something interesting. A stall keeper was playing a popular song with an egg-like strange instrument made of ceramic. It looked pretty cool.
In front of the stall were standing a couple of parents and their child, who seemed to be attracted by the music. The eyes of the child, who was about 6 years old, were fixed on the stall keeper’s mouth and fingers. After observing for a while, he took one of these instruments displayed on the shelf and decided to give it a go by himself. This article is from laokaoya website. He held it exactly like the keeper, moved his mouth to the top hole, and blew hard, but nothing happened. No sound was made.
He looked confused, but decided not to give up. He blew even harder. I could see his face turn red. Still, nothing happened. His face was full of confusion and disappointment. Many people were standing aside and had watched the whole process. They just could not help smiling. The boy was so cute.
