Crossing the Bridge to my Dreams!

My adventure here in the United States of America has become a great experience that truly made me a better person than I was before. Now after spending and making memories for almost four months, I will not regret being in this amazing country.
I’ve always wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. I was truly amazed at its gigantic construction and was impressed with the skills that people have put together to make the impossible, possible.
During that day, I was captured by the beauty of San Francisco and instantly fell in love with that city. Many people came to visit and see the bridge and I was so glad to know that it’s not just me who wanted to take a picture with the historic bridge, but Americans from other states want to see it too!
I was able to see Alcatraz which was a famous prison. It was pretty cool to know learn such interesting history.
After a long drive going to San Francisco, we went to the Fisherman’s Wharf. I definitely tried their crab chowder and it was delicious and perfect for cold weather. We strolled around the area and saw so many people. I saw an amazing one-man band, and was impressed so I gave him a tip for such a wonderful performance. There was also a man that paints just using a paint brush and seeing him do his artwork live was such a great experience! We also went to the famous Pier 39 and roamed around the area and saw so many sea lions.
I could never ever forget my experience here in America, and I am so thankful that this opportunity was given to me. And I wish that a lot more people could be able to make their dreams possible. I will cherish this life changing experience forever!
