    The clouds turned a menacing grey and, as usual in Britanny, it began to rain. We quickly carried the long table from the garden into the Mayor’s garage where our dinner party would commence, and the Mayor’s wife brought out plates and cups and appetizers which we eagerly spread along the 17 places...

    My family and I went to Cozumel, Mexico this past year for vacation. I had been there before, but when I was only a child. It has been my favorite place in the world since I first went there.

It was how my family and I spent our Christmas, which was also my older sister’s birthday. But it was a dream we had all shared since we were little, when we made hundreds of situations where we met our Lola, or grandmother.

       My grandfather, radio receiver affixed to his ear, relayed the coordinates. Terrible and terrific, formations of B-17 “Flying Fortresses” streaked across the war torn sky of a nearly defeated Nazi Germany.  The bombers’ prey, the cultured city of Dresden, seemed unsuspecting and eerily...

    Okay, so I think after reading this you all might think this not true but all the details of this trip is a reality. It all started on 23rd of June my mom and I decided to go to Virginia to visit our cousin. We took a Delta flight at Hobby Airport, which was one of the worst mistakes ever. Why?...
