Barack Obama wrote now history like a first Afro American President in the history of the United States of America, in a country where unhappy until today racism and discrimination are monsters who cannot be exterminated.

But Obama come to give us hope and try to make us to think about the world where we are living and about the fact, like himself said “YES WE CAN”, to change our destiny and in that way to give to the future generations a place with justice, more solidary and especially less destructive.

I beginn today my trip to America. I have a lot of dreams and I think in America they can come true.
Many said that America is the country of the opportunities, and I hope that´s true.
I am also a little bit afraid because I don´t know anybody there and of course I think will be not easy the first days.
Now I pack my baggage and of course with a lot of emotions and strange feelings because I will leave my country. But I need to do it, the economy is not good here, and maybe in America I can have more chances to grow up.

It was very hard until now, after we left our baggages, we climbed the stairs to the Great Hall for medical and legal examinations.

The first test for all the immigrants became known as the “six second medical exam.” As the immigrants climbed the stairs to the Great Hall, doctors stood at the top and watched. They were looking for anyone having difficulty coming up the steps. If a medical problem or disability was suspected, one of seventeen different chalk marks was put on the person’s clothing. They were then sent for a full physical examination. If they weren’t marked, they went on to wait in the Great Hall.

That was a little bit hard, because of course some of this people are not alow to come into America, and they must go back to their countries.

After the medical examinations we waited in the Great Hall for the interviews with legal inspectors.
They asked me a lot of things, for example where I come from?, where I pretend to live in America?, If I had criminal actions in the past and so on… because Inspectors rejected any immigrant with a criminal record.
Well was ok, but of course sometimes I was nervious because the actitud of the inspectors were strange.
Happines my documentation were all ok, I showed my passport and my visa, and everything was ok 🙂
After I change some money, because Is not allow to enter to America with less to 20 dollars.

And now I have the permition to go to New York and I feel so happy, because that ist the beginnen of many changes in my life. I hope that here in America, I can construct a big future for my life 🙂

I will like to do a lot of tings before I die. Some incredible and crazy things. For example I will like to visit the Great wall of China, first because I have not visited even China and I think can be a great experience. Of course is always good to know new cultures and new people, but I think the great wall of China is one thing you must know before you die, is one of the biggest meaningful monuments in the world.
