Last month someone vandalised a statue in the town centre. We were angry.
I think the text is about the theft of a precious artwork (the Mona Lisa) from a museum.

I visited a museum yesterday morning.
Last Wednesday afternoon, I was doing my homework.
The last time I travelled abroad was a week ago.
While I was playing computer games last night, the lights went out.
At 8 o’clock last night I was watching TV.
I was playing computer games when the ground started shaking.
On that Monday, I went to work as usual. I noticed the Mona Lisa wasn’t on the wall, but I assumed, like everyone else, that the official photographer was taking photographs of it. It wasn’t until Tuesday morning when the painting still wasn’t back that I thought something was wrong. I asked the photographer if he had it. When he said no, I started to panic. I told the head of security and he called the police. Everyone was very worried and upset. We couldn’t understand where the Mona Lisa was!
