“We have more in common than we think”
The Las Vegas trip was one of the best trips I ever had.
We visited Las Vegas strip, were we saw all kind of people with unique skills like eating glass or contorting their bodies. We saw amazing hotels, and incredible replicas of the best monuments in the world such as the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, etc.
We went to the Grand Canyon, which looks like a painting, it’s hard to believe those beautiful colors can come together to form such a beautiful landscape.
We also went bowling and to a water park which was fun since the weather was so hot, and we also visited ICES headquarter where we could see the offices and the people working there.
The best part of the trip was not the amazing place I went to, but the people I went with, teenagers from all around the world sharing their culture with me who by now I can call them my family and I know I will always have a home in their countries, and the amazing opened minded coordinators who love to hear all the weird things we do in our countries and our funny accents.
We have more in common than we think.
