I could still remember the day when these horrendous attacks hit the United States of America. I was 13 years old and was playing with my cousins when I saw the breaking news on the television. I was confused on what is happening to the world as I watched the twin towers burn and fall down. It’s like watching a movie in real life. My family was also worried since my eldest brother and his family were about to move and migrate to US soon that time. Since then, I became interested in world’s current events, I even watched all documentaries in Nat. Geo about 9/11 (almost!).
I grabbed the opportunity to drop by to Los Angeles while I’m in California. I travelled almost 8 hours from the east coast just to get to Cali, and thought I should make the most out of the trip! From San Francisco, I took a flight to LA where I spent 1 night to have a glimpse to the famous city of the stars – Hollywood!
Fort McHenry, in Baltimore, Maryland, is a historical American coastal star-shaped fort best know for its role in the War of 1812, when it successfully defended Baltimore Harbor from an attach by the British navy in Chesapeake Bay September 13-14, 1814. It was first built in 1798 and was used continuously by U.S. armed forces through World War I and by the Coast Guard in World War II. It was designated a national park in 1925.
I was so desperate to see some snow during my trip to America (who does not want to see the snow if you live in a country were 40 degrees is a normal thing). Because of that, my friends and I thought that heading to north of California seems a good idea. We drove for about 3 hours from San Francisco and what waited for us was, Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is a freshwater lake that is located at the border of California and Nevada at a surface of 6,000 feet.
