As a little girl I always had big dreams. I grew up in a small town called Wasco, which is known as “The City of Roses”. Most people haven’t heard of this town, but the moment I say, “do you know where Bakersfield is?” they usually say, “Oh yeah!” well, little ol’ Wasco is 30 minutes away from there. The only description that I am able to give to those who ask what Wasco has, is Roses and a lot of open dirt. I would say I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. The most exciting part of Wasco is 7th Street, which is where all of the high school students go to eat for lunch.
Our mall, is Kmart and our biggest grocery store is Save Mart. Many people don’t realize how privileged they in their towns. Our fanciest restaurant is Denny’s, and the smaller Mexican restaurants. I was comfortable here in Wasco, but I dreamed of going to a BIGGER and more unique place. My step-father’s parents are from Italian decent and they always told me about how BEAUTIFUL Italy was, and how much of a great experience it is just to go. They always said, “It’s the most famous boot, everyone has to have it at some point in their lives!”
My dream is to one day visit Italy, and experience a new culture. The language and the country is beautiful! I want to one day speak Italian, so that way when I come home have an accent. Being in Italy I would also be able to experience the activities first hand, not listen to them in a story. Learning how to ride a gondola would be really fun, and it is something I would find in Wasco. The architecture of the buildings in Italy are absolutely beautiful, if I were to go tour Italy one day, I would be more of a cultural tourist. I would want to engulf myself in the Italian culture.
The food in Italy is also a great thing to experience in Italy because it’s fresh from the country! The food there is authentic and hand-made, the REAL DEAL!
