“At the end of my exchange year my host family has taken me on a road trip. In two weeks we have driven from Missouri through southern states all the way to California, stayed a day on the Ocean Beach and returned through the Northern states. It was a wonderful and diverse adventure where I saw many things, most notable, Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.
The photo was taken in June 2000, somewhere along our Journey in a space museum with my host brother Dusty.”
