New York City
On the way from Canada to New York City we stayed in Utica for one night with, some friends who we met through Pete and Suz. They are called Lindi and Jeff and their kids are Tyler and Eva.
Us kids played so well together right from the beginning and it was a shame we only had one night together. Jeff is someone who loves hunting! Jeff offered to teach me some shooting and I got to shoot my first gun! It was amazing! I used a 22 rifle and we leaned on a lawn mower for stability. I had four shots and I got two of the targets and my other shots were just above the targets.
Jeff said that I’m a natural hunter and I should keep practising. I would love to have a gun or even a toy gun to practise with but I don’t think I’ll be allowed to have one ( I’m don’t sure what mum and dad will do if I got given one!) We had such a great time with Jeff and Lindi and Tyler and Eva. Then it was off to New York City……..
New York City is amazing!!! I think the dancers and singers in Central Park were astounding. There was an entertainment stage and the kids singing on stage were the best kids I have ever seen sing. The dancers were wonderful, one of then did a back flip over a boy who was about 1m high!!! There is such a lot to do, I think you’ll have to spend 6 months to see all of New York City!!! I highly recommend it. New York City has the biggest Lego shop in the world, it has the biggest M&M’s shop in the world, it also has a very big Hershey’s shop. There are about 100 to 200 theatres and Cinemas in New York City. Chicago style pizza and New York style pizza are the best pizzas in the world!!!
I’ve always wanted to go to NYC ever since I was 5 yrs old and I’m 11 now. It is so pretty and I really wanted to see the monuments like the Statue of Liberty.
I really enjoyed Times Square where there were screens on all the buildings with commercials and little films on them. There were so many screens. We also went to see Cinderella the musical which was very cool. Baba stood in line for a very long time to get 1/2 price tickets and we met him later.
We also went to Central Park and I really really liked that. There was so much singing and magic shows and dancing and busking – which is a way to get money.
In NYC we stayed with some Servas host people who were very nice – actually they lived in New Jersey but it was only 1/2 hour by bus to NYC. The lady’s name is Isa and she’s from Germany and the man’s name is Paul – he makes shapes and features out of balloons. They had such nice food and we ate on the back verandah. I really liked her boiled eggs cause they were perfect and not overcooked.
My favourite thing about NYC was the pretzels and pizza – so so delicious.
I made about a thousand balloon things at Paul and Isa’s house. It was so cool.
At the LEGO shop you could see on the screen what the LEGO would look like – it was so cool.
I loved the place of New York. We stayed with Paul and Isa and I loved it cause they were so fun and very kind. They let us have ice cream and we had a balloon party with Paul, making balloons and sculptures. There was even rocket balloons. I saw the Statue of liberty from on a boat. I loved Cinderella the show. It was so funny cause I’ve never seen this type of Cinderella before. The prince was very very kind to Cinderella and the Cinderella was also very kind to the prince.
I loved the Lego shop cause Lego is fun and I had $15 pocket money to spend. Kalika and I shared a Lego but we still had a bit more money left. I was very excited about Christmas because I took some photos of the Lego that I want and I’m going to send it to Santa to ask if I can maybe get it for Christmas. I didn’t have enough money to buy the jungle Lego set so Santa maybe might be able to build it or the elves might.
