My trip to the USA - Las Vegas (rozprávanie)
My trip to the USA started on 29th.of July. In the morning I ate breakfast and then checked if all my things were packed. When I was absolutely sure that I had everything I would need for surviving, I left my house. My father drove me to the airport in Bratislava. Flight to Los Angeles airport took about 13 hours. In the plane I was thinking about my new host family, life in the USA and other things. I was so impatient to see my new family. After I got out from the Airport, my English teacher drove me to the area in Los Angeles where I was supposed to meet my new family. I was so tired and happy that I’m finally at the place. My host family came to pick me up. They picked me up and drove me to my new house. I was happy as a sand boy when I saw the whole family. My new host brother was 18 and his sister 17 years old. On the next day we decided that it would be a good idea to check some cool places. I suggested going to see the Hollywood. But my brother came with much better idea - Las Vegas. ,,Viva Las Vegas˝. We all agreed with this place. Bright neon lights shine through the night in Las Vegas, Nevada, advertising casinos, hotels, clubs, bars, and other businesses. Las Vegas was a small town until gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel changed the city’s character forever by constructing its first lavish hotel-casino in 1945. Now known as the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” Las Vegas attracts tourists from all over the world. Las Vegas (Nevada), city in southern Nevada. The seat of Clark County, Las Vegas is located in the Las Vegas Valley, a desert surrounded by the Spring Mountains and the Sierra Nevada. Las Vegas serves as the center of one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Its population has multiplied by a factor of 30 since the 1940s—more than that of any other major American city. Las Vegas is renowned for tourism, gaming, a dry and vigorous climate, and an assortment of indoor and outdoor recreational activities. After some time of preparation we packed our things and were ready for our trip. The journey was very long and exhausting for all of us. On the way we stopped at Wendy’s to eat some lunch. And finally after 10 hours of driving I saw some lights in the dark. As we were getting closer to the town lights were getting much stronger. Finally we were there the atmosphere was great. Streets full of casinos, neons, lights and people. When we got to our hotel room we were shocked by the view from our windows.
All around us were many hotels, streets, bars, casinos but in the distance there were only desert and darkness. In the morning we went to explore the city. When we came to the maquette of Eiffel tower it was breathtaking view. Next attraction we went to see was The Luxor resort, with a 10-story replica of Egypt’s Great Sphinx and 30-story replica of an Egyptian pyramid. It is one of the Las Vegas’s extravagant fantasy worlds. Other hotels feature a roller coaster atop a skyscraper and a replica of a volcano that erupts. We went on one roller coaster called ,,New York“ and it was marvellous. After the ride we were so hungry that we went to Red Loobster for Lunch. Food was really delicious and rich. After lunch we went to Specialty museums includeing the Liberace Museum (a museum dedicated to the flamboyant 20th-century Las Vegas performer) and the Guinness World of Records Museum. Other museums in Las Vegas include the Nevada State Museum and Historical Society, which features exhibits on Nevada’s history from 12,000 bc to 1950; the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, which houses wildlife and dinosaur exhibits; and the Las Vegas Art Museum. After this cultural destruction we went back to our hotel. We ate our dinner and went to casino. If you are under 21 you can walk in casino`s only on marked carpets. Otherwise you will be kicked out. So we just passed throught the casino. It was late night when we came back to our hotel from the town. It was the best day of our lives.
My opinion of this trip is wery high.The weather was great the people were incredible and I´m very thankfull my host family for taking mee to such beautifull city.
