State Parks, freeways,

1 and other things I love about the US

J enny Clar k , an Australian mom and college student who lives in California, says the US isn't just OK-it's paradise. These are some ofher reasons

Coffee

American cups ofcoffee are very big! A small cup of coffee in the US is like a large cup ofcoffoe in Australia. Ifyou're in a hurry, you go to a drive-through and buy coffee from your car. It's so easy!

State Parks

California has 278 state parks, and they are beautiful. On the weekends, I bring my family to a state park in my area. We explore the forest, find small animals, and enjoy the tall redwood trees.

Malls

I love shopping, and in the US, the malls are very big. People walk around and shop for hours. US malls have many different stores, and the salespeople are friendly and help you find things.

Fall

I love the fall weather in the US. A good fall day in California is cool, but not too cold. I also love the trees. They change from green to yellow, red, and brown.

Freeways

I prefer the roads in the US. The freeways

are very fast, and in California they have a lot of car lanes. It's really easy to drive from

one place to another.

Theme Parks

Theme parks are very popular in the US, and we live near the Great America Theme Park. My children like the rides and water slides. Sometimes the Iines for the rides are long, but that's OK. We need rest!

Red Robin

Red Robin is

a restaurant

that has great hamburgers.

I don't eat meat, but I like the french

fries and lemonade at Red Robin. I think the fried cheese sticks are fantastic, but sometimes they aren't on the menu. Maybe that's because they aren't very healthy!

Our uniform is OK. I like the colors, gray and red. The only things I don't like are the tie, because it's difficult to put on. and the skirt, because I prefer pants. I think uniforms are a good idea. Everybody looks the same, and it's easy to get dressed in the morning - I don't need to think about what to wear.

::Z Our uniform is dark pants and a white nylon top. kind of like a nurse's uniform. We can't wear anything over the uniform. so it's cold in the winter. and it gets dirty very easily because it's white. I'm not against uniforms, but my

uniform just isn't practical!
