Surprise America

Freeway in Los Angeles

America is such a large country. When I was 12 years old, I visited America. This was the first time for me to visit a foreign country. There were many different points from Japan. So, I would like to introduce some points.

I was surprised at the cars. Because there were a lot of cars, and there were wide traffic lanes. When I was taken in a car by my uncle in America, I opened the car window. Then, I closed this at once because the traffic noise was large! And there were many Japanese cars.

I heard that between America and Japan is different about traffic rules. For example, be careful about school buses. In Japan, if the school bus runs, we can pass it. But, in America, be careful about school buses. We are forbidden to pass it. We have to slow down.

And in America, we don't need to stop in front of a railroad crossing. If you stop, you will be honked at by a car horn. Is it true, Mr. Gary??

I have a driver's license. But I don't want to drive in America. Maybe I will cause an accident. ):

In the future, I want to visit your hometown!!
