Carolyn Greenfield Scenario II

When Carolyn woke up the next morning she ordered room service and watched some movies on pay per view. She was not really in the mood to go out in the hustle and bustle of the new city just yet and by mid-afternoon she thought she would be but for now she just wanted to be a lazy bum. At about two o’clock in the afternoon she decided she should probably phone home just so her family would know she made it safely. By the time she had spoken to everyone back home she decided she would venture out into the city. But before she left she had to make up her mind as two where she would go. So she got her laptop out and searched for sites that she thought appealed to her nature.
It did not take her long to figure out what place she wanted to visit. When she looked up her information she was astounded when she realized that she didn’t much know about this marvelous historical place. As soon as she realized that how much fascinating information that there was about this national monument she got ready and headed out on her adventure.
It took her about 6 hours to get to her destination. Thankfully the traffic was not too horrible and she was able to drive herself with car she rented from the hotel services. Since it took her so long to get there she got there at about 7 o’clock in the evening.
Once she got to the Statue of Liberty, she was able to walk through and read all the different facts about it. She never knew that it was given to the United States by the French and was completed in June. She also did not know that it was presented to America on July 4, 1884, almost a year after it was finished. Another fact she read about was that it was almost another year before the Statue of Liberty was dismantled to be shipped to the United States.
She seemed to finish reading the facts about the Stature of Liberty just in time to divert her attention to fantastic firework display that was going off. No one around her knew why there were fireworks but they didn’t care either fore it was the dead of winter and she along with everyone else were getting to see a marvelous firework display.
