We are starting the Southeast Region. Our class saw a video about the Southeast and I learned new things from it. One of the facts that was pretty interesting to me is that the farmers grow a lot of crops there, such as sugarcane, peas, beans, tobacco, cotton, etc. that become cash crops. The Southeast has a lot of coil, so that means that coal mining business is well developed. That job looks very dangerous, because if there is gas in the ground, it could explode. Also, it has very little air.
I already knew that there are a lot of wetlands in the Southeast. Everglades is one of those wetlands that I saw few times when I was in Florida.
I have been to the Southeast many times, but just one state – Florida. I have visited five cities while in Florida: Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Sarasota, Tampa, and Orlando. Each city had something that stood out to me.
We went to Salvador Dali museum in Tampa. He is a very famous artist who lived in the 20th century. His artwork and sculptures are really beautiful and unique.
There is a bridge that is called Skyway when you drive from Tampa to Sarasota and back. At night the bridge lights up just like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Every child knows what Orlando has to offer. It is a home to Disneyworld and Universal Studios. There is not much to say about it, besides that it is so much FUN to visit these parks.
In Miami I liked walking along the famous South Beach that has small trendy shops, expensive restaurants and bars with live music that are outside. Also, there is another place in Miami that is very cute – Bayside Marketplace.
Every time when in Sarasota we visit St. Armands Circle. It is an island of small boutiques, fine restaurants and even small art galleries. One of those galleries has a few artwork pieces of Salvador Dali.
There is one restaurant which I love that has two locations, one in Miami and one in Ft. Lauderdale. It is called OPA! They have beautiful belly dancers that dance right on your table and sometimes they invite few of the customers to join them. I danced on the table once too.
Writing this makes me want to go there again. Lucky me I am going there again this May. See you next time.
