Personal and Imaginative Writing - My Trip to Sacramento

Extracts from this document...


Zahid Rasul 14th September 2003 Personal and Imaginative Writing My Trip to Sacramento The cool fresh air blowing past you was simply amazing in Sacramento. I had three weeks of pure excitement and luxury. My holiday started with a warm lively welcoming from my cousins, at the airport. The journey from San Francisco airport to Sacramento was horrendous. The traffic was furious and there were rages and people very inpatient blasting their horns like maniacs. The noise was deafening! One thing, which I spotted straight away when I was getting into the car, was that the driver seat was on the left where as in England it is on the right. Once the traffic passed our journey began. San Francisco had beautiful scenery, this made me imagine what Sacramento would look like, and I couldn't wait to get there. Once we were on the motorway it was very relaxing and I couldn't seem to believe I was in America. My cousins and me started talking, and a little while after we headed to Sacramento I fell asleep in the car, as I got no sleep in the aeroplane. The time difference obviously got to me, but I was sure after a while I would get used to it. When I woke up I found myself in a quite area, which was peaceful, unlike the traffic in San Francisco. ...read more.


The journey was long and the traffic on the way to my cousin's wife's family was slow. Once we got there we went to the hall and the wedding begun. The wedding day was probably the best day because I had loads of fun and enjoyed myself. Once again there was plenty of dancing to the loud music but this time I didn't dance. The lights were flashing and loads of people where on the dance floor showing of their moves. The final part of the wedding was the Valima, which was also great fun. A Pakistani band was hired to sing at the Valima and they were quite good. There were a lot of people invited to the Valima and the hall was packed. The hall was beautiful and was like a palace. The reason we went to America was to go to my cousins wedding and it was very successful thanks to God. The married couple are now expecting a baby soon. And I will be a nephew! Another highlight was going to Reno; the music was full blast on the long journey and then going on the arcades, was thrilling when we got there. Only problem was it was too cramped and uncomfortable on the journey to Reno, but it was totally worth it. ...read more.


I didn't get a chance to go inside The Rock but just looking at it was bringing me thoughts in my head of the film. This memory will never be forgotten. Going along the Golden Great Bridge was also good, it was huge and there were loads of cars going along it. It was really busy that there we were going really slowly, slow as a snail. It was a great day. I had the time of my life when I went to Sacramento I enjoyed it the most because my cousin Atif who was fifteen years old hanged out with me most of the time and I also hanged out with Atif's cousin who was thirteen years old who was called Umair who was also very cool. I really want to go back to Sacramento sometime and I am sure I will have another great holiday there. It was very disappointing when we had to leave because everyone didn't want to go back to Stafford, especially me because I had such a good time. It took me a while to lighten back up and be more cheerful. And also a while to get used to the sleeping times because of the five-hour difference. We kept contact by email and we phoned each other time from time. I was missing the fantastic beautiful weather! ...read more.
