Our 2004 US Trip

September 06, 2008

(I know this comes late..)A few years ago, GOD has blessed us with an opportunity to experience America, which stands true to its name ‘the American dream’ I guess for most citizens of all world continents, even for Europeans. Our point of entry was the vast Philadelphia International Airport which is a city by itself, bustling with shops of diverse natures, foodshops and you name it. Then we flew off to our destination which is San Francisco which was home to us for a little more than a week. Naturally we savoured everything of the enchanting city by the bay from the fisherman’s wharf and crookedest street, the limousine ride (5 $ per head around the Union square downtown) , the Golden gate bridge (overlooking the Escape to Alcatraz prison ) we walked the entire stretch just because we didn’t know there was a service we can ---) the souvenir items Tshirts the most affordable and popular choice, pier 39 . the cablecar ride downtown, the white botanical garden. We also visited Disneyland Los Angeles , the Pebble beach resort in Monterey where we had a very wonderful picnic with our hosts then the big fleamarket and the very beautiful Napa Valley wineries in Sacramento, where we also spent 2 nights ( in the vacation house of our hosts) who also accompanied us next to Las Vegas Nevada (more or less 4 hr drive) to experience the big hotels nightlife and casinos etc. During this brief American rendezvous we had the opportunity to stay at the houses of relatives who are all very generous (financially and otherwise) . The last stop of our trip was San Diego (lighthouse ) which boasts of elegant and palatial residences. The thing to point out is that each of the extravagant houses of the different Californian subdivisions, doesn’t have protective iron window grills or secure gates to protect against burglary I asked my relative the reason for it, she said that there is no burglar in their communities, notwithstanding the extravagance of the houses. Not only do most families own not less than 2 cars or vans but they also own 2 houses. For anyone eyeing for real estate properties I would recommend to checkout the HomesAndLand website which offers very impressive homes and practical financial advices and solutions.
