whew… spent the last 5 days in FL, today in MD. am slowly getting home to NY. i have been doing this for awhile now, but right now i really feel like i have been traveling too much and need to just be at home for a bit. so… am getting ready to do that. maybe for the entire month of may! i love may!
floridia: i never went to disneyland or world. so this was a funny and big trip! i got to experience weird disney stuff for the first time, just like all the children who were there. it was a fun few days, and i enjoyed the rides and parks and all much more than i expected to. rides are fun! whether they are linked to a corporate entity or not. i also went to sea world, which was really cool, and took a car trip to naples to work for a great photographer (johnathon kane). we also tried to make his opening for a gallery show, but, i am bad at keeping track of times, we got pulled over for speeding, saw a family of boars i had to stop and freak out about, and we stopped to pee way too many times. so, we sort of missed that. but i still got to model for him: )
check out this rollar coaster i went on>>> def. though there was a chance i was going to die. the seat buckle system was not working on the coaster were on (there are two that leave off side by side), and it was making me really freaked out. they finally switched us to the other coaster, but by then i was so so scared something was wrong, i could barely enjoy the ride. but i like rushes like that, so i am glad i did it.
what people who write about this stuff say:
“The Manta is an inverted, or flying, roller coaster, and from what is known of the Manta, thrill seekers strapped in to their seats in an upright position and then the coaster will tilt the riders into the prone position. Just above their backs is a gigantic 12 foot manta, sculpted to look like the giant ocean dwellers. The coaster riders will then be boosted along the tracks, initiating a journey throughout the entire park that includes a trip through an immense aquarium, complete with ocean animals such as manta rays and sea horses. The wings of the Manta structure will skim the top of the water. Whether you are a spectator or the rider, there is a chance that you might get a little soaked from this experience.
The Manta can reach top speeds of up to 56 miles an hour, and when you add this in with the twists and turns that only this roller coaster can bring, you will be in for the ride of your life. ”
none of that really explains it… i just cant believe it am still alive!
