  wybaczcie za demme piosenki ale takie byly tylko dostepne...

Tak wiec,  w moich ulubionych laduje Wielki Kanion i San Francisco.

Wielka klapa: Los Angeles- bardzo niebezpieczne miasto, wiekosc ludzi tam to meksykanie, w niektorcyh czesciach miasta nawet sie nie idzie porozumiec po angielsku,  napisy na sklepach tylko po hiszpansku...

Wycieczka udana, kasy poszlo sporo. Mamy wiele wspomnien i uczuc ktore przyniosly nam niektore momenty, ktorych nie zapomne do konca zycia. Warto jezdzic zwiedzac, ogladac i doswiadczac. Kazda pozdroz mnie czegos nauczyla. Mam nadzieje ze jeszcze wiele przedemna.

Navy Ball -Annaopolis

W miesiacu zwanym kwiecien Academia Navy, w Annaopolis organizuje od ostanich 50 lat co roczny bal. Procedura wyglada nastepujaco: kupujesz bilet - koszt 10/15 $ w tym roku 14.5$, wiele osob bookoje rowniez hotel, jaki zamiar mialysmy i my, ale ze pieniedzy brak po naszym tripie postanowilysmy jechac w nocy spowrotem, co zreszta okazalo sie bardzo trafna decyzja, Ball trwal do 12.45 a do Annapolis mamy 2 godziny drodzi. Hotel to koszt okolo 150$ i mozna go rozbic na pare osob...ale szczerze mowic strata kasy. Fajnie jest to jechac obejrzec ale tylko raz. Wszystko super zorganizowane, na poczatku uroczysta akademia, wystepy, rozpoczecie balu, jedzenie i picie...Ok, ale co z tego jak sredni wiek tych wszystkich chlopakow to 18/19 lat i przewaznie sa bardzo niscy. Troche sie tam czulam staro i szkoda mi bylo dziewczyn ktore wybulily na kiecki 200$ i na hotel nastepne tyle...

Pozatym  Annaopolis, Naval Academy i caly campus jest bardzo ladny, niestety nie mialysmy duzo czasu na dluzsze zwiedzanie.
