Really Faburous Southwest Trip


I had an absolutely amazing experience on the Southwest trip in mid-October. I enjoyed a good deal of beautiful scenery of nature and city areas, delicious food and performances, and culture. I spent a lot of wonderful time with my friends and teachers in Santa Fe, Black Bart’s Restaurant and the Grand Canyon. I enjoyed a good deal of beautiful scenery of nature and city, delicious food and performance, and culture.
First, my one of impressive places was Santa Fe Plaza. There were brown houses and buildings made of adobe, and the doors and window frames and decorations were colorful. I like passionate red and turquoise blue color because these colors match the adobe brown color. Also, there were many gift shops in the Plaza, and we could find a lot of native Americans gifts such as dream catchers, pottery, fabrics, unique fashion accessories, dishes, and traditional clothes. I bought a dreamcatcher, some pretty earrings, a ring, and postcards, so I was very happy. It rained at night but still the city scenery was pretty. I really love that place.

Another amazing place was Black Bart’s Restaurant. The servers were really kind and funny. I ate bread with honey butter, chicken, and vanilla ice cream. Of course, the dishes were great, but the performance was also wonderful. The servers sang some famous songs on stage. Their voices were powerful and beautiful, so I was moved by them. When we leave there, the staffs started to sing ‘A Whole New World’ which we requested, so we stopped walking and listened to them. It was such a lovely time.



Finally, I was moved by Grand Canyon. When I first saw the view of the sunset, I was speechless because it was absolutely gorgeous. I felt alive. The sky was a gradation of deep blue and madder red, and the rocks turned to orange and red. I had never seen such a really stunning vast landscape. I want my family and people all over the world to see this view. We took a lot of pictures. On our free day at the Grand Canyon, we went around some beautiful view spots. Everywhere I looked, it impressed me.
In conclusion, I had an amazing experience on the Southwest trip especially the scenery of nature and the city, delicious food and fantastic service, and amazing Grand Canyon. I will never forget these memories. I want to visit these places again.

My Unbelievable Southwest Trip

I experienced a lot of amazing things for seven days with my absolutely wonderful teachers and friends from October 15-21 and learned a lot of Southwest culture, history, and nature. For example, we went to about 12 museums and facilities, such as the Pueblo Cultural Center, the University of Mexico, and some churches in New Mexico and Arizona. Therefore, I kept busy on the trip, but it became something I have never experienced because everything I saw was new to me. There are three things that especially impressed me.
First, I was attracted to the buildings of New Mexico. These were really different from Spokane, Boston, or Washington D.C. For example, I went to Old Town in Albuquerque. Then I noticed that almost all the buildings were made of adobe. Adobe means mud brick in Spanish, so the buildings I saw were brown and some parts were air blue. I felt comfortable there. I also saw a plaza and a church which were adobe style buildings. The plaza is the most central part in Old Tow…
