Dear Miss Allen’s class,
The first thing I want to tell you is about my going to Thailand. It was fun. Phuket was better than Bangkok because it had a beach, a pool and a really good snack bar. It was awesome. The worst of my worries was getting some water in my mouth. The Bangkok airport closed four hours after I left because of flooding. I thought, “what if our flight had been four hours later.” That would have been horrible. Well, at least I had a good time. I went on an elephant ride. At the pool, a baby elephant kissed me twice! You might think that’s gross, but it was cool. Did you know I got to stick my head out of the window of a tuk tuk, which is a kind-of three wheeled motorcycle and in the back there is a canopy and you sit under it.
One Thursday, on Thanksgiving, we went to Hong Kong Disneyland. Quin, my brother, liked Space Mountain. I liked the most a Buzz Lightyear ride where you zapped the aliens. It was different from Disneyworld in the US because it was only the Magic Kingdom, but it was still fun! We watched a show called Philharmagic. It’s a 3D show and Mickey was the conductor. Donald gets lost in all these places and at the end you see Donald stuck in a wall behind you.
One day at Kowloon Walled City Park, we found a bike rental place. I got a BMX. I don’t have a bike here, but I do back in the US. I miss it. At the Kowloon Park there was a blue circle that had sides that were diagonal; it was coooool.
I have a friend, Joseph. I met him when we were going on a hike with his parents and he was coming with us. He’s cool, good at climbing and a good friend. We went on a bunch of hikes with them, and our favorite was when we went to a place where we used ropes to climb up a cliff. The cliff was about 10 feet tall. It was so cool. Everyone went rappelling except me. I tried, but I was just too scared. Oh, well.
Do you have snow yet? It’s still like summer here. Bye!
