Yes, Yale is in New Haven. Yale is a pretty cool place, nice bars and cafés all around but New Haven itself is not such a nice place. Since the crisis hit the states there are a lot of empty houses there and lots of unemployment...So you better park your car on campus. Safer that way.
Nice places you've been to. I also visited the Grand Canyon while I was in Vegas. But it was sooo hot. I'll never go there in august again. But the best experience was riding the roller coaster (well, kind of roller coaster) on top of the stratosphere tower. It takes you over the rim and you just hang there in the air, 350m over the ground. Adrenaline rush guaranteed!
Florida sounds great. Never been there but all the stories I've heard about it. Must be a gorgeous place. I'm planning a road trip with a friend this summer. 3 weeks on the road, from atlanta all the way up and down again.
Haha, no I don't have a Jersey license. I never really thought about getting one and no one really asked me about it. I got pulled over just once and they didn't really care if my license was German or not. My friend got one, though. Pretty easy to get. You didn't even have to take a real driving test. Only needed to read the manual and do some multiple choice questions on a touch-screen. Done! I have a friend from Alabama and his license is...well...pretty awesome. He has the weirdest picture ever.
Sorry I haven't replied up to now....
I also went to Nevada in August it was like...unbelievable hot. But they offered "Ice Cold Dollar-Water" for $1 on every corner "
I've also been to the top of the stratosphere tower but I only went there to enjoy the view....I hate roller coasters.
Yeah, licenses are easy to get, but only if you have a visa.....It was illegal by the way, to not get a license in NJ. You have to if you stay longer thant 6 months....but actually nobody will ever find out.
In Florida you can get your learner's permit at age 15 (w/o a driving test, btw you'll simply have to take a multiple choice test :D) and when I went to Florida and I was 15, it really sucked to know that 15 year olds in FL were allowed to drive and I wasn't. I had to wait another two years. And what did you get pulled over for?
What I like so much about American licenses is that they represent your state. In general not only with licenses everybody can identifiy so much with their state and that's really cool..
it's not that way in Germany.
But right now I'm glad it's not that way here because I - let's say - hate the federal state I'm living in. I'm an "unwillingly relocated teenager"
Talking about identifying with your state....
What's your opinion towards the patriotism in the U.S.?
