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.

I am already in America. But we arrived to the Ellis Island, they said to us, that they will control somethings and after we can still our trip to New York, we must left our suitcases here. I hope that takes not much time, because I am already tired.

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 🙂
