for the next three days we will-
day one-Máncora
day two-Puerto Maldonado
day three- Machu Picchu

day 1-
when we woke up today we were so used to relaxing that we decided to go to Máncora. Máncora is the place to see along the Peruvian coast. it is Peru’s best sandy beach and stretches for several kilometers in the sunniest region of the country. we had a great time swimming and all the people around the looked very happy. we ate my different types of food there.

day 2-
when we woke up today we were so tan and tired that we decided to go to Puerto Maldonado. Puerto Maldonado is the capital of the southern jungle, has busy central streets, many tooting mototaxis. this city brought us back to earth, because of its busy city life, what we had left behind nine countries ago was all brought back to us in a few moments. we saw beggars around, we saw nice cars, we saw bad cars, we basically saw what we were about to go back to in a day.
today we went to Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. and has amazing panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery and that's what made it even more fun. we walked around took many pictures. we then ate food and went back to the hotel.

Peru was a great place, it was a very busy place but the people there made sure they had time to for there family.
Peru was our last country to visit. we spent so much time away from our family but that made us feel like it made us closer to our family. we have seen many people and saw how happy they are to be alive. this made us remind us about how blessed we are.
I am glade we are going home now but I would love to tavel the world again, and what made it better was how I traveld with my sister, Aleeza, who not only is my sister but also my best friend.

for the next three days we will
day 1- Berlin Wall
day 2- Europa-Park
day 3- Topography of Terror

day one-
today we are going to the berlin wall. our guide told us that between 1949-61, around 2.5 million East Germans had fled from East to West Germany many people were skilled workers, professionals, and intellectuals. if they left the economy of the east Germany would get destroyed. for this reason East Germany built a barrier to close off East Germans' access to West Berlin. after the fall of the wall in November 9 1989, the wall has been decorated by many beautiful graffiti and many messages. it was a great place to go with a younger sibling since the younger generations should know about the horrific events that have happened in history.
after viewing the wall we decided to go eat some German sausages. and then go back to the hotel and get ready for tomorrow which is the Europa- Park.

day two-
today we got up early so we can get dresses because we are going to Europa- Park. which is a theme park. is the most fun! there were 12 fast roller coasters and many other attractions and places to eat. we tried to go to all the rides but we also wanted to make it in time for the ice skating show. the was so beautiful how the girls skated to gracefully. we got to the park at 9 am and left the park at 9 pm. it was amazing we ate many things like funnel cakes and other things like that. we were so tired when we got to the hotel but tomorrow isn't any easier since we are going to go the Topography of Terror.


day three-
we woke up and got on the bus. once we got to the Topography of Terror, we got our tickets and got ready to experience all the things we had learnt about in school. we found out that Between 1933 and 1945 this was the center for the national-socialist terror, Gestapo with its own prison, the SS headquarters, the SS Security Service (SD) and the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (Main Office for State Security). it was such a historical and amazing experience. the museum was such a great place it made both my sister and I very happy about how this horrible place was preserved and made into a beautiful and awe inspiring place to go. it was completely worth the while and money.


Germany is a very beautiful and with history in every street corner. it was such a great experience. I would come here again.

next up is Hungary!
