THE JOURNEY OF PRITI LALLOOBHAI
COME AND JOIN THIS EXPERIENCE WITH ME!!!!!!!!
DAY 1: HOUSTON
My day in Houston was just unbelievable. It began with a visit to the NASA Space Center, the Official Visitors Center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. It is originally known as the Manned Spacecraft Center. It’s a place where we could experience space from a different point of view. It’s one of the only places on Earth where visitors can see astronauts train for their missions, touch a real moon rock and take a behind-the-scenes tour of NASA. The world class exhibits, attractions and hands-on activities tell the story of America’s manned space flight program, give guests an out-of-this-world experience like no other. This place to me is very unique because it is a place where we could explore space without actually being in space. It is very important because that's where they launch the space missions from. My very favorite was the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory where the astronauts would train for their mission in an Olympic sized swimming pool. I better hurry now got to go the Houston Dynamo soccer game.
I finally got tickets for the soccer game of Houston Dynamo. The Houston Dynamo is an American Major League Soccer team based in Houston, Texas. Today its Houston Dynamo against Chicago Fire. They have two nicknames , the Dynamo and the Orange Crush. They have quite a pre-game warm-up routine where the crowd gets really festive and excited with loud chants and the singing of the local "anthem". The Houston Dynamos almost scored off a free-kick. The entire crowd went "aah!!!" When they finally scored in the second half the place went wild. Just then fireworks shot up and it was incredible. As soon as the fireworks lit up everyone started taking pictures which is why I could only see flashes all around. I enjoyed the experience so much that I almost felt like a Houstonian. The stadium was unique to me because of it's special architecture. It is as I discovered one of the newer stadiums in the league. My favorite was the fireworks and the cheerleaders. This was important because people with different cultures unite to support the team. I better go hurry and head to the Museum of Natural Science!!!!!
