Sochi holds the Winter Olympics. Sochi is in Russia. This is last year.

This year, Sochi holds something else. It is a festival for tattoos. It is international.

People go to this festival. They get tattoos. They can also go in a contest. The experts try to find the best tattoos.

Some people just like to watch the festival. They like the people. They like Sochi. It is a nice place. It also has a lot of sun.

Difficult words: hold (to have something happen), tattoo (a picture that goes on your body), contest (a situation when people want to be the best at something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
