Today is our first day in New York. It is SO much fun! First we took a plane, it was my first plane ride ever. I felt sick so I took a gravol before our second flight out of Toronto. When we landed in New York I saw the “Trump” plane, and barely got a picture for my dad because we were going so fast. After we grabbed our luggage we took a bus to the hotel and checked in. I get to room with Amirah, Michele and Stephanie! After dropping our things off we went to see Ground Zero. It hadn’t hit me that we were in New York until I saw that. We then took a ride on the Staten Island Ferry, and saw the Statue of Liberty. I got to take some really good pictures. We saw the NYPD and the FDNY. We went to Broadway tonight and saw “Wicked”, it was AMAZING! Glinda (GA-LIN-DA) was my favourite she was so funny and stylish. Everyone was crying when it was over. I was able to buy a t-shirt and an official program, and take pictures with all the performers. To eat after the show we went to Howard Johnson’s for a midnight snack, and met a REAL New Yorker, she was in high school like us, and really cool!
