My first Impression in United States

Posted on: 29 September 2017 BY: EAmaral

My first impressions here in United States were first off all is seeing crowding people, we landed in the airport in San Fransisco & DC and there were many people from different backgrounds, not only because it is the airport but even in the city there are many people too.Second thing that impressed me was the brightness, there are big screens in many places and the lights on the streets and buildings are all so bright especially during the night. Third is the beautiful, tall and big houses and buildings, well structured and colored. Most of the views here are beautiful and some are breathtaking.
The American people are nice, straight forward, flexible, discipline and professional and I found these impressive.
I like staying here at Springfield Missouri, small city with nice and quite religious people I can say and I am looking forward to explore the United States.
