FIRST DAY IN AMERICA


  


This was how I spent my first day! From New Jersey, we drove to New York. The first shop my dad and I went to was a lego store. We saw Star Wars keychains near the entrance and got a bunch of it right away! We got to walk around and take pictures. I had to tell myself over and over that I'm actually here in this wonderful city. It's so beautiful and I can't wait to come back. We drove to Brooklyn and ate at Shake Shack. Shake Shack, I love you and I can't wait to be in your burger-filled arms when I come back. After having lunch, we got ice cream sandwiches at Jacques Torres Chocolate and played with a huge dog named Appa. 

My relatives live in New Jersey and they’re about 20-30 minutes away from the city so we kept going back and forth. I really enjoyed living in New Jersey for a week. I love how it’s a lot different from New York. In New York, I feel like everything’s fast-paced and everything’s so exciting, lively and a lot's going on. In Jersey, it’s got this comfy home-vibe everywhere. It looks exactly like those cute neighbourhoods I would see whenever I would watch shows or movies. Everything’s even more beautiful in real life. It was a great time to go there because everything’s in full bloom. I was surprised to see cherry blossoms all over my cousins neighborhood. It was so beautiful! There were squirrels and wild rabbits everywhere. I love it.
