Hearst Castle

My friend,  my mom,  and I went to Hearst Castle in Mar.

It was very big and beautiful,  But it was not like the castle’s that we see on TV,

The view is very beautiful.

He wasn’t Catholic,  but he has a lot of Catholic art,  In his office he had lampshades made from parchment,  Parchment is vellum.

The indoor pool was undid the outdoor  tennis courts,  On the tennis court’s there were little holes to let the sunlight filter down into the pool area.

The outdoor pool was under construction so there was no water in it.

And there was also no water in the toilets because of the drought.  We had to use the porta-potty that was interesting.

   

         

San Francisco 

My friend,  my mom,  and I went to San Francisco.

There were many poor people on the streets,  so I was little anxious.

We decided to tour the city on a double decker tour bus.  We could hop on and off.  Our first hop off was  Chinatown,  There were many Chinese people,  On three different corners three older man were playing an ehru,  a Chinese violin,   The instrument looks so hard to play because it only has two strings.  I thought it was interesting that each ehru sounded different.

We also visited Old Saint Mary’s church.  There were security cameras which surprised me.  The church was a little dark,  but the art was nice.

After that we got back on the bus,  then we got off at Fisherman’s Wharf.  We had fun watching a magic show and looking at the sea lions.

Then we went to eat some famous clam chowder.  From the restaurant we had a great view of Alcatraz,

After dinner we rode the cable car back to Union Square.  We were lucky to get to hang off the side like you see in the movies. 

Have you ever been to San Francisco?  Did you leave your heart there?           

Historic California Taon

 Today my friend,  my mom,  and I want to San Juan Bautista,

It was so fun too see the old hotel call the Plaza Hotel.

And I learned that the people that visited the hotel sometimes had to  share a room or a bed with a strangers.

I was so surprised that guests had to share a bed with a strangers!

We also saw the church.  It was big,  You could see some footprints of  cats an the floor tiles.

   

My graduation 

This is my graduation.  It was very sad but fun.

My graduation was two hours,😅

After the graduation finished,  I  was interviewed by a local TV news station.

It was very long.  After that,  all of the kids and the parents went for lunch together.

Wen lunch was over all the kids went to karaoke.  It was very fun.😄

I sang by myself.  After the karaoke my friends and I got ice cream,very yummy!

Then we went back home around 6:00 so I could not see myself on the TV,  but I heard some friends saw me.
