    The quotes I used was the one about sandy roads and the one about the white washed walls and orange trees being laced by the sun for part a

    For part b I used 'tatty trinkets' and the rainbow of produce and sourced ingredients.


    Same
    Anyone link the orange trees laced with sunlight to the garden of eden?
    Or the sandy roads saying how to sand was dusty and prevented people from acquiring love? - something like that
    oH nah I said that it shows colour and it shows destruction I tried to link it to fire and say this how the ancient people were destroyed something like that.

    [Please be sure to suggest any other points]

    Question One

    What were her first impressions of the hotel and the staff?

    . Al was generous as he waited in the airport for the guests to arrive
    . The Gardners discussion was nice
    . Al seemed to care about her neck pain
    . Hotels dining room was good
    . The landscape and artwork

    What was her husbands attitude and behaviour like? And what were her feelings towards it?

    . Threw a tantrum at market at her
    . Child like immature/irresponsible
    . Pressured Al into putting him in group
    . Rubble on top of the hill- rude
    . Refused to go to the animal sanctuary

    What were her plans

    . To collect him from hospital
    . To persuade him not to file a complaint
    . To go to the airport by Friday to go home
    . Spend remaining days writing notebook
    . Spend remaining days with bees and seeing how she can help
    . Explore the history and area of the place
    . Leave a good reputation after her husband, before she leaves[/QUOTE
    Omg I don't think i mentioned nearly enough of the points especially on bullet point 1 and 2.
    Can you say that Al gave them the best suite in the hotel for BP1?

    Bullet point one for question three was so annoying, I thought that once they went to the hospital they were going to fly back home and now I have barely any points for bullet point 3 😓

    Guys in Q2 could we have talked about the husbands stubbornness and fussiness:

    "unimpressed", "complaining loudly"

    Damn, I was grateful that it was a Letter format for Q1, but I still struggled on which tenses to use and when :/. I couldn't even completely finish the 3rd bullet point which also made my paragraphs unequal. On Q2, I forgot to write an overall for each paragraph!! Q.Q. But on Q3, I rushed the summary and it was sooo basic.

    Y'all reckon if it's still possible for me to get an A?

    I've heard people saying they found it easy etc. and though I'm still relatively confident I've done well, I definitely think it was the hardest paper yet!

    There were only one or two very obvious quotations to pick out for question 2, the rest I sort of rambled on with at the end as I had plenty of time to make sure I eventually picked up the marks hahah

    Question 1 was a dream tho! Mr Head, as many others have noted, is definitely a giant douche

    Hopefully grade boundaries will be down due to the difficulty!!
