My recent trip to the United States of America was an experience of a lifetime. During my stay there I visited Orlando, New York, Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
Orlando is the fifth largest city in Florida and the largest inland city of America. We visited Central Florida Ballet, Mad Cow Theatre and Orlando Shakespeare Theatre. The University of Central Florida is home to theatre lovers and attracts young artists like me from around the world.
Live shows at the Universal Studio are really very exciting. The show includes movie clips, prop and creature makeup demonstrations and gives a fascinating insight into the moviemaking process.
A stay in Florida is incomplete without a trip to the Kennedy Space Centre and NASA’s launch headquarters. I was lucky to see the launching of Atlanta-2 from my coach, a few miles away from the space centre.
Orlando Epcot Centre is divided into Future World and World Showcase. In Future World, ideas become a reality. World Showcase is a collective of pavilions and shops full of mind-blowing products, restaurants that represent the culture and cuisine of 11 countries. At night there are fireworks and a laser show. In the evening we went to the Niagara Falls. A total of 21 xenon lights each with 76 cm diameter are used to illuminate the falls in a rainbow of colours.
We also visited several lovely Indian restaurants. Next morning we enjoyed the Maid of Mist boat ride and trolley ride to the Cave of the Winds up close to the falls. Water rushes all around you and one gets drenched. We also enjoyed a visit to the Statue of Liberty in a ferry.
The other places we visited were Times Square, Ground Zero, China Town, Central Park and Empire State Building from where on a clear night one can see the spectacular New York city skyline clearly.
