Title : Our visit to U.S.A.
We started our dream trip to U.S.A. with great anticipation and anxiety in our eyes. The flight to Raleigh with a stop over at Heathrow, London was a memorable one. We reached our son's apartment in Cary,a beautiful town in North Carolina. It was the onset of the spring season and the lovely flower in trees greeted us. We explored Cary to the fullest and enjoyed the scenic landscape of the town. Cary is surrounded by atleast seven beautiful lakes. Morning walk arround the lakes and stroll at the near by shopping centres are all a lovely experience.
Our first trip outside Cary was New York City,a city of lights & glamour.It is really a vibrant city we have ever seen. The memories of Times Square, Statue of Liberty,Central Park and St Patrick's Cathedral will remain etched forever.The cruise to Statue of Liberty was the cherry at the top. The statue is a sculpture on Liberty Island in New York. It was designed by Frederic Bartholgy dedicated on October 20 th 1886. The statue was a gift to the United States from the people of France.It is robeed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman Goddess of freedom who bears a torch and a tabulaansata upon which is inscribed the date of the American declaration of independence July 4 th 1776. The statue has become an icon of freedom of the United States.
. Our next trip to Boston was to visit our cousin.The excitement of meeting her after a long time was further enriched when we visited the Campus of Harvard, the mecca of educational Institute. We also paid a visit to MIT Campus.The icing on the cake was the trip to Boston Harbor.
. As the trip is nearing its end, I sit back to think of the memories and the experiences and hope to visit again.
