Feb.7.2017.

This is the first day of my journey.San Francisco,the most important research and development base of innovative and high technology in the world,has 850 thousand people,including 150 thousand Chinese people. It is famous for its iconic Golden Gate Bridge and its unique culture and geographical conditions. Beautiful weather and waterfront views await visits as well.

Our first destination in SFO is the Golden Gate Bridge.That's a really huge engineering.But today's weather wasn't very good,the whole bridge was hided in fog. But you can still feel the magnificence of this bridge.

Then we went to the Palace of Fine Art.This palace has  Ancient Rome architectural style. The whole palace is consisted of the main buildings and a beautiful lake.

It's a pity that I heard of SFO is one of the headstream of Thrash Metal.Exodus and many thrash metal bands born in there.It seems that SFO has very rich heavy metal culture in some documentaries but I just can't feel anything about heavy metal.

After a two-hour-range of driving,we arrived at Stanford University.We were a little late because of the traffic jam.There is no real boundary  streets and schools in America,schools locate beside streets naturally.


Stanford was established in 1891,cover an area of 8000 acres.Stanford has very beautiful buildings with retro architecture style.It's funny that you almost don't have to communicate with people in English because Chinese people are almost everywhere in Stanford,including students and tourists and everyone is speaking Chinese.Because of the time limited,we just took a few photos


Then we went to the Intel company.We visited its history museum,knowing the process of Intel's development and some details about modern technology.


At last we went to UC Berkeley.It's one of my favourite universities in the world.Berkeley is an inventigative university and it's the first university of UC.The whole school is very big so we spent an hour in visiting a quarter of the whole school.


Today is one of our group members' birthday. We brought her a birthday cake and had a birthday party.It's really a meaningful day.

Today’s trip was went to the charming Los Angeles. The Disneyland Park, Hollywood and the Universal Studios were waiting us. We went there by bus so it needed to take several hours. On the way of the trip, we visited the Danish village, it is 130 miles far from the LA. It’s a pocket-size and simple town with the typically the Nordic scenery. There are many photographically Danish buildings, windmills, foods, wine and arrware.


We arrived in LA in the evening, we were all very tired. But tomorrow, it will be pretty good, cause we will go to Disneyland Park.


Feb.10.2017

The Disneyland Park in California has two theme parks,the Disneyland Park and the  Disney's California Adventure Park.Today we visited the Disney's California Adventure Park.This theme park consists of seven parts,Hollywood Land,Grizzly Peak,Paradise Pier,Cars Land,"a bug's land",Pacific Wharf and Buena Vista Street.

Generally speaking,the recreational facilities from Disneyland have nothing different from those in China.But the facilities in Disneyland are more professional and detailed.Every character in the scene just like what it like in the movie.Every modal just like a true human.

I heard that another theme park is more interesting and amazing. The park we visit is for little kids.And because of the time limited, we missed the fireworks show.That was a pity,maybe next time I will visit another park.

The Fast and the Furious,Harry Potter and Jurassic Park,all these successful mov-ies have a same film production company.And today we arrived at the dreamland of millions of movie fans,the Universal Studios.

First we went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to explore the mysteries of Hogwarts castle. And then we took on a sightseeing bus of Studio Tour.With comedian/video host Jimmy Fallon, we learnd the secrets of Hollywood moviemaking. Plus, we rode through the world’s largest 3-D experience on King Kong 360 3-D created by Peter Jackon. And held on for Studio Tour’s grand finale, Fast & Furious---Surpercharged. 

We also visited the Transformers The Ride-3D, fusing photo-realistic 3D HD media and elaborate flight simulation technology with cutting edge physical and special effects. 

The Revenge of The Mummy The Ride, a terrifying thrill ride full of ghastly creatures that uses Linear Induction Motors (LIM) Techonolgy to catapult rider deep into the heart of the film franchise at 45 MPH.

The Jurassic Park The Ride, part expedition, part heart-pounding water ride. Face off against “living dinosaurs”, including a 50-foot waterfall.

Finally, we entered the world of The Walking Dead, with the “soldier” ’s cover, we beat with the zombies and escaped from danger.

Feb.13.2017

From now on,we have to start a study life by a definite date of four days.There a-re four kinds of lesson,SAT reading,SAT math,SAT grammar and SAT essay.The first class began with a test and from the reading test, I knew there's still a lot of  knowledge of reading I haven't mastered.

We went to the UCLA afternoon. UCLA is the cradle of talents of the American commercial finance, high-technology industry, film art and so many major,  the national university of the most widely in the field of cutting-edge talent cultivation.

After the grammar class,we went to the Santa Barbara to see the spectacular bea-ch and the end of the 66th highway.

The beach stretchs to the horizon, sunlight shines through the light clouds,with t-he mews,reflect on the endless sea.The sea keep extending and connect with sky. That's real"no line between sky and sea".A huge trestle lead to the sea,bear an a-musement park. Near the beach is a big business street.

Postscript

Finally, the 14-day winter camp ended. In these days, I expended my horizon, improved my speaking English, experienced the foreign culture, appreciated spectacular scenery and buildings, learned the details of the SAT test and application of American universities. I also associated with good company, and I will treasure every moment of this winter camp forever. 

Two years later, I will study in the United States. Which university I will get in still not sure. But the three universities we visited---Stanford, BC Berkeley and UCLA will always be my goals and I will work hard for them.
