On a recent trip that my grandparents took my cousin and I to Disney world for a week. While we were there we visited all the parks. When we were Epcot, which is one of the parks where they have special buildings for the future and buildings from things that happened in the past. In this park they have buildings around this lake representing buildings from all over the world. In the United States building they had these machines that looked like real people that did a play. It started with the wild wild west and ended with the 9/11 attacks. These plays were amazing because the machines would come up from out of nowhere and start doing their scene.
Being that my grandpa’s side of the family is from Italy we went to the part where they had Italy buildings. The buildings in this section were set up like a little town in Italy. We ate at the Italian restaurant called Tutto Italia Ristorante. When we walked in to the restaurant it made you feel like you had traveled over to Italy. The food tasted like you were in Italy. The restaurant made all of their pasta and other main dishes from scratch.
The waitresses and staff were all from Italy. Our waitress had a story of her own. She grew up in a small family. She graduated her high school and went off to college to study abroad. She was working at Disney for an internship for the summer then in autumn she would head back to Italy to finish up her schooling. She spoke very good English but she was very fluent in many languages. My grandpa and her talked for hours, my cousin and I didn’t mind cause in that day we learned more about the Italian culture than we would have ever learned. In meeting her she made me realize that even though you are from a small town if you have dreams you can accomplish them and make something of yourself.
