"Tivoli Gardens: Walt Disney actually went there for inspiration."

So in Denmark we went to the world’s oldest working amusement park. Tivoli Gardens. Walt Disney actually went there for inspiration when he was constructing his Disneyland parks. It was only Bella and I who went on the rides, and we had a great time. The first ride we went on was a swing sort of ride where they strapped us in, and then a crane lifted us up into the air. My guess is that we were about 50 or more feet above where we started. You could see the whole park, which

"Then Paris decided to pay a visit to the Queen of Sparta, Helen..."

Here is the story of the great city of Troy, which fell to the hands of the Greek empire. Paris, son of King Priam, caused this war. He took Helen of Troy, then Helen of Sparta, to his homeland. King Menelaus was furious, so he called his brother, Agamemnon, ruler of Greece, to help him destroy troy (lol). They succeeded, and it was Paris’s fault. How this child lived for more than 20 years, I have no idea. Paris had Hector solve all of his problems, which I’m guessing Hector

"Go to Greece and make yourselves fat from food, because one taste and you’ll want to eat until

Let’s talk about cooking. In a stranger’s apartment, you have no idea where anything is in the kitchen, whereas in your own, you know where every spice, pot, pan, and plate is supposed to go. Then you think about the food you’re going to make, and how it will taste. When you try it, it tastes different to how you thought it would taste. And then you think, “Wait, this food is not at all like what I eat at home”. I loved cooking in Greece, and if you get the chance as well, I

"We went to go see the sea lions in kayaks (we were in the kayaks, not them.)"

By Marco Richter de Medeiros So my parents decided to take us on a road trip around Argentina. I was not the happiest child in the world. If you may not know already, I hate road trips. Being cramped into a car fit for only 5 people is not very fun, especially when each day of driving takes over 3 hours. The car was not the biggest, but we planned to change the packing situation so that we each had more space. The car had a fold up backseat that I sat in. Some of the places t

"I was the first eleven year old boy to do the cooking class."

By Marco Richter de Medeiros I love Peruvian food. It’s a wide variety of different styles of food coming as 1. My favorite was alpaca meat. It's like beef but ten times better. I've never eaten alpaca before so I'm glad I liked it. It was like nothing I've ever had before. So juicy and tasty. It was like eating a ball of happiness. The corn is very different from that in the USA. The kernels are much bigger and the corn itself is smaller. I think it's better than the corn in

"Isaias is our guide for most of the Peru trip. I like him. He's cool."

by Marco Richter de Medeiros Chinchero is a lot different from what you would see in the United States, especially Fall City. The architecture is much different. Where we build with wood, they built with concrete and stone. Chinchero people dress very differently than us. The women wear traditional dresses with fancy hats. The men wear traditional drawstring pants and ponchos over their body. The market was different as well. Either it wasn't a busy day or the market just sim
