New York

By Alex .
Grade 2, New York
Country of Origin: Switzerland

I came to America in 1969. I came on vacation and I got carried away and I stayed here.

I loved Switzerland and now I really miss it. I came on a plane. I was bored, very bored. It took 9 hours to get from Switzerland to America. I didn't bring anything that's special with me.

When I got to America I had to sign a lot of papers. When I came out of the plane I saw the tallest buildings in my life. It was not very hard to get a job. I was a secretary when I got my job. I think New York City is great! And now I live with my best friend Alex.
